Thermastat. 2014 fr3 we r driving so not hooked up. Dometic. Usually works when we r driving.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It is on and we see a temp. Could it be a fuse?
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician 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
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
We rnt sure where the breakers r for the generator. But generator is working.
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician 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
