Why does it do this?

See signature for coach info. Our DS has 3 A/C unit, all same size. 2 are on one leg of the 220 and the 3rd, which is the furthest aft on the other leg. Whenever we turn on the overhead fluorescent light in the bedroom the rear A/C just trips offline. Doesn’t throw a breaker but just quits. Turn the light off and in a few minutes it’s comes back on. Any thoughts?

I recall a discussion about RF interference from the fluorescent fixture impacting the thermostat. I think the answer was replacing the lighting.

Swap the fluorescent tubes out for the LED tubes, should solve your issue. Many of the LED tubes have you cut the transformer out of the wiring loop and just power the LED bulb with straight 12 volt power. When looking for LED bulbs in a similar lighting color, you probably should look in the 3500K to 4000K range.
