Husband Knocked Air Conditioner off Roof of RV and Now RV Electric Does Not Work

by Anonymous
(San Bernardino, Ca, USA)

Me and my husband have a 1983 Fleetwood Tioga RV and at first the electrical outlets worked when the generator is on but now we haven't tried the plug yet but our outlets won't work by generator. We have no electricity whatsoever in our RV and the refrigerator is not working either.

But the first two weeks of us owning this used RV my husband forgot to check the clearance and accidently knocked off the whole air-conditioning unit could that be the problem.

One RV owner told us that when that happened, it immediately sent the voltage to the breaker and we probably blew a fuse is this true? Please help we tried everything.

ANSWER: Thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Sorry to hear that you are going through this. Due to the damage that may of been caused to your RV's electrical system when the air conditioner was ripped off the top of your RV, I would not suggest that you try to reset any circuit breakers, run the generator or plug into shore power until you have a Certified RV Technician take a look the damage that has occurred.

If you attempt to do any of the above you could possibly damage the electrical system further or cause an electrical fire.

Sorry that I could not be of more help.
