Hi. I can help you. The voltage coming into your RV is determined by a few factors including the size of the power cord you use to bring power into your RV and the voltage available at the outlet. A voltage drop is common when there are lots of power draws occurring at the same time as is often the case in hot weather. You could ask your RV park manager to have the voltage checked as it can often be increased at the transformer on the nearby power pole.

That said for outside of your RV, lets go inside. If you are using a number of electrical appliances at once you may be causing the voltage drop. You can go to any home depot or similar store and purchase a voltage meter which will allow you to check and see what impact each item in your RV has on the voltage.

Durotherm Model 57915.331 - not cooling properly

Check the fuses in the rv to make sure you are getting power to the roof unit. If the stat clicks and nothing happens up there you have got a faulty stat, or, worse, a compressor fault.

Duo therm rv airconditioner pulls 17 amps, with compressor running. It cools very well though.

Check incoming voltage first to make sure it's not dropping under load, or low to begin with. Any poor voltage or long runs of extension cords could be causing voltage to drop, thus raising amperage draw.

I have a Carrier RV Air V air conditioner. I turn

Have fan start capacitor checked/replaced by licensed tech, or electrician as they are very dangerous to work with if not experienced and can give a very high voltage shock, that could be fatal. They basically store and increase voltage to higher range for start up of fan and compressor.

My Duo therm fan come on but when try with cool it's shut off the fuse and if turn the fuse back on would come on for a little while and then off again what shuld I do?

First thing to check is incoming voltage. If problem with incoming hydro, either from improper cord attached, or whatever that would cause low voltage to unit, that could be the cause, so if you have a meter, try to check that voltage to your RV is up to spec. Let me know

Rooftop air conditioner kicks on and off when unit is plugged in, even though the thermostat is off,

It sounds as if you have a Thermostat or low voltage wiring problem. If you turn electric off, investigate wires to Thermostat. If the wires are not touching each other, remove thermostat completely cap all wires, turn power back on. If unit doesnt come back on you need a new Thermostat.

My rv air comes on when blower is on low and runs fine and the air is cold,but turn it to high and it buzzes and barely blows,wont turn off unless you throw breaker

your problem is a simple one actually. You don't have enough power available to run your ac on high. If you get a meter to test amperage and voltage you will see that there is a serious drop from what they may advertise and what you actually get. Try to minimize use of other appliances when your AC is on and you should be ok.
