Are you sure you used the right white wire?

I don't understand how EasyStart could screw up the modes available on the thermostat. Have you tried removing the EasyStart to see how it works without it?

Available modes are set, IIRC, with DIP switches on the AC control board. By any chance did you disturb one or more of them while manipulating wiring, etc.? Probably not since the control board is in the lower unit. Do you have the installation manual that shows how the switches should be set? If not you might try to download it to confirm that the unit is still configured properly.

That is my issue. I don't know it would affect the modes either.
As far as I know I didn't touch anywhere near the dip switches. I could see them and all seem to be on eccept for the one that says zone 2 and the one for humidity control.
Didn't touch anything in the liver unit.
Where would one download the correct settings?

Yes. The one coming through the hole that went to the compressor?

You might pull the interior intake side and make sure the thermostat control wires are connected. I was in there for a different reason and was surprised to see what a mess of wires it was and how flimsy the connections are. I suspect it's the sort of thing that could get disturbed just by pulling on something up top.

I hope that helps!

It's a thought. Right now I'm trying to find the correct model# to see the dip switch configuration. You never know, it doesn't take much to jiggle those things.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Where would one download the correct settings?
Here is one manual:
manuals.adventurerv.net/Dometic-Brisk-Air-Conditioner-3109395.032.pdf


The same location has others, you can look for yours.
http://manuals.adventurerv.net/


It appears the DIP switches are marked. You said you had zones 1 and 4? The zone 4 switch should be off. If it is off and the thermostat is showing you zone 4, I think you have a thermostat problem.

FYI to everyone. I've been in a direct e-mail dialog with George (gandttimes) about his situation. We're looking at the most likely causes first, which are:

1) 6-pin connector (with 12VDC) at the bottom of the board
2) The two RJ-12 connectors at the bottom of the board
3) The DIP switch settings.

#2 has pretty much been eliminated. Working on the other two now.

Hi all. Matteo as usual has been extremely helpful. I am hopeful that one more trip up to check the dip switch settings will do it.
As was noted, I shouldn't have a zone 4 so if that switch got set then possibly others were reset incorrectly by accident. If memory serves,when I was last up there, I remember at least one switch being incorrect.
Will hopefully have a happy ending to this chapter in the am.
Thanks to all fir your interest and help. Much apreciated.
George.

George, hope you figure it out, but when I put my ES in last year I had a similar issue with error code. Found out the dip switch settings were off, got bumped during install. When I set switches accordingly, problem went away. My bet is your issue is dip switch settings. Good Luck

One of the best features of Easy Start is Matteo's response if you have a problem. Very prompt and helpful.

So this morning I double checked the dip switch settings with the information that Matteo sent and they were way off. Corrected them, checked all my wiring one more time and checked the thermostat. At first it was exactly the same. Then I remembered the reset and after that all modes and zone 1 came on.
I forgot about the delay so when I first tried the a/c I got worried but then it started up fine for that start and for 4 more.
Tried it with my Kipor 2000 and fired up right away. All is good.
Thanks all for your interest and suggestions and thanks especially to Matteo for even being there on a Sunday.

We finally got around to installing our EasyStart in Lucy. We have had it for almost a year, but just couldn't seem to get around to taking on the job.

About a week ago, SuEllyn decided that she was going to install the EasyStart. She read this entire thread and all of the appropriate You-Tubes. She also reviewed all of the information available on the Micro-Air Website.

She went up on Lucy's roof, removed the Dometic cover. She photographed the innards of Lucy's air conditioner. She planned her install with all of the information that she had reviewed and gathered the necessary tools to complete the install. She also took pictures of the dip switch setting in the electrical box in case anything got jostled during the install.

She had a couple additional question. She called Micro-Air and spoke with Roger who was very helpful.

She got back up on Lucy's roof yesterday morning and got to work. It took her about three hours (she did take a couple of breaks to cool off). We had also ordered the install kit which we found most helpful in completing the installation. We used every part in it.

SuEllyn double checked all of the wiring connections and reassembled the air conditioner. We re-hooked Lucy to her 30 amp power, and started running the learning cycles. On the fourth cycle we noticed a significant difference on Lucy's volt meter when her air conditioner compressor kicked on. It went from a significant bump to almost none. We have continued using the air conditioner on shore power. Sometime today or tomorrow, we will test the system using our Honda 3000 in the ECO mode.

For anyone following, I wanted to provide the resolution.

Matteo helped me verify the Easy Start was not the issue. The issue ended up being a bad thermasitor. Replaced the thermasistor, reset the thermostat and I was off to the races.

I posted this Here, but wanted to also included it in this thread.

Quote:
I got the unit in the noon mail on Saturday, and had it installed by dinner time on Saturday. We have an older Dometic Penguin 13,5K on our 2006 Safari. The actual install time only took about 15 mins, but I was going extra slow as to be thorough. That included a trip to home depot and the local autoparts store to buy connectors and a grommet. The install kit included a grommet, but it was a little large for the space where I was working and I wanted something smaller. I wanted to use quick disconnects so I could easily remove the unit if I needed to. I used a suitcase connector to connect to 3 way connection to the main white wire to the compressor.

The unit worked no problem on 20 amp shore power from the garage. It did the 5 program starts that way. It did trip the breaker in the garage when I turned the fridge from gas to auto/A/C. (I thought I had turned off the thermostat to go inside but I had not.) Went to open the garage doors and they wouldn't go up. No harm no foul.

However, I couldn't not get the A/C unit to run at 100% efficiency when connected to our 1800W (continuous power rating) Ryobi generator. I will add that we are at almost 5,000', so that 1800W at our house is closer to 1,500W (I have not re-jetted the carb in the ryobi). I want to try again at a lower elevation (we'll have the chance on our cross country trip this summer). The unit would blow cool air, but not COLD like I could get from shore power. However, I'm nor sure if that was because the chiller unit had already been cooled from being connected to shore power. A wee bit disappointed, but it has zero to do with the operation of the 364, just the limitations of our equipment and what we're asking it to do.

It's been cold and rainy here the past two days so I still have some trouble shooting to do. I'd love to try the unit with a Honda 2000 or other generator to see what would happen. I want to hook the trailer up to the ryobi on a warmer day and let it run for a while to see if it makes a difference.

I will tell the forum like I told my wife when I got done with the install, This is THE BEST money we've spent on the trailer since we bought it. I know that any A/C outlet that I can find will cool the trailer. It makes us a lot more versatile.

Will the easy start work with a 1970 style ac unit?
