Norcold N8X Not Cooling
This is more of a journey in my steps, and a general How Did They Miss This???
We just took delivery of our 22 White Hawk 29BH, absolutely love it, but finding the little things that need to be fixed. Leaving on Friday for a 4 day trip, turned on the fridge (AC) Wednesday morning, and 12 hours later it was still hot. No flashing error codes, everything looked to be working. Switch over to propane, maybe it is a failure in the AC system. Propane fired up for its first run, and ran all night. 12 hours later, fridge is still hot.
I open the maintenance panel and can tell that the unit is running, the elements are hot, and the cubby is hot. So bad air flow? I have a small cordless fan I put into the cubby to circulate air. Looking up into the cubby I see no other fans, but nothing looks to be blocking air flow. Start thinking that possibly a hornets nest was built in the 3 weeks we've owned it and is blocking to upper exhaust.
But guess what I dont have! A roof top exhaust vent. It is a gas/electric fridge, so it needs to vent. I call Jayco, and get a copy of the roof schematics, and sure enough, there is supposed to be a roof vent for the fridge. So now we get to go camping in our brand new, very expensive TT, and no fridge...
If you have any issues with your new trailer and the fridge not cooling, take a few steps back and look up, make sure you have a roof vent. By the schematics it should be about 12x24 in, kind of hard to miss unless you work on the assembly line.
