    Does anyone know what certification, if any, one needs to have in order to work on RV heaters and air conditioners?

    For car A/C units there is a simple state test here in Pa, not sure if that helps.
    check state motor vehicle websites i guess.

    If you are talking about self-contained units or roof top 120volt units, then it is the same as a window shaker. If it is powered by the engine, then mvac epa 609. I donb't believe that epa 609 will allow you to purchase R22. (not sure)

    In N.Y., rooftop units are 608. Not driven by the engine so not MVAC.They are the same as window units as far as classification goes

    Just take the old one off and install the new one....no need to open the system,unless you're actually thinking about repairing one.
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    Although that would be the best solution seeing how these units get beat up and abused, I've seen replacement units costing close to a grand. The folks with the big rigs and all the bucks would go that way. But the ones who can barely make the payments on the thing want them fixed if at all possible.I've fixed quite a few unless of course they've sawed it off on a bridge underpass or big tree limb

    ok now we aare getting somewhere, you will need the EPA 608 to work on those systems . That is not the MVAC unit that you are talking about, and if those poor people that can barely afford to buy the motorhome, and can barely afford to buy gas for something that gets 8 miles to the gallon
    they can surely budget for an air conditioner repair or replacement.

    and yes , the 609 allows you to buy refrigerant . It doesnt specify what kind of refrigerant you can buy
