The A/C goes into de-iceing mode. You may hear the fan speed up and/or slow down. Nothing to worry about. We have a 325 and experience the same conditions.

I think that it also could be the power in the RV park is overloaded. We experienced that one 4th of july.

I was thinking that, I was hoping not since its s new 50 amp service in federal park. But you never know. Park only has about 15 campers.

I have never heard of an A/C going into a deicing mode. If you are running your a/c and your evaporator coil freezes up you have a problem either you are low on Freon or you have a plugged air filter or a dirty condenser coil or your coil is blocking the air and not exchanging the Freon from liquid to a gas at the expansion valve. Was in the HVAC business for 25 years and have never heard or seen that except on a heat pump. That is news to me........ But then I have not worked since 1994...

Ya know I've had the exact same issue with our front unit. Its so brief it can't be a power issue or a machine operation. I'm thinking the thermostat sends an error signal of "reached set point" and then reverses itself. Nothing else makes sense. I've eyeballed the voltage during these sessions and it hasn't moved.

Vince, glad I'm not hearing things. What have you done with yours or are you going to do anything? Hate to leave at dealer since it doesn't happen all the time. Dealer would have to have tech set inside for hours. Think ill be calling PT on Thursday

I'll post anything else I see or hear on this thread. Worst case I hope I'll nee to change the Dometic thermostat. Hate to do even, that so I'll keep an eye on it. So far there's no harm done. I note the wires to the thermo are prob a 22 gauge, ie: tiny. Therefore there must be a matching control CB in the roof a/c which controls the motors up there. It could be either place. Maybe your call will yield something new.
