Customer Question
We purchased a 2014 Vista...
We purchased a 2014 Vista in Dec 2013, it has 3000miles on it. The Camping World in Hillsboro OR serviced it last week, assured us the AC was working. My wife is in Pendleton OR, temp is 100. Used the AC for the first time. The air out of the ceiling vent is only slightly cool. She came back this afternoon and the interior was very hot. She is there for 4 more days. What now? Help please!

Hi, my name is ***** ***** you for your question.
Sorry for delay.
Could you please post make and model of ac unit?
Does this have a 30 or 50 amp land line cord?
Are you using any adapters or surge protectors on land line?
Does the ac unit blow hard on high?
You should be able to hear a difference going from low to high settings.
While ac is running do you hear ac compressor cycle on/off?
Its a noticeable difference in noise other than blower speed.
If you have a generator have you tried running Rig on that instead of land line?
If not please give it a try.
Let me know
