How do i repair my dometic air con unit on caravan


When you say safety switch do you mean fuse or breaker? If your breaker is popping(110 volt) then if probably is your compressor overloading the system.i would do as advised before and remove shroud(cover on roof) and clean coils or fins with some otc coil cleaner. Ive been in the buisness eight years and only one time have i change a compressor. Most people get a new ac. Sorry for the bad news

I would like to know if my Honda 2kva generator will run my air con dometic roof top B3000


I dont think so as this will be too much for the generator which has only 2 KVA as capacity.
Though the rated power is 2 KVA it will be safe to use it only upto about 1.6KVA.
The AC will require a lot of current on start up than in running and so it might no be good to have it strained.

The refrigerator does not switch to AC power when in the auto mode and the generator is running. It is working fine on LP


If it makes the switch when plugged into AC ok and just not on the generator then there is something coming from the generator interfering with the control. If it will not switch over even on regular AC then the relay board is malfunctioning. You can try tapping on the relay to see if it is stuck. Eric
