Repairing
paint
damage
Check once or twice a year for paint damage. This may
occur, especially in salty environments (near oceans, etc.)
or where rust is a problem. If needed, touch up with a good
grade enamel paint.
NOTE:
To reduce paint damage during the winter, install
a heavy-duty cover on your air conditioner's cabinet. For
information on ordering a heavy-duty cover see page 11.
