Dometic Heating & Cooling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Our brand new Dometic ac unit or blower does not turn on. I flipped the breaker even though it wasn't tripped. The wires inside the inside the vent in the ceiling are all plugged in. What now?
It sounds like your Dometic unit is not getting power despite the breaker being on. Unless the Dometic unit has an internal fuse to check, I would get out a volt/ohm meter and check to see:
1. Is there power coming out of the breaker that goes to the ac unit?
2. Is there power at the terminals of the ac unit? (You can sometimes remove a ceiling cover to access the contacts on the on off switch.
Lastly is your RV hooked up to full power with two 110 volts on both legs beside the neutral and ground wire? If you are only feeding your RV with a standard 110 volt extension cord and using an adapter, that can mean half the circuits in your RV are energized while the other half 110 volt leg is not. You must energize the second leg by using a full 30 amp or 50 amp dual power cord.
RV's are funny. They require two 110 volt legs with a neutral and a ground. The two 110 volt legs are both of the same phase. There is no 220 volts between the two hot legs as they are in phase. A volt meter between the when hot would read zero volts, while each hot leg to neutral would read 110 volts.
Hope this helps.

Dometic rooftop a/c compressor will not shut off.
I had the exact same problem, duo-therm AC unit on my RV the compressor ran continuosly, had to shut it off at the breaker. I too replaced the relay board thinking it was a stuck relay but the problem was still there. Good news is I found the problem. I took the cover off the thermostat panel inside the coach and found the thermostat wire marked "cool", was loose. I tightened this connection and the compressor shut down. Looks like the compressor and fan use seperated thermostat wires. Easy fix, and now I have a spare relay board that I didnt end up needing in the first place :-) Solution= check your thermostat connections at the terminal block inside your thermostat panel, they are probably loose.
