Had a short power outage and now the AC won't kick in. The fan starts but the condenser will not. ??? Any suggestions? Checked all the fuses. Checked the circuit breakers. ???

Are you sure you're getting 220 volts out of your power source? I'd first unplug the trailer and wait a few minutes and then plug it back in. I'm not sure if the inverter had a relay in it or not. Also flip the circuit breakers completely off and back on to make sure they're snapped in place.

If you have a generator, see if the A/C works on it.

Good luck

Was it a complete outage or a brown out? If it was a brown out (reduced voltage) it may have damaged the compreesor or if it just happened, the compessor also has aautomaticreset overload. Once it re-sets it should work again.

If the fan is running but the compressor isn't, there is power to the unit. If it has been shut off for 10-15 minutes, and doesn't start when turned on again, it sounds like a relay or something in the A/C itself.
