Question Duo-therm reads EE

I recently hooked up ac to Golden Falcon 1997 rv. Thermostat read EE. Downloaded manual but no help. The 12v battery is dead. Also the power slides don't work. Is the dead battery the problem?

Right now its the problem you need to concentrate on fixing. You also need to find out why your batteries lost their charge in the first place. Was this RV in storage? Was the battery disconnect switch turned off? Was a battery charger used?

Air thermostat reads ee

What does EE mean on the thermostat. I know the battery is dead because we checked it. I also found out the frig has to have dc to start. Today the slides are working after sitting with the ac power hooked up.

Most of the 12v appliances need a min of 9v to function. You need to resolve the DC (battery) issue before attempting any repairs. To reset the error code I believe you power off the thermostat then hold the MODE and ZONE buttons while powering it back on. Resolve your 12v issue first. I'm not sure if EE or FE is a configuration problem on the A/C(s) head unit. If you've added/or replaced it, the dip switches on the control board may need to be setup/changed.

When you have a charged up battery go ahead and program the thermostat.

I just replaced mine and what I was told to do to start it off was to turn it off. Hold in the mode and zone buttons and turn it on while pressing the 2 buttons until EE shows then program. It worked. I was not led astray for a change.

Smile Thanks to all

We hooked up the batteries last weekend. the fridge came on. However the a/c is still not working. We plan to put in a new thermostat and then go from there.

Since it sounds as tho the trailer had not been used for long time, to check on the AC--need to take cover off on top and look it over for wasp nests, other debris etc. Move the fan by hand to see if it is frozen in position--sometimes, just giving it movement by hand will help. I all that doesn't work, and the thermostat is replaced, then you will need a technician to look at it.
