Air Conditioning Shuts down

This happened for the first time during the night last evening and just now it happened again.

Front and Rear AC are on and functioning properly when all of a sudden they both shut down. Looked at Progressive surge suppressor and it says that the condition of the electric is fine. I reset the circuit breakers for the air conditioners and they are fine. The rest of the coach has electric and is fine. Could it be the Duo-therm Comfort control Center is going bad? The screen is blank and when I turn it off and back on again, it comes on but does not turn the air conditioners on. CCC will not turn anything on- not the fan only mode, won't go to furnace or heat pump when I go through the modes, it show 4 fan speeds (low, med, high, auto) when normally there is only 3 (low, high, auto).

Any way to trouble shoot the Control Center.

Update- just shut the control center off for about 5 minutes and now, the air conditioners are working.

Is there something in the circuit that can be checked or is there a way to check the comfort control center?

is there a way u can pull the control panel (i'm thinking like a home thermostat that plugs that u can pull off the base). if so remove it (to remove the power); if there are batteries in it remove them. bottom line is to try and remove power form it for abt 5 min then reinstall and/or put the power back to it and see if it will reset. other than that, i would look for a reset on it. that may reset it.

Read the following posts about the transfer switch having a recall and catching fire. 2005 -2011

You can find the recall information at : Type in the recall number 12V341000 and it will cover the years and models. It covers 850 unit made between 2005 - 2011 and says FR will replace the transfer switch free of change. The notice also provided a FR phone number to call. 574-295-8749
