2012 390FL smoke

Taking a nap on our third trip and awoke to white smoke coming out of both AC units. The best part....Coach.net is not answering their phone and it rolls to a voice mailbox which cannot accept any new messages because its full. Maybe its me but what does 24/7 mean? We greatly appreciate any suggestions.

Units probably both froze up. Turn the off for about 30 minutes and then turn them back on. They should be defrosted by then. In a high humidity/warm temperature, they sometimes frost over on condensor coil and blow 'smoke'. No real cause for alarm unless it smells of electrical wire, etc.

Yeah kinda weird that both would do it. To be electrical.
Unless the cg power was severely low.
Be curious to see what happened.

I had a similar experience on our first trip. But it was cold out and the heat pump was working. Turns out the compressor failed and leaked the freon. I also saw that we had oil leaking from the vent. The dealer replaced the unit and then our second trip I turned on the back ac unit and the same thing happened to the back unit also. Dealer was great but still a pain to deal with.

Good luck with it. Make sure you check both units. Look in the main vent with a flashlight and see if any oil is present. The rear unit on ours when you would turn it off would leak the freon in the interior of the coach and it would be unbearable for a few minutes as we vented it out. Like you my first unit did this when we were sleeping so it was a unpleasant way to wake up with the coach full of fog/smoke. I hope our new units will not have the same problem.
