Duo-therm penguin a/c model 610015-001 problems

I bought a really nice 86 vogueII, 35 mh and the rear air doesn't power up or turn on. The fellow I purchased said it was a thermostat. You can tell its original digital control panel but doesn't display. Any help on where or how to replace thermostat or control/display board?? Many thanks for any help.

Sometimes replacing a thermostat in an RV gets to be complicated. It has to be compatible with the A/C and the furnace. I'd suggest removing the present thermostat, noting the wire colors, and contact a good vendor that will get you matched up with one that works. Some A/C units require upgraded control boards, I don't know about your unit. These folks seem to know what works:

Does the thermostat have an lcd display and buttons around the sides?

That was top of the line but not compatable with anything else.

It has a ribbon cable that interfaces to round wire to unit.

Carefully remove it from wall and reseat connections.

Repeat at other end.

Make sure voltages are good FIRST.

Locate a manual and perform the troubleshooting procedure before doing anything else.

Can you post a picture of the thermostat?

Also, have you checked all of your fuses as the thermostats run on 12vdc?

Are you trying to run this second AC while on shore power, or from the genny? I'm wondering if you have any power to it.

If running on shore power, often there is a switch somewhere in the coach, that allows you to run the rear vs. front AC. If it's not positioned correctly, it's only going to let you power up the front AC.

If you're trying to run from the genny, often you can find a circuit breaker right on the gen set that will be tripped.

Bottom line, the rear AC on these older coaches is generally on a separate circuit. It does not power up with everything else. The coach is set up with 30a power. There were few, if any, 50a power setups in use then.
