Hi, does the airconditioner use a wall thermostat or are the controls on the ceiling with the ac? Is this a dometic, coleman ect ? Please give me as much information as you can. Are you plugged into shorepower? 30 or 50 amp service,,,,,,,thanks....Michael

Thermastat. 2014 fr3 we r driving so not hooked up. Dometic. Usually works when we r driving.

It is on and we see a temp. Could it be a fuse?
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 2 years ago.
so your driving, and using the generator, go to the generator, and check to make sure the breakers have not tripped, and if the thermostat is showing something it is not a fuse,,,,,,,,,does the front ac work and the other receptacles?

Does the generator need to be on? Front ac works

We rnt sure where the breakers r for the generator. But generator is working.
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 2 years ago.
yes if you are not plugged into shorepower the generator needs to be running to operate the roof airconditioner, the breakers are on the control of the generator, where the switch is

Go back inside and check the breakers on the distrabution panel,,,,,,,,,,,,,from here you will need a volt meter
