a/c went

We were in N.C mountains two weeks ago camping at as soon as we got there while setting up I noticed the A/C was making a wierd warbbleing noise,I let it run for a few minutes to see if by chance it was just unlevel,I finished setting up and leveling and the A/C was still making the noise,I shut it down and called the camp ground office to see if there was an RV a/c man close and they sent one out,well you are not going to believe this but a dirt dobber nest was attached to the fan blade causeing it to warbble, the freon heated up causeing the compressor to fail,all from a little bee.Guess I'm going to buy a new unit and get a cover for the cover.

I hooked up the power wrong on mine and blew the transformer, I feel your pain. Go look at a RV junkyard and see if they have one. I can pick one up in my area for about $300. That's my next investment to have 2 A/C's on the trailer to keep everything cooler.

Thanks so much but I only live two and a half hours away. I talked to him last night and he thinks that some resistor should shut down before the compressor goes bad,he told me to take it to a a real A/C man,he believes that the R/V dude at the campground was just trying to sell me a unit I didn't need.

I can't remember what year yours is, but mine was a 93. Some of the newer ones actually have a fuse up in the tube that goes from the unit into the trailer. There should be some type of protection to help save the unit. I actually had my A/C guy come out and check it and he used a transformer from an ice machine to fix mine, just make sure that he's comfortable with working on an RV system.
