would it matter if I just run it on AC for this pipe to have an effect on its operation while on AC? Ive never ran it on LP yet since Ive had it (4months now).

Just as an update on this. I went inside the TT the other day and noticed that there is some delamination between the white "celing paper" and the board that it is glued to. Its about a 8" square piece on the left side of the AC unit and I can push up on it and feel the small gaps forming. Ther exterior roof itself is solid so Im thinking just cosmetic issue for now. I blame myself completly for not dealing with this leak before winter..oh well. I went to CW yesterday and picked up a new AC unit foam seal ($25) and a tube of Dicore lap sealant to re-coat all my vents etc.. I will let it dry out after removing the AC unit but just waiting on a dry weekend to do this now. On a plus, I did get my JOF decal in the mail yesterday along with a $25 coupon off a goodsam park for renewing my membership another year. I'll try to get some pics up soon of what Im dealing with and my repairs.

I am guessing all of your 12VDC items were working ok... All of those things require 12VDC as well as 120VAC... Especially the boards. Was your 12VDC ceiling lamps working ok on the trip. You may have sparked the battery terminals or hooked them in reverse order before the trip and blown a couple of 12VDC fuses...

The converter/charger provides 12VDC to all of your circuits when connected to shore power as well as charging the trailer battery. It almost sounds like you may be missing 12VDC at the circuit boards for the fridge or even for the propane controls.

If you did hook up your batteries prior to going on the trip please check the battery case and find the word "NEG" or the minus symbol "-" stamped into the plastic case and make sure the battery cable connected to that terminal is the one that goes to the trailer frame ground just inches away from the battery.

Just a thought...

If I recall the fridge was working (pre cool down) before we left but the problem started at the site, battery was never disonnected and nvere had an issue with 12v lights/accessories. I was able to locate the svc manual and "jump" or "reset" the control board and has worked fine over the last few trips out before winter storage. Im going to try to pull the TT out to the driveway next weekend and tackle the leaky AC.
