Customer Question

Our AC just quit working, tried resetting the thermostat amd then we lost the front one too. It's not even showing up as a zone, just the 2 is flashing
JA: Have you checked the Freon level?
Customer: No where would we do that?
JA: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: its a cedar creek fifth wheel, wish I had never bought it.

And "E-1" code is a loss of communication error between the A/C and the thermostat. Most of the time, it is just a problem with some dust or moisture on the cable. Try unplugging the cable from the thermostat first and carefully wiping it down on the contact and then put it back in. They try a reset. If you still have no reading, then do that up at the A/C where the cable plugs into the unit. There should be two as there will be a cable to the other A/C as well. Try that and get back to me if we need to dig deeper into this. All follow ups are included in our fee.
