Thanks for the info! You are correct I was running it on shore power and not on the battery. We just got home and plugged it in. I am currently running it in the cool position with the fan on high. I had to get my ladder out and go to the roof to hear if the compressor was kicking on and it is.
I have a thermometer up by a vent and it was reading 72 degrees. I am going to let it run for a half an hour to see if it changes.
I don't have a ladder tall enough to get on the roof to remove the cover off the air conditioner to see what is going on underneath. I will have to borrow one or purchase one.
What would be the next thing to look into? I have the thermostat set correctly, the fan is blowing, and the compressor is coming on (making noise).
Should I look at what is going on under the cover?
Just an update, I let it run for 30 minutes and the air is still warm.
