AC will not come on

Camping this weekend and the ac on our Roo23SS will not run. Plugged into 50 amp circuit. Reset breaker. Pulled fuses and they look fine.
Blower will run but the compressor will not come on.

Looking for ideas and suggestions.

Sounds like the compressor is locked up. Just had mine replaced for the same issue. Mine was brand new, 1st time using it.

You could always have a mobile repair man come. Might get lucky and it be a relay or capacitor.

I recall getting a click by either sound or feel when I adjusted the thermostat. Now I do not. Unit has the basic thermostat control.

Also tried to fire up the heat. Furnace does not come on. Bad thermostat?

Tested the voltages. Between ground and ac only getting 8.5 volts. Other spots like fan, getting 12.

Turn the thermostat OFF then try unplugging the 50 power then disconnect the battery. Yes take both the + and the - cables off for about 60 seconds. Reconnect the battery then Plug the power back in and turn the AC back on.
I was told this by a long time RV Service Manager and it acts as a "reset". It has worked for me.

I was in the AC business for 40 years,,,,,so my experience in what you're saying is that IF the fan runs when you have it on "Auto"......zero in on the AC package itself. It's getting electricity,,,,,,so I've found many a capacitor causing the problem you're describing.

"Pulled fuses and they look fine. "

Fuses are for 12VDC items. Air conditioner is a 110VAC appliance. You need to find and check the Circuit Breaker that controls your air conditioner. Once you figure out which is the correct circuit breaker, switch if off (it may not be obvious the it's been tripped). Then switch it back on.
