Sounds like you are hitting the high limit switch. Are any of your vents closed or blocked?

If they are it causes the furnace to heat to hot which puts it in protection mode

Hope that helps?

Has anyone added the 2nd AC unit after the fact?
Ours is prewired for it but didn't come installed. I'd like to know the right make and model to use....
We just came back from FL and one didn't cut it lol. We've had the same issues here in IN in really hot humid nights so I figure I'll put the 2nd one in and keep all my girls happy.

It is not a problem. The hardest part is getting it up on the roof. Plenty of videos on how it is done. Last I did was a Dometic Brisk Air II. My total cost for the 15K unit inside cover and all was about $775.

Ok so I bought my trailer in October of 15. Had one radio/DVD replaced under warranty. Now the 2nd one is starting to go by losing one side of sound. Any good aftermarket ones out there?

I have searched for aftermarket. There aren't really any good options. The ir66 is the most common and it is riddled with problems. My channel c went out so I moved channel a and b to the same channel and put my outdoor speakers on channel b.

I'm not sure if they all came with the Furrion DV3100 radio/DVD player but does anyone else have issues plugging an iPhone in? My phone goes crazy if I plug it in to the USB port.

U shaped Dinette

Does anyone have a picture of how the cushions are supposed to be laid out on the u shaped dinette to make a bed ? The cushions I have tried several different ways, but still do not fit exactly right. Thanks for your help.

It's not perfect. What we have done is add a mattress pad on top of the cusions so you don't feel the small gaps

I installed a Stromberg Carlson 2" bumper adapter and use a Thule bike rack for 4 bikes. I did also add brackets with grade 8 bolts where the bumper meets the frame to strengthen the bumper. This gives me peace of mind!

Ok here's one that has me puzzled - turn off the LED switch to the awning lights and they don't turn off. Nor do the blue lights in the radio. So I remove the switch and unplug one side of it still doesn't turn off. Flipped every breaker and pulled every fuse in the breaker box and nothing turns them off. I found the one fuze in the awning arm and pulled it and that killed the awning LED but still not the blue speaker lights. Any suggestions to what's wrong would be greatly appreciated!!! Or at least for the moment how to kill the speaker lights.... I assumed bad switch but can't understand why disconnecting the switch wire doesn't kill it?

Were any of these built with HVAC ducts in the bathroom? Ours has none and it's hot in the summer and cold is when the temps start to fall.
