AC -Air Conditioning

Ac works good and cold but just started coming out of the defroster vents not the dash. Ac radiator fan is not getting power to it. Ps I am not sure if there are tapped in as well, but my front steps will not lock by the switch unless key is on also electric jacks once key is turned on I get power for one second to the hydraulics and then no power. Don't know if these are all tied into one relay or not.

Usually when vents stop working properly there is a vacuum line involved that has started to leak. Not sure why this would be related to your other problems but some info on your coach would be helpful.

Parking brake on, in park, key on, you should have levelers. Check in the stair well [entry] for rocker switches that control your steps. Hope this helps.

If a DP then electric vacuum pump.

Possible blown fuse or loose wire as many electric things not working.

Pause a moment....Do you remember a motor running sound when key turned on and ac on but engine not running?

Turn key on and listen for vacuum pump ( if dp).

If none look for pump to check it out.

Also locate power distribution centers and or fuse blocks and check voltages with a voltmeter.

When the heat/ac system loses vacuum the fail safe is to defrost. So either a broken vacuum line or vacuum pump failure.
