A/c only on electric hook up?

So my sunsport ac (while driving) went out. Freon out maybe? Wondering if there is a way to work above unit on generator as it's 110' already.

To be clear, you're asking about running your roof air on the gen. going down the road?

Sure! Go for it...

What are you running...dash air or roof air? From the question, it is about as clear as mud.

How that's done depends on your coach. Some later models will (should) switch automatically, some you need to plug your power cord into a receptacle located in the power cord compartment. If you have 2 roof AC's, there may be a switch, usually somewhere near the 110v circuit breakers, you need to move to "front".

If none of that works, there are circuit breakers on the generator itself that will pop on occasion. You may want to make sure they are on.

Good Luck!

When you are running the generator do other 110v items work? Most generators have a breaker on the control panel on the generator. So if other 110v itmes are not working check that, plus the breakers in the circuit box in the coach.
If other 110v itmes are working but the roof a/c is not something else is wrong. You said you did plug the power cord into the plug in the cord storage area?
One or 2 roof top a/c units?

Many of us run roof air when going down the road, in 100+ heat it's the only way to keep cool.

If the dash air has completly failed you may need to "Mount" (With removable straps) somethign like a box fan in the hall behind the driver since roof air often does not help much in the "Cockpit" area.
