If the light in the microwave comes on, you have 110V AC into the RV.

If you turn the Air Conditioiner ON, there may be a delay before it actually starts to operate. This is built into the system.

If when you turn your thermostat to the "FAN - ON" position, and the fan on the Ari Conditioner operates, there is power to the Air Conditioner and that breaker is not tripped.

It may just impatience (LOL - common with new RV owner) and you need to wait for the time delay on the Air Conditioner.

Wow, that blows. I feel for you. It's prolly something really easy and overlooked and should have been addressed by the dealer before delivery. I wouldn't stress because somebody has to be there in the morning that can help. Keep trying to get it going and above all....chill, it's something simple. Rodeo has a really good idea. Let the 'timer' in the A/C compressor time out. It might take 5 mins or so. Just be patient.

X2, if your thermostat is set to auto, ensure you set the temp to a lower setting than ambient air temp or it won't come on until that temp gets above the thermostat setting.

Like any electronic device, the AC can sometimes get "hung" up. Completely remove power, wait 5 minutes and try again. Most units also use 12 volts DC on their control circuits, so check for a blown fuse.

Update, Did have problem with AC. Tech at Lazy Days RV ( where we camped on day of delivery) unable to get AC working, left it there to be fixed on Monday morning. Lucky we live close to Lazy days dealer. Anybody have model a122BH with Cool Cal 20,000 btu and can tell me how well in works and how cool it is inside.

Since you just purchased it, when you pick it up have them go over everything you can think of. GFI's, what breakers are for what, where the fues are, how to drain the water tanks take notes if you must. 24 hotline is nice providing someone picks up the phone.

When we took delivery Sat. The dealer and everyone went home and our a/c didn't work, in Florida that is rough. Called 24 hr service... Recalled... No one answered. God was good and it was a cool night. Still had a great time learning in our new trailer. We are Newbies...

Awww Congrats!!! LOL, I didn't know LazyDays ever closed ~~~ I'm surprised the night folks at the campground couldn't call someone for you.... Although I've never seen them actually "do" anything.... anyways, glad you got a good nights sleep

We have a couple of folks working on getting a Florida FROG chapter going, so stay tuned ~ we had a very nice time at the rally in Kissimmee and are looking forward to the next adventure It would be great to have more local FROG's to camp with
