OUR 1995 37 ft Teton Home 5th wheel has been sitting for about 8 yrs unused. when i tried to restart the air conditioning it will not blow any cold air. have voltage and fan running just no cold air.Any ideas on cause and a fix? A repairman will come out and tell me for $90. thanks Mike McCartney
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.

">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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
