One thing, if I connect to shore power would the A/C work then or do I still need to fix the problem I mentioned above..Thank You in advance, Ron.
the step was the first thing i noticed in my '12 Thor Daybreak. in my old windsport i had a disconnect for the chassis and a seperate one for the coach. on the daybreak there is only one disconnect. stupid if you ask me. the step is what really bothers me out of the whole thing. like i want someone getting that extra leverage to break my window while it's in storage?? dumb, dumb, dumb. we are out at least once a month so i'm in it enough that my coach batteries never get low so i've resorted to never disconnecting it. i make sure everything is turned off and double check that. if i ever did store it for a long time i guess the option is to live with it or install some sort of switch in between the stair motor and the batter to manually cut that circut.
if it is a new rig and you're a/c is not working, i'd head back to the dealer. did a tech not walk through and turn everything on/off with you to confirm it all worked prior to driving off?
