Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Just bought a 2006 used RV and the air conditioner was working when I bought it and worked at home on a generator but just went to a camp site and hooked up and it will not work at all. Maintance at the site looked at it and thinks we are getting a short wire somewhere. Is it true that the unit itself has a fuse inside ceiling that I need to check. I noticied that I was getting my battery pulled down when running the generator. Maybe indicator of short wire somewhere?

I have never seen a fuss or circuit breaker in the ceiling of a RV. turn power off or unplug the RV and check all electrical connections to the air conditioner. It may be a lose connection.

Its on a 76 dodge coachman motorhome. Just bought it and went camping. Everything worked great till the second day. All of a sudden the external generator started bucking and shut down. Checked oil and all...


Could be bad compressor but I would change compressor start capacitor first, as these are a more common problem and I've seen many go recently due to hotter than normal temperatures in our area. PLEASE, Make sure someone who knows how to handle a capacitor does the work, as they can give a fatal shock, even with power off, if not handled by someone who is experienced in that area. (technician, or electrician) New capacitors are about $20, and half hour max, to change.

I have a coleman model 8333A8664 a/c unit on a fleetwood camp trailer and was wondering what watt generator would be needed to run it properly?


Because it won't be powering just your AC, I would recommend 5000W. It's that big amp draw when compressor kicks in that will pull it way down, if not strong enough. Take for example the fact that a dedicated 20 amp breaker and cable are the norm for RV's to use for AC now. Double check also that the generator your purchasing will take a momentary surge draw of up to 20+ amps without tripping breaker on generator. I say 20+ because once RV is plugged in or wired to generator, it will be powering any other hydro operated appliances, lights, converter etc that the trailer has on board. I bought a cheapie rated at 4000W, and 3000 running watts, but it kicks out the breaker just trying to start my portable air compressor, rated at 15 amps.

The RV i'm working on has 2 roof units,both start to cool then comp cuts off , there is 1 thermostat with dual zones,its on a 2006 motor home,it dorsn't seem like both would be bad


Can you get 1 to run good at a time, or does same happen when 1 only is run? Some RV's have an energy management system incorporated, that cuts power back to certain appliances when necessary. There were/are some units (RV's) that needed to be plugged in as well as generator running in order to run 2 AC units at same time. Let me know.

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?

Circuit Breaker and Dometic Rooftop RV Air


Its the watts you plug in too like ither 30 watts vs 50 watts. 30 watts will cause your wires to get hot in the unit. just pull down your breaker box and look at those white ground wires.
