Thanks Larry,


Guess I'm repeating what you said. I'm new here and just replied to the email I got and didn't read back up the thread. After reading Rodz's experience, I did go out to my TT this afternoon and run through my circuits, checking the GFI too. Mine was wired correctly, but a poor job marking the DC side of the breaker box. Took a few pics of the box so I can blow them up and keep in the TT when the power is out and I need to figure out what is where and don't want to lay on the floor with a flash light or phone trying to figure it out.



This is my first foray into a breaker box with both AC and DC. Where I come from this is 100% against code. I'll also pick up some large sized blade fuses to keep aboard. I only have the minis and AGC glass auto fuses on hand.

New AC unit installed yesterday. I'm surprised how easy it was for them to swap it out. Also got a bump to 15k BTU from 13.5K so that was nice!

No other issues, power all good. He said these things have been dropping like flies all summer.

Thanks again for everyone's input and assistance with troubleshooting! I hope I can repay the favor someday.

Returning to explain your fix is the beginning of repaying the favor. Thanks.

The only real hard part is getting it onto the roof.

He literally put it on his shoulder, climbed up a ladder onto the roof and was done in minutes!
