I got my parts after hitting 4 different auto parts places. I will attempt repair after work tonight. I owe everyone big time for their assistance!

The family just called from Stone Mountain and the rear air (the only one working) is no longer blowing cold air. I did notice poor voltage at the park after we arrived. I hope undervoltage didn't damage my only partially working AC! We are not pleased with the Stone Mountain campground for many reasons including unlevel sites, poor voltage, trash, and poor access to the park.

Maybe I need to exorcise my unit from the family of gremlins orginally from Washington State! (And the short lady said "This MH is clean!")

Thanks to all for the assistance.

Thumbs up Good news

Here is the latest news from the Mountain.

Rear AC is fine, they ran it last night all night on low and froze it up. The hour that it was off to rewire the breakers allowed it to melt and all is well.

Yes I said rewire the breakers, Fred replaced the one that was loaded with one of the 40 AMP ones he found. He is holding the other in reserve until he gets home. The one that was dead had FACTORY paint on it. You can do the math. Everything is now working from a 12 volt basis and it looks like smooth saling for the rest of the trip.

Fred, at the least I can help since the conjecture is I left my gremlins at the flying J in Tallahasee

Those gremlins must like Airstreams! I kicked them out and they must have jumped on a neighboring SOB MH since their jacks broke yesterday!

I could not get the unused breaker off since the screw holding it on would not cooperate. The screw was one of the battery isolator screws.

I do have the spare and will work on re-wiring when I get home. The compressor fired up, ran a while, and finally shut down when the right pressure was reached. The front seats also work. The cabling on my front seats was a neat factory job and they were not pinched.

A big thanks to all!

simple check on seats

Fred...I always look at the simple fix first....on the seats there is a plug underneath each one that can get unplugged if snagged or seat is rotated too far...lol...jem

The solution to your problem is under the front swing down panel in front of the MH. There are three automotive type circuit breakers, about eye level just left of the battery isolator. They are small, silver, with wires attached to them. I had this same problem and these breakers were the cause. Also check the wire connectors, sometimes these become loose
