I believe what your seeing is the industry standards , poor practices. I have been a Forman for a large electrical contractor for 30+ years . RV's in NO way follow the installation practices we use for any form of modern construction of any type. I think you maybe able to recover your money if you send a letter to trailer life , they have a help section that owner write in trying to get money from dealer and manufactures for out of pocket repairs that shouldn't have been a problem to being with. Wish you luck , Not sure if lawyer road is going to help or cause problems .

AC Stopped working

The main AC unit has been fine and out of the blue, the AC unit stopped working regardless of what setting I use. I ran the thermostat up to 90 and switched over to the heat pump, nothing there either. Checked and cycled all the breakers on the interior panel and at the service box. Below is an image of the thermostat that came with the rig. The unit is a Coleman-Mach Model #48004-869

Not liking my Redwood right now. Any help is appreciated...

If you turn the fan switch to on, does it turn on? There might be a slight delay.

No, and I check the fuse in the thermostat and it's fine. The gas furnace still comes on, just no AC and no heat pump. My guess is it's a capacitor on the AC unit its self. I will check it tomorrow.

AC stopped working- Update #1

After completing the following, I was able to determine there is no 120v power at the AC unit. But thought it would be helpful for others to see the process I followed troubleshooting this problem. To follow are the step I took in to establish a loss of power to the unit:

1. Checked power at pedestal-both legs good
2. Checked power at the breaker- 120v
3. Checked all 12v fuses in the breaker box. All good.
4. Checked fuse and power to Thermostat. Good.
5. Bypassed the thermostat-jumped 12v power directly. AC Unit did not respond.
6. Check both capacitors with a multimeter. Both are good
7. Turned shore power on and check the 120v power to the AC before it drops into the capacitors-No power.

The AC unit is mounted right next to my Maxair fan, directly over the island in the kitchen and I am wondering if the trim above the island light (see image) is hiding access to the AC unit 120v power. My thought would be the connections to the AC unit are in a junction box that's hidden under the ceiling trim. I really don't want to pull the AC unit unless it's my own only option.

I appreciate any ideas or suggestions you may have...

Safe travels...

You probably already checked when you were in the breaker panel, but did you verify that you have 120V coming off the breaker for the AC? I would check all the breakers as I have found some of my breakers don't match the installed labels.

Also, the AC power connection at the unit is under the cover. On the roof.
