The Coleman front A/C unit was running fine 2 weeks ago. Went to start it yesterday and their was nothing. No fan or air. Any ideas. Where is the circuit breaker for it? I think it could be the capacitor on unit.

Lonnie...I'll ask the obvious so please forgive me... Did you check the Breakers?

Breaker is on your main panel and should be clearly marked.

I am going to check when I get home. Thought about that when driving in to work. Is it in the breaker box under the bed?

Should be... Have you checked the breaker???

Next...if it is the breaker, you reset it and then it trips again, then you need to have it looked at to see why it keeps tripping...could be a simple short or loose connection somewhere...let us know what you find please.

Circuit breakers are in your power distribution center (Breaker box of course. There is also a breaker on your Generator which MAY (or not) be involved.

Do you have a WALL thermostat or is it "local control"
Wall mount did you hear a CLICK when you turned it on at the T-Stat?

IF NOT. then your prblem may be 12 volt not 120 volt
Check fuse panel
Check furnace (if same stat) breaker (on an atwood it is on top of hte blower housing OUTSIDE the RV you need to remove 4 srews)
and finally some Thermostats have an internal battery.
And of course dead T-Stat.

One thought. .Usually about this time of year my A/C's will start tripping the breaker.. Usually after I park under cottonwoods in cotton season.. Why I'm avoiding cottonwoods this spring

What causes it (In case you missed the hint) The "Cotton" wood cotton (Seeds) clog the condenser so air can not flow freely through the coils and cool the refrigerant. This causes the system to get hotter and hotter, and this causes the compressor to work harder and harder.. As the pressure builds current draw goes from 13 to 14,15, .... 20, 21..zero (The breaker trips).

Up on the roof. "Pop" (Remove properly) the cover, peal off the cotton and brush (soft bristle) off any other crud. Replace cover. job done (Coleman description) for the Coleman you only need to remove 4 bolts (Ph8llips. like a #4 head as I recall.)

ON my Advent air, it's about a dozen #2 phillips screws then ORIGINALLY you cut tape and bend tabs to get the inner cover off Then remove fan so you have room to work and clean the INSIDE side of the condenser.

BUT the Advent air being made in China and the fan being "Round" olike a tire it turns out it was a "China Bomb" (Look it up) and went BOOM. I really mean BOOM, sounded like an explosing.. Well turns out the Coleman fan fits. perfectly.. But .. It Sucks (THe OEM fan blew) so now I dont have to mess with that blasted inner cover when I clean it either.

WHY I like Coleman A/Cs reason 1.. and there is a reason 2 as well.
