Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
I just installed a new 13500 BTU roof A/C on my pre-wired 5th wheel trailer. This is a second air conditioner. When I fired it up, it ran and blew cold air for about 2 minutes and shut down both fan and compressor. The fan will still run in manual. I have got it to run again 2 times with the same results. I took the cover off the unit and the compressor seems hot to me.
You really need an Ammeter to check this problem. Just because it is a brand new unit does not mean that there isn't a problem with it. Is it run off of a wall thermostat or manual controls? The compressor has a thermal overload switch on the top (under the plastic cover) that will take the compressor out of the circuit if it gets too hot. However, if the entire unit is shutting off, there is another problem. Selector Switch? Thermostat? Let me know what kind of controls you have and we can go from there.
