Default Ac not working can I get on top of the roof of my t139?

My ac is not working and I would like to climb up on my camper roof to check it. Will a t139 hold the weight or should I use planks? Has anyone had luck with.oiling the motor? How do I oil it? I made need it replaced any suggestions in Dallas texas?

The roof will support you, but of course you need to be careful you don't tear the roof covering. I use a sheet of cardboard.
You need to give us some more detail on the problem your having with the AC. Kind of hard to comment without knowing what the specific issue is.

It sounds like it wants to run but won"t. I only get a humming noise. I went online and found out I should have oiled it? Well if that would work to get it running that would be great, but I am seeing on line it is just better to replace them instead of replacing the fan motor. It's 14 years old now. I was going to try to take the shroud off and see what I can find. I may just take it to a shop. but they are so expensive...

Might see if you can remove the cover from the inside (power off!!!). See if you can reach up and turn the blower fan (squirrel cage). Might be locked, might spin. Good place to start.

If the interior fan check doesn't work - check the capacitor

It would not hurt to use a sheet of thin plywood on top while you are up there -- that spreads the weight even more than cardboard would.

Let us know what happens with your air conditioner! Good luck.
