A/C Beeping

Greyhawk has something beeping inside. It appears to be coming from the A/C unit. I can see a red light on up inside but can't seem to stop the beeping.

Are you hooked to shore power ?
Trying to use the A/C, while plugged in at your house ?
Checked that your batteries have a good charge?
Converter/charger working properly?

My thermostat has a low battery alarm ; that was NOT covered in the owners manual , that's why I'm asking.

OK back to electrical basics.
I'm assuming you're plugged into power at your house .
That would be a standard 110 volt 15 amp circuit .
If your RV power cord has a three prong plug , that would be for a 110 volt 30 amp plug.
If you're powering up your RV using an adapter , and an extension cord ,from your house, and trying to operate your A/C, the power your getting could be too low for the A/C to operate, and the beeping could be an warning to say don't operate the A/C .
Go to the 110 volt breaker box in your RV and flip the A/C circuit breaker off , it will be a dedicated circuit : the beeping should stop; and all other 110 volt items in the RV should work.
When stored in my yard , I power up my RV ; that requires 110 volt and dual 50 amp power through a four prong plug , using adapters and a 100 foot extension cord. The only things that will operate without overloading the house circuit with that length of code are the converter to charge the batteries and the fridge , anything else will trip the circuit breaker in the garage.

Beeping Found

I found an Old smoke detector that had fallen down behind the TV that batteries were going dead. This after talking myself in and out of the fact it was coming from the A/C unit. Having 3 other people assure me that the sound was coming from the A/C.

I pulled fuses, shut off breakers, disconnected batteries, downloaded manuals charged batteries, etc. Finally in frustration I decided to throw out that old monster TV next to the fridge and there it was.

Well at least your fixed, hope that all your problems only cost a little time to track down and repair , not a fist full of dollars.
