Have you ever thought about cleaning your camper ceiling AC filter? I happened to look up at our ceiling in the camper and realize how dirty the air conditioner was!! This is how I cleaned it.
Did you know that unlike a home filter which is disposable, a camper’s AC filter is simply able to be cleaned and reused?
Camper Ceiling AC Filter BEFORE cleaning
When I first tried to clean it, I think I was just wiping off the exterior part. When I looked closely, though, I realized that there was a lot of dust inside that I couldn’t reach. And I began to realize that it must come apart somehow.
I didn’t want to break it, so I poked around gently until I was able to figure it out. Now I can show you how I did it!
The outer cover snaps off…. work on it gently and carefully so that you don’t break the plastic tabs! If you watch the video below, you can see how the tabs fit in so you can take it apart.
Once you have the cover snapped off, there is an inner filter that comes off of the outer cover. It is on the right in the picture below. See how dirty it is?!!
I was amazed at how dirty it was!! All you need to do to clean it, is run it under water (outside with a hose) and rub it gently with your fingers. Then let it dry completely before putting the camper ceiling AC filter back together.

See how nice and clean the filter is now? I was so happy, knowing that we would be breathing clean air again!
Put the two pieces together, and then snap it back up into the camper’s ceiling AC unit.
Then enjoy looking up at your clean camper air conditioner!
Then remember to repeat each spring. I hope this has been helpful to you!
