Nothing only knob switch for start and temperature setup
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

It will probably need to be pulled out to check it. Most have a fuse on the back which may have blown. Hopefully, the lower voltage and resulting higher amperage draw didn't hurt the compressor. Once it is removed, it can be tested first to be sure it is o.k. before reinstalling it again. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our fee.

Nop, don work, I Check compressor it's warm and little vibration also radiator warm don't cooling ,only one fuze on cable its ok
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Then it got damaged or else the coolant is gone. Doubtful this is going to be worth fixing, but you can check at a dealer who sells these. Sorry that wasn't good news here.
