thermostat

Is there anyway to wire a thermostat to run on fan all the time while still having the compressor kick in and cool? Every time my A/C kicks in it wakes me up I figure if the fan is running anyway that that will drown out the compressor kicking in.

My thermostat has an "auto" that just kicks on when the compressor is running and "on" selection for the fan so you can run the fan continously like you're suggesting wiht the AC on. I'm guessing it would depend on how your circuit board is set up.

It does stay on but fan only, no compressor kicks in when temp drops.Dometic thermostat is the brand.

If you have the thermo set to 75* and it's 73* in the trailer and you turn the fan to either high or low, the fan will come on at high or low. Once the temp rises to 75* or higher, the fan will keep running but the compressor should kick on to cool.
How do you know it's not coming on? Just by hearing or actually testing the amp draw?
And there's lots of Dometics. They have the 4 button CCC, 5 button CCC, the new square thermos, new rectangular ones, and many others.

Well we went camping last weekend in the N.C. mountains and the first day the A/C went out,had someone come look at it and they said the compressor is gone,caused by a dirt dobber nest on the fan blade. which caused the fan to wobble not cooling the unit properly.The weather was in the low 80's and at night in the 50's so it was comfortable without A/C. Guess we will be buying a new A/C

Hmmm. Maybe but idk about that.
There's capacitors too.
Does the fan motor run?
