Air con not working anymore!

We're on 110v we use the fan on the air con. Not the Ac though! The gf turned the knob the wrong way to ac not fan. Checked the park breaker. Checked the trailer breaker on main panel in trailer. Both were good. Any ideas? Not very happy right now! Fan isn't even turning on.

Check voltage at post to make sure you are getting at least 104v.

Sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere. Could have a little corrosion on one of your plugs caused by overload from the air being turned on. Try removing all your plugs and put back again.

Evereddie wouldn't the ac be on its own circuit? Shouldn't effect the ac circuit?

I don't quite understand your question.

Your whole trailer plugs in using one plug, right? As in, one cord from the trailer to the power post. Are there any adapters involved? Any one of these plugs or outlets could be a weak spot. Clean them or at least move them around a bunch. Sounds for sure like something is causing low voltage.

First thing I would check is the wire connections in the power cables plugs.
Then where the main power lead hooks to the trailer power panel.

I think you may have lost a leg.

WOW only 76V?!?! That is crazy low, I would unplug immediately and get on out of there. They have some serious issues there, do not let there problem screw up your RV.

This is a good reason to buy a surge protector.

So Zwicker, what was the end of the story. For those here and all future readers, it helps to have the final chapter so it can be useful for their own experiences. Hopefully you didn't sustain any damage to your trailer. And for all reading this, it is the exact reason to get a power protection system like the Progressive Dynamics.

Good Camping!

Spending $400-$500 on a quality surge protector should not be given a second thought after spending $20K-$50K on a camper!

My hardwired 30 amp unit costs less than $400.
