Duo Therm Penguin model 610115.311 AC unit no-power

I have two Duo Therm Penguin model 610115.311 ac unit on a 1992 RV. We accidentally ran 220volt to the RV, the AC unit did work but now they act as if their isnt any power getting to them. The breaker is ok and has power going out to them. Is there something that i may have fried down stream? Or is there a fuse or something on the roof. These units are controlled separately from a wall mounted thermostat. Thank you.

I have duo therm rooftop Ac unit, was working fine and just went out. Seems like it is not getting power, I checked breaker and fuses. Still not working. What do i do next ?


First of all are you plugged in at a rv park or home? Had ours do that as well, found the electrical source in rv park was defective. Caused our AC unit to cut in and out then wouldn't run at all. Moved to a new location and the ac was fine.

Dometer 3105457. how big of generator for the air


If it is a normal AC for RV then I would suggest something over 4000 watts, the AC's have a very high start amps.

You would really need to know how many amps the unit draws or is rated to draw when looking for a generator. Too small of a generator and it won't work, plus you could damage the generator and the AC unit. I would call an RV store and ask them as that is something simple for them to answer.

I HAVE DOMETIC DUO-THERM PENGUIN ROOF AIR CONDITIONING ON RV. THE UNIT WILL RUN WHEN PLUGGED INTO ELECTRICITY BUT WHEN GENERATOR POWERED THE AC UNIT KILLS THE GENERATOR ENGINE. WHAT COULD IT BE?


What size & type generator? On start up the AC unit can draw as much as 17-18 amps in some cases, and if your generator is not designed for a quick draw like that it will die.

Have a duo therm ac and the low ac and low fan not work -


Thermostat on wall, or manual controls at AC? Did it work for you on low before now? Reason I ask, is that normally they are only a 2 speed fan ( low and high) so if it's a wall thermostat and has been changed from original, perhaps it the way the thermostat is wired.

I have a 2005 Pilgram 27 foot 5th wheel. My Duo Therm AC unit makes a ticking sound from the ac unit itself when it's not running. Shutting off the Duo Therm analog thermostat does not stop the ticking...


It's obviously on the 12voltDC circuit of the AC unit. Sounds like thermostat, or a relay in control box is faulty or bad connection. If you remove cover on ceiling assy., you should be able to hear it in the control box. There should be a model number on the ceiling assy., get back to me with that number and I can better pinpoint which relay. Also, try moving all thermostat buttons and temperature controls back and forth quickly to see if it may clean off a dirty circuit in thermostat as well. Make sure your AC hydro breaker is off when working with ceiling assy. just to be safe.

Penguin Duo therm AC bogs


Try replacing the wall thermostat with an electronic unit. It sounds like it is short cycling. If there is not at least 5 min delay before trying to restart the compressor this is what happens. Most electronic thermostats have a delay feature built in to solve this problem.
