It sounds like the unit was miswired at the factory, since when the A/C is "off" at the thermostat, there should be no calls for cooling or for the fan to run.
You also stated the most puzzling issue, with the breaker turned "off" the same thing happens. This shouldn't happen at all, when the power breaker is turned off, there should be no power being supplied to the unit and it shouldn't be able to do anything. Very strange indeed, but likely a major error done when the RV was manufactured, or some wiring in the loom has somehow become shorted and is supplying power from another breaker/source.
I think a call to the manufacturer is in order since there is no easy solution aside from possibly rewiring the A/C circuit.
Not sure when your RV was made, but definately time to call the manufacturer and break out the wiring schematic in an attempt to isolate and resolve the problem.
Hope you find this helpful and best regards!

What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.

SOURCE: Circuit breaker location
I have 2004 1/2 700 sportsman that had the same problem. The circuit breaker is in front of the handle bar, under the plastic cover. you will have to remove front luggage rack if you have one. Look at the wire harness and locate a plastic sealed rectangular holder about 3 inches long. It is automaticly reset when it cools down.
I kept having power loss that could be restored by tapping on the plastic holder.
I cut it open and found the connections corroded on the 20 amp circuit breaker inside. Seal plastic up if you cut it open to keep it from shorting out and to keep moisture out.
