I had the same problem with my MH. Turned out to be a faulty receptacle where the shore power plugged into.

That is scary stuff,,, could have been a fire !!!
Maybe workers need more time to do there jobs !!!

What is the charge state of your batteries??

Wig. What was the charge state of your batteries when the A/C refused to work? I have had a similar situation with my 283TS and I am currently replacing the factory WFCO unit with a Progressive Dynamics Inteli-power RV Converter PD9260. My A/C would not work on shore power unless the batteries had a charge. The RV dealer said that on of the batteries must have had a BAD cell but when I replaced the batteries, three days later it happened again. The WFCO charger was NOT keeping my batteries charged. I might have to replace the Transfer Switch. Kim

This is the first really hot day since my last post on this thread. Same thing happened: the ac ran fine set at 78 this am . About 3 this pm I noticed it had gotten hot in rv. Looked at microwave: no 120v. Turned on genny, ac started right up! (Whew). Now what do I do? Call Dalton's, who found loose wire in wall where 120 plugs into coach, and supposedly fixed the problem? Could it be the transfer switch also? FR is going to reimburse $ for last repair, and we are squeeking under warranty again( ends in a few weeks). The frustrating saga continues. Any thoughts appreciated.

Found the problem: tripped breaker at the park's panel- not my rig! I should have checked the surge protector first. Thanks.
