I think I have a simple question, I think, and need your collective wisdom: we have a 2011 17B with the Dometic air conditioner option. So this question is directed to those who also have that option.
On our first outing of the year in SittEscape last weekend, I wanted to ensure that all systems were normal. Everything worked fine except, perhaps, the air conditioner.
I tried the air conditioner in relatively cool weather. Yes, the unit turned on but I could not hear the compressor until the temperature dial was turned all the way to the right on the #10. As soon as I backed off in the slightest, the compressor would cycle off. I'm trying to decide whether I have a problem or whether that would be normal, just because the temperature was cool.
I recall last season that I could get the compressor cycle on even at the 3 and 4 level, although admittedly, that was in much warmer weather. Yes, I was plugged into a 30 amp receptacle with nothing else running and everything else seemed okay with the electricity, etc.
Do I need to take my unit to a Dometic service center for a warranty checkup? Or will full functionality return as the weather warms up?
So, you keepers of Escape wisdom, please enlighten me.
