My best advice is call a mobile repair vendor. He should check voltage at the pedestal and inside the unit. If you have a voltmeter you could do this yourself. Heck even the CG might have a worker that can do it.

Can you post a picture of that your thermostat looks like? Do you have more than one?

There is enough experienced RV'ers on here we can probably help you if it's something not broke with the actual unit.

I haven't tried closing the door but I have tried turning the working (bedroom) unit off. It still did not make the front unit come on during the day.

I don't think so, they are all set at same temperature and it is my understanding that only 2 units run at once so when one area reaches the desired temp it should cut off and allow the other to run. Problem is the bad one won't run during the heat of the day even if the bedroom one is turns off to allow other to run

To me that's immaterial. I don't make the trucks we use for delivery, but I don't blame Volvo, Freightliner etc when I have to tell my customers I can't delivery their product due to a breakdown.

Jayco decided to use whatever component is on the unit. I'm sure reliability was something they thought about. They bought it from Jayco and Jayco owns making it right.

.
I haven't seen any post where either JAYCO or COLEMAN refused service, or that they were even contacted.

They can't fix it if they don't know it's broke

I think you said it comes on during the day but not very long. How long does it run before it shuts off? If it were a shore power issue it would effect all of them not just one. So it sounds like an outdoor temperature issue to me. Possibly tripping a safety on the unit itself.

It does not come on during the day when it's hot, only in the evening when it starts to cool off.

We will end up taking it in to shop but we are trying to stay in it, enjoying it for the summer and not have to stay at house. I was hoping someone else had this kind of issue and maybe it was something we could address now, while out using it for the summer.

Our '16 Pinnacle FLSA's front unit does lose temp in the afternoons in this weather. But as earlier stated, about 20 degrees is all they can cool. Even residential units struggle when the weather is like it is now in West KY. Grandkids running in and out doesn't help either. Our front unit runs steady until after sunset and then it cycles. I think the unit is fine, doing all it can do, with the high ceilings in the FLSA.

That's a good point. If the AC is running perfectly it will only supply air that is 20 degrees cooler than the temp of the air in the trailer.
