clicking sound could be thermal overload on the compressor. If the compressor has gone out the unit will not cool the clicking sound is possibly the compressor trying to reset but if the compressor has "gone to ground" (winding burnt out) you will need to have the compressor replaced. Good luck on your repairs hope this helped some

SOURCE: Front AC unit will not turn on
The clicking tells me the AC(hydro) power has been turned off to it. Check all breakers, and make sure if you have another switch on wall, to change from front, to back, or to both, that it is in proper position.

There are several models out there. Here are a couple of manuals with wiring diagrams that I believe will help you regardless of the model number. However, if they are unable to help you, let me know the exact model number and we'll search for the wiring diagram. :-)

Usually just listening closely will give you a rough idea where to look for problem. When you have the fan on and switch to cool, (with temperature turned down low obviously) do you hear any type of "moaning" sounds from AC unit, or see lights in RV dim slightly indicating that compressor is trying to engage? Is the breaker tripping when compressor tries to engage? Do you hear a "click" from AC unit when switched to cool? If none of that happens, then I'd start thinking thermostat, or compressor relay. Normally if it's a faulty capacitor, the compressor will try to engage but will make a "moaning sound" and usually trip the breaker due to excess current draw. Someone experience in electrical should be able to test relays etc, but whoever does work on it, should be aware that those capacitors, as well as hydro in general are very dangerous to work with. The ("zap",- Shock) that you can experience from a capacitor or hydro, can be fatal.
