Holiday Rambler Imperial 33'

Hello, I just purchased a Holiday Rambler Imperial RV and I need direction to fix some minor problems.
1. The front and rear AC/Heat units won't work simultaneously when plugged into power. They only work together with the on board generator. I was wondering how to get them both working on plug in.
2. My water heater works when IT wants
3. The on board refridgerator/freezer seems to not work when plugged in
4. The ice maker is getting water, just won't drop the ice
I am a "rookie" to the RV world and would appreciate any direction/help I can get. She is a beautiful, well maintained "Rolls Royce of an RV!" Thank You!

It sounds like you may be having a "shore power" problem...

Maybe fire up your genny and check things out.
Akso take a look at your power management system panel.

More info?

one a/c at a time is normal for a coach w/ 30Amp electrical service, the generator, rated at ~40amp is able to power both however. have you tried leaving the refrigerator turned on electric for a number of hours? if so, the electric heating element is probably ready for replacement. No clue about icemaker sorry

For your fridge I would check your breaker panel for 110. Does it work on the propane side. When you first plug them in they can take hrs. before they start to get cold. If your water heater is gas/elect. there is a litlte rocker switch on the tank you have put to elect to get it to work on electric. Make sure there is water in the tank or the element will burn out very quickly. That also may be your problem, the element may be burned out. Does it run on the propane side? The a/c is like said above they need more than 30 amps for both to run. Good luck.
