I have a Dometic RV airconditioner roof mounted,

Your probably looking at the control module number or something in that area. When you have the ceiling assy off as in cleaning filters, look for a sticker directly on the base of the roof unit. Look all around on that base, even behind wiring harness, you should find a model number and serial number.

RV air conditioner. Compressor running, fan stops before cool

The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

Roof top not cooling as it should

The first thing I would do is pull the cover off and use a coil cleaner to clean the condensing coil and the evaporator coil for the inside unit you will have to pull the metal cover off to clean it with a no rinse type coil cleaner. Once you have the cover off on the name plate it will tell you what type of refrigerant to use most likely R-134a or R-22. Most of these are not serviceable without installing a piercing valve. As they do not usually loose freon.

Water coming from ceiling about

Does the unit work other, than the leaking?If it does you need to install a square seal between the ac unit and the roof.You can either buy the seal from Ebay or I would recomend an Rv Repair place.(They Might even be able to install it where the Rv Sits)

I have a travel trailer

If it's leaking inside where filter cover is, then real good chance the drains being plugged is the only problem. If water (condensation) not running off roof when operating in cool mode, then I'd bet drains, which are located under unit on roof, and you should see them sticking down like buttons. They have a hole in side that needs cleaning with a pipe cleaner or similar to open them up. If need be, shut off power to unit and remove top cover on roof unit and look for the drain holes in base, and clean them out. If water comes in while raining, but AC not running, then it's gasket. That is remedied by removing ceiling assembly (just screws) and 4 bolts that pull/hold the upper and lower assemblies together, unplug wiring to upper unit, and simply lift it off, change gasket and re-install. Tighten those 4 bolts equally when gasket is aligned properly over hole, only until gasket is approx 1/2, original thickness. Plug harness back in and your done. (about an hours work.) Only other thing that may be wrong is styrofoam drip tray for cooling unit, under cover on roof may have a crack , allowing condensation to leak in. If that 's the case, you can try to find a sealant compatible with styrofoam to seal those cracks.

Error code of E4 on Dometic HP air conditioner ??

a. Turn the ON/OFF switch to “OFF” position.
b. Simultaneously depress and hold the MODE and ZONE
push-buttons while turning the ON/OFF switch to “ON”.
FF should appear in the LCD display until the MODE
and ZONE push-buttons are released.
c. When a dip switch is turned on or off after initial configu
ration, a system reset will need to be done before the
Comfort Control CenterTM will recognize the updated selection. Try this. This is for the five button thermostat. Did you check the dip switches to be sure the proper ones are turned on? I need to know which stat you have 4 or 5 button. I have trouble shooting for both.
If you notice reset needs to take place after a dip switch is turned on or off. The dip switches are on the circuit board. You need to drop the lower cover. the dip switches will read in this order #1 heat strip/ #2 zone2/#3zone3/ #4 zone4/#5 furnace/#6 differential/#7stag/#8 gen start. Check this out and be careful. Turn off the stat to change dip switches. On will be toward the description. If you don't have remote start gen set the dip should not be on. If you dont have a Zone 3 the dip should not be on, etc.
Any questions feel free to post back

Power to the roof but not working

In my own oppinion I would if it is available, as you do not know if something shorted out..also note that you may have too as updates are constantly done in the RV bussiness..I worked at 2 RV dealerships and there were constant updates especialy Dometic refrigerator and cooling units. Stop at the local Rv shop and see what they have or they may order it for you.

RV AC is working fine,

Normally, the condensate will drain out of the unit onto the roof and off the edge to the ground. Remove your cover inside (probably 2 screws) and tighten the 4 bolts you will find inside. If they are tight, go to your RV supply place and get new roof gasket. Remove the AC and insert the new gasket and resecure the AC to your roof.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

I have a dometic unit

Mold can make you very ill depending on which type of mold it is. Mold forms in dark, wet environments and can be hard to get rid of. Your a/c unit needs taken apart and each piece that has mold will need to be cleaned thoroughly and carefully before re-installation.

What is the EE message on the DuoTherm Comfort

It means that an error has occurred. If you have a 4 button comfort control. Follow these steps to reset:
To initiate a RESET, do the following in the order
1) Turn control on to ensure annunciator data and light are present. If data and light are present, continue to next step. Depress MODE switch to activate annunciator light.
Simultaneously depress the bottom two buttons (temperature UP and DOWN) and hold.
While holding these buttons down, depress the MODE button once and release.
Release the two buttons previously held down. Depress the MODE button once again.
At this time the light should extinguish, and the mode should register “OFF”. If not, repeat these steps.
Retest system ensuring that all functions are present
and operational.

If you have the five button comfort control. Turn the unit off and hold down the mode and zone buttons together. While holding them down, turn the thermostat back on. Hold the buttons down until an FF appears on the screen. Release the buttons and the display should return to normal. If not, try it again.

Rooftop rv air conditioner doesn't work - what can

I'm assuming when you say 'doesn't work' you mean 'nothing comes on,' i.e. the fan or the compressor.

If that's the case I would check for the AC breaker to see if it's tripped. Usually a 'tripped' breaker will look half on and half off, but sometimes it will be completely in the off positiion. Either way - it's usually because of a malfunction of the AC unit, so if that's the problem I would moniter it closely to see if it trips again. If it trips again in the immediate future I would then want to investigate the AC unit for the cause.

Also, some RV's have fuses in the AC circuit - so you could check and see if you have any fuses labled AC or AC control voltage. If so - you can usually - tell by looking whether they are bad or not. If that's not possible try replacing your 'AC labled fuse' with a new one of the same size.

I would also check your power supply (where the power cord to your RV plugs into) to make sure it is providing the proper voltage to your RV. Note: They also have breakers out on the box that you can reset. If they (breakers) appear ok - and you are at a RV park you could have the Park personel - check and to be sure the proper voltage is availible to your RV.

good luck!
