May have been a cheap $20 or less start capacitor bad on it.
Would just boarding the dogs be less then missing work?
Are they other things that don't work in the RV from the mishap?
Refrigerator, TV's, water heater, converter, etc.
104V is too low for the AC as it will drop when the compressor try's to start if it can.
Our original AC was fine. It did not need replacing. We plugged into a bad pedestal which fried the wire from the breaker to the ac. Breaker is fine. Tech who was sent out from the campground told us our motor was shot in an attempt to sell us a unit for $1000.00. The only thing we had on when this occured was the ac as we were in the process of setting up camp. Nothing else was damaged in the process.
On the advice of the tech we purchased a used ac. During the switchover process we determined our ac was fine except for the switch he "cut" when attempting to remove the ceiling assembly.
How difficult is it to rerun the wire from the ac to the breaker inside the camper and put it back to original. The tech wants to run it wild and staple it to my ceiling and walls.
Im asking for advice because this tech who the campground is providing has lied to me on several occasions and cost us due to his poor diagnosis.
Boarding the dogs....HMMMM....thats kinda why we have the camper so we can move about freely the guys are always at home. My dogs have never been left with strangers, dont think I'd want to start now.
Thanks for any advice.
