Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
I was recently told that my ac compressor had been ruined because the plug that plugs into my generator had the hot and the common swithced. Could this cause damage to the compressor?
As a general rule ,only if your ac was a window unit. aka a 120 volt unit . all other acs use 240 volt. a 120 leg and a 120 2nd leg to equal 240, so there is really no common. what kills acs with a generator is the lack of watts and starting torque. an ac (3 ton) and up needs a generator of 10000 watts minimum to handle starting trque. they also need a hard start kit to boost starting voltage.for god sake someone reply and tell me what a good job i am doing!!!!!!!as in grade the response to your question.

Was running the trailer on a 110 plug adapter the cord fried and would not cool the trailer ,so i went and bought a 30 ft 3 prong rv cord and ,found that i had no recepticle to plug that into so i wired it directly to the 220 out let in my shop .. my question is did that burn up my ac ,it had a funny odor coming from the ac unit and how spendy is it gonna be to repair. brian in henryetta
