Dometic A/C problem
Went camping 4th of July week at Hanna park in Jacksonville, and when I arrived there, I noticed first that the wheel plastic cap and grease dust cover/cap were missing, and grease was splattered on the wheel. Upon further inspection, the hub and bearings were bad.
Then, I plugged in the power and water, opened the door to run the slides out, and turn on the AC, and the air would not come on. Also, the Concertone would not come on, and the auto-striker for the gas fridge option did not work. Also tried the thermostat on heat, as a test, and no fan power there either. We-(the boss) elected to stay the week anyway, I got the TV sound to work by disconnecting the headphone jack, and we had fans, so we survived the week- shady site at the beach, breeze sometimes.
I found a trailer company that had all I needed to repair the Al Ko bearing problem, so I fixed that at the campground. When I got home, after researching the AC problem, and talking to a few tech people, I ordered a new circuit control board from e bay for 62.00. figuring I'll try that first. After I carefully installed it, with all power off, I turned it all back on, and now the AC works again, avoiding a costly service visit to my local RV repair facility once more!
What was strange to me, is apparently the Concertone and the fridge auto striker are also powered through this control board on the bottom of the AC unit as well. Anyway, everything seems to be fixed now with that repair, and now I am ready for another camping trip that is hopefully trouble free!!!! Wondering if I should get another circuit board as a spare!
