It's in an RV. It's the same on LP or 110v

Hi,

Thank you for the response.

Do you get any type of flashing lights for codes?

If no, then yes, the issue is the control board.

I hope this helps you.

You mentioned the coil was replaced, expansion valve needs to be replaced at the same time, did you do that.

Coil came as a complete unit from manufacturer, it's an absorption unit
