It eventually happens to every ac window unit I have ever owned, the
accordian-like rubber panels on the side rip. I use duct tape as a
temporary cure, but it looks sloppy,
Are replacement panels available(other than from the manufacturer)?
I have never seen any available from anyone like Frost King. Perhaps
I am looking in the wrong places.
Make some. Plywood, paneling, aluminum siding. cardboard boxes, sheets of
thick plastic. Anything in the range of 1/4" to 1/2" will work. As long as
the AC is going back in the same width window, you are set for life.
These might help....
