Most probably your unit has no more refrigerant charge. Being unused for 8 yrs will cause leaks on seals.Locate for the system sight glass, run your a/c,if you don't notice any bubbles nor liquid appear on the sight glass your unit runs out of refrigerant.Hope some of this information helps you.

Can I pull an 18 foot 1973 Aljo 5th wheel travel trailer with my 2004 Mazda MPV van? My van can pull up to 3500 pounds.


">No, a 5th wheel trailer requires a 5th wheel hitch which is bed mounted, not bumper mounted which is what you have or frame mounted in your case, either way the van cannot tow a 5th wheel due to its design the 5th wheel hitch has no where to be located except in a bed of a truck.

I need to know how many ton air condenser I need for my house?


400 cfm per ton
1 cfm per square foot

Only calculate living space in home, bedrooms, living area, etc. Do not count hallways, interior closets, etc. Only measure the garage if you are trying to condition that space as well.

If you have an "actual" 7000 sq. ft. home, you will need 17.5 tons.

This is usually achieved with multiple units for a residential building.

Hope this helps!

I turn it on (montana 5th wheel) and it sounds like it's tryin to kick in the compresor that is and the fan comes on and the compressor tries to kick in about every 30 seconds but cannot?? it's about 4...


The compressor is trying to start and cannot because it is broken inside and will need to be replaced. The compressor can be replaced by most anyone that is familiar with working on home central air conditioning units. I have replaced a few compressors for units like yours. Have a professional check it out. It could just be the start capacitor, but usually it is not.

Coleman TSR Mach air conditioning roof mount trips breaker


The simplest answere to start is it' looks like the compressor is the ssue." Either it has siezed"or in my oppinion needs a proper household power to activate it. If the voltage drop on these units is a little below a certain value, it will not start and will burn out. Thats why i suggest a household power be tried first. I feel your generator is a little undersized. You will only know once you have applied household power.

Roof AC on 5th wheeler is not working


CHECK FOR ELECTRICAL POWER @ l1 CONNECTION,IF YOU HAVE NO POWER CHCK THE FUSE,AND INSURE THE THERMOSTAT IS SET FOR COOLING OPERATION. IF THE UNIT HAS LEAKED FREON, A LOW PRESSURE SWITCH HAS OPENED, PREVENTING THE UNIT FROM OPERATING TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO THE COMPRESSOR. DO YOU HAVE A MANIFOLD GAUGE, AND ARE YOU CERTIFIED TO WORK WITH REFRIGERANTS? IF YOU ARE IN COMPLIANCE,HAVE TOOLS AND TEST EQUIPMENT WE CAN PROCEED FURTHER.

Locating owners manual for 5th wheel & factory appliances


You'll probably find that the actual owners manual for the trailer is just a generic one, that covers many trailers in the fleetwood line-up. I'm guessing your worried about the AC, microwave, water heater & fridge. Get make & model numbers off them & I'll see what I can come up with. As far as items in the trailer other than that or questions, feel free to get back to me with any, and I should be able to explain most if not all. I'll also keep my eyes open at work (RV dealership) for a manual of your year.

Check low voltage or your control voltage. If your transformer is bad this will cause the unit not to work.

Air conditioning won't work. Maybe no ground


Open your elctrical panel on your fifth wheel and make sure the wire terminals are tight comming in from the electrical power cord.

There could also be a issue with your power converter. Try turning your circuit breakers off and back on.
