filter should be cleaned frequently to avoid accumulation of dust. When cleaning, please use a soft towel or sponge, dip it in water or non-corrosive neutral detergent to clean, and finally wipe it with water and a dry rag.
3. Do not use a soft towel or other sponge with dripping water when cleaning, to avoid water droplets penetrating the indoor electromechanical control and causing damage to the substrate, or even starting a fire.
4. Do not use hard brushes, steel balls, wire brushes, abrasives (e.g., toothpaste), organic solvents (e.g., alcohol, acetone, banana water, etc.), boiling water, or acid or alkaline items when cleaning, as this will damage the air conditioner of the RV.
