The ac unit is a Dometic model number 541916A701C0. It is ducted through the camper. The fan sounds like it comes on in fan mode. Its almost like it has an obstruction that keeps the air from blowing.
We bought the extra warranty. It is a holiday, so, will someone come to fix it? We are still in our driveway!

You do know a/c blows from the ceiling vents and heat only blows from the floor vents right? I only ask because if your not familiar with campers sometimes people don't realize this. If you don't have air blowing from the white round ceiling vents, look in the ceiling above the microwave and above the table. Those rectangle louvers are the air inlets. Under the louvers are filters. You could take the louvers off and check for obstructions there.....make sure the hole is cut (unlikely but I've heard of it before)

Thanks M109Rider. I will check. It wouldnt surprise me. They did not open the valves to the hot water heater and we had to crawl up inside and open them up. We will check that. Thanks!

Nope. That wasnt it.I know the ac is working. I can feel like a whisper of air through the vents and it is cold. The fan must not be kicking in, ??

Sounds like the fan is doing something, did you try turning the fan to high?

This may have already been suggested but...next to ur air into the ac unit, do u have a slide vent u can open? Try opening and see if u get air.
U can put a piece of paper on the intake(filter} grill and see if air is being pulled in. if it isnt, id try and see if the squirl cage fan is turning. Its possible the fan wasnt tightenef on the motor shaft (ive seen this one time).
Even if there is a blockage, when u open the quick cool vent, air should move. (the quick cool is the slide next to the grill covering the filter). My unit is old...they tend to change them.

Different kind of A/C. Ours use a ducted a/c return like a home central air unit.

Sorry abt tt, I did repeat sug in either post 5 or 6.
What abt checking the air into the filter for flow? If it wont hold a piece of paper, id try and locate that fan and see if it is turning.
Where is ur return filter located? Did I read earlier the unit was on the roof?
Is it also a split unit like home units?

The filters are under the 2 return louvers on the ceiling
