Thermostat blows fuse

I thought I would pass along this bit of info to all interested folks-

We're in coastal Maine for the summer as a campground's host for the summer- our 8th year.

We had two Travel trailers come in for a weeks stay last week- They were together, from around Syracuse NY.

The larger unit, about 32', was a new camper. When he put on his A/C the thermostat would immediately blow it's (the thermostat) internal .05 amp, fast blow, fuse. He went on the hunt for this small glass fuse. He found some at Radio Shack on Monday morning. He blew 2 more fuses when the A/C was activated. I told him to take it back to the dealer when he gets home, but he wanted to get it fixed "now"- and was willing to pay for a service call to save his week of vacation with 6 people living in this rig. It was very humid at the time.

I gave him the name of "Coastal RV Service" (207-577-3705) in Topsham, Maine. We have used John Maclean's services many times in the past.
John came out the next morning and had the problem identified and fixed in 5 minutes- . I saw him after he was done and he said "when a fairly new, or new rig, has "that fuse" blow in the thermostat, it always is a "chaffed wire"- . This one was in the ceiling.

I heard this guests RV's A/C humming for the rest of the week as I passed by it for the completion of their stay- .

Hope this helps someone down the road--

Cheers, and happy travels-

You BOTH should do a write up on rvservicereviews.com and forward the link of the website to the service provider. You will be amazed the reaction when they realize they are being reviewed on the internet and they received a good review.
