It is often electricians or a "friend" that did it. That plug does look like 240.
It looks kinda like an old-style dryer outlet, except for that "30A 125V" that's cast into it.

Yeah, it would be good if people would pay attention to what it says right on the outlet! The trouble is that in ordinary house wiring when you are dealing with circuits over 20 A they are almost always 240 V, which only makes sense. The 120 V 30A circuit is almost unique to RVs.

The converter (Intellipower 9260C) is working, Fridge is okay. Only the A/c seems to be a problem. It is an Armstrong 14. The blower runs fine. Just the compressor does not kick on. I believe there is some kind of breaker or resetting switch that protects the compressor. There are some relay capacitors that look burnt. Any ideas?
