Angry Air conditioner

Ok, so I don’t know much but we have a problem. We are at a small campground somewhere in eastern Kentucky. Air conditioner has worked fine for the past week. 2002 Winnebago Adventurer. This morning got up and air will not come on. Had planned to see Creation Museum today but can’t leave RV without air because we have 4 teacup poodles we can’t leave in a hot RV. Husband has checked breakers and fuses, can hear a click in the wall Panal but nothing happens. He’s not fun to live with when he’s worried. Any ideas?

Start with he basics, make sure there is power available from the Pedestal. Try running he air with the generator turned on, unplugged from the campground power.

Sounds as if your ac has a bad capacitor. They are relatively easy to replace but it may be worth your wild to call in a service tech and get it going. Got to keep those poodles cool.

By the way, we set up an inexpensive monitoring system so we can keep an eye on our little Cooper when we are out and about.

Is your monitoring system a dyi? or is it one of the one's I'm getting advertisements for? We have two "kids"/dogs that we will occasionally leave in our rig for short periods of time.

Check the only simple thing that I can think of first. Make sure the freeze plug sensor didn't fall out of the coils.

Remember that you need both 12VDC and 120VAC for the A/C units to operate. Have you checked the 12VDC fuses?

There are also fuses on the control board inside the rooftop unit.

After you check the fuses Joe referenced, unplug 12V power from the back of the 'stat for a few minutes then reattach. This supposedly is a master reset of the 'stat.

Yes. It is very simple system. Lot of them out there. We chose Lorex because we use their camera systems at our home and farms.

The two cameras comes in a set from Lorex for about $80. It is called ďFull HD Smart Indoor Wi-Fi Security Camera 2pkĒ. You have to have wi-fi but we hook ours up to a hotspot, download their free app and whamo. You have pictures of the inside of your coach or home with 2 way voice.
