Ac

Mine did same thing on my airstream turned out to be some little part that was about $120 I could hear water gurgling in the inside and it was not draining out properly - I question if it got something wet. If I turned system off few hours it would cool a few min then only fan would blow. I live in a rural area and service guy had to come twice. My bill was about 480 total but about 100 was for trip. Charge the line had to be blown out and the part replaced. Donít panic I donít think itís the whole unit. Good luck


Short something out

Or thermostat is not calling for cooling. I had a busted thermostat on my Coleman Mach 8 with that same symptom. Was able to jumper the thermostat contacts to get it to kick on, which gave me my diagnosis.

It wasn't the capacitor!

Before buying a new capacitor, I called a local AC tech--not a specialist in RVs. He climbed on roof, removed cover and at once discovered a pin size hole in a copper line from which Freon had escaped. Welded hole, attached valve and refilled Freon.

total cost: $100. Of course that's because I'm parked in Zapata, TX where prices for all labor are lower.

Thanks to all of you who responded!!
