1997 Fleetwood Pace Arrow AC 1 Shed

I'm currently at Fiesta Key down in the Keys. I have a climate control that controls both front and back AC's. The front AC sheds back and forth on Auto when only one AC is on. When I mean shed, that's when the fan runs without the compressor, usually due to lack of power. It's a 30 amp RV that usually has no problem running both AC's as long as everything else is off. The rear AC runs with no problem but the front AC sheds on auto with everything else off to include AC #2. I can run both on high cool which I believe forces the compressor to run. I think it is the amps from the RV park but just wanted to ensure everything is fine with the coach. Thinking of unplugging and turning on the generator to see how it performs. Any AC experts or someone with a similar experience out there?

If it is the shed system waiter21 has a replacement system that is cheaper and much better than the intellitec system.
The generator is a good idea. I have good luck with disconnecting the battery and running the intellitec system switch up and down a dozen or so times. This cleans the points of any build up and makes good contact. It worked on about 75% of the coaches I worked on.

I had the same problem with my 1999 Pace Arrow 34N. The waiter21 unit resolved the issue.

AC shed

I have found most of the time it is the park, I would get park to check pedestal. I also purchased new ECC from waiter 21 plug and play works great, if ECC is problem.

I will try this. AC works perfectly with generator.
