AC Problem on my '78 Tradewind
This is my first post here! I just got my 28' Tradewind last week. My wife asked me to sell my motorbike since we still have small kids so I used some of the money and bought my Airstream--something we can all recreate in together.
I jumped into this with both feet, not knowing anything about these trailers (I've always wanted one), and found one close to me in my price range.
Everything seemed to work fine when I got home. I had it plugged into my house outlet so I could get the lights working, etc--take an inventory of what was working.
One night, after using my AC a few times, I turned the AC on while I did some work in the trailer and I saw a spark from inside the unit near the nob and then the unit stopped working.
I had my neighborhood friend / electrician take a look at it and we had a bad breaker in the back. We replaced it, but still get nothing from the AC unit nor the front two outlets near the door (one outlet on either side of the trailer). We tried turning it on again and got another spark and since then, nothing at all.
We tested the capacitor and it's fine. I haven't tested the compressor yet, but we will tonight.
Can anyone tell me what AC unit I've got from looking at this picture:
Any other ideas, if it's not the compressor?
Could it be grounding out?
