Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

RV Roof Top A/C not cooling

Just bought a 30' Holiday Aluma-Lite XL travel traler for temp housing for men working hurricane repairs. I had to run a approx. 150' of heavy gage extension cords (two) from from a nearby house. The A/C seemed to work OK for the first few days. We were getting fluctuations, though, when when people in the house were using electric. After a few days the A/C is not cooling. Everything is running but it does not cool. I checked the coils and everything is clean. We tried running a 6 gauge romex wire direct from the house's breaker box, but it still is not cooling. When the roof cover was removed, I noticed the compressor was very hot and there was no condensation or water dripping like when it was first working.

Try turning the unit off for 24 hours and try again. It's possible that low voltage may be preventing the compressor from starting.

If no luck, the compressor should be checked to see if it's damaged. Also check any start/run capacitors and the controls in general.

I have a 2000 Holiday Aluma Lite Travel Trailer. Having difficulty filling the water tank. There appears to be two places to hook up the hose to fill the tank. Which intake do I hook the hose up to?


There must be a water shut off valve between the tank and the water pump. One of those hook ups will be for city water that goes direct to your tap and the other inlet is to fill the on board tank. Again check for shut off valves.

Portable generator pops breaker when temp is over 75 degrees


I take it you have RV plugged into generator. Hopefully direct with no extension cords. Are you using a 30 to 15 amp adapter to plug into generator? What is the rating of the breaker on the generator that keeps tripping, suspect it's only 15 amp?
