a/c won't start

the a/c on my 01, 30 classic/so won't start. I do not have an owners manual , so i'm stuck, and it's hot in here! I need to know the location of the fuse/breaker box or anything else that will help me solve the problem. The a/c unit is a Penguin with a comfort control unit for the programming. Can anyone point me in the right area to trouble shoot my problem?

The fuse box should be in the roadside rear overhead cabinet. Not at all unusual to pop a breaker in hot weather, especially if AC voltage is a bit low and either the microwave or the electric rod in the water heater happens to be on when the A/C starts up.

You might need to reset the Comfort Control. Hold down the top and bottom buttons while you turn the CC on. Keep holding the buttons down for a few seconds and then release them. This action resynchronizes the A/C and the CC.

There is a substantial delay between selecting A/C on the CC and the A/C actually starting up. This delay is to protect the compressor, but it can really get frustrating when you first hook up and want to get the trailer cooled down in a hurry.

Older units have a switch which lets you run the microwave OR the AC but not both.

I don't know if yours has one too

Breaker boc should be over the bed.. If you have no power to the Comfort control there is also a fuse under the outside shroud

Thanks for the information on the a/c. I found the breaker & fixed the problem.
