Compressor and fan comes on sometimes whats wrong


You question is confusing. Both need to come on folr the unit to work. Are you saying they come on all by themselves after you turned if off?
Do you have a remote control for the AC?

Coleman mach rv roof ac, the fan comes on but the compressor doesn't, i've replaced all capacitors and stll is not comming on, how do i check voltage to the compressor to maske sure i have pow


At the compressor connectors you have a live and a neutral phase. The live usually goes to a ptc relay starting mechanism which you can test with a meter. If you can disconnect the relay and check the windings of the compressor from one pin to the other two it will tell you if the compressor is open circuit. It is more often than not an overload fault.

The ac trips the breaker in the camper when the compresser comes on


Check that incoming voltage is up to specs at AC unit control box ( 110-120VAC ), and if good, I'd suspect start capacitor for compressor is defective and needs replacing provided compressor is good. Usually a new capacitor is required in most cases. Please don't try changing it yourself if not experienced in that area, as capacitors can give a very high voltage shock, even with power off.. Don't forget to turn breaker off to power source before working on it.
