Truck Camper AC
« on: June 11, 2018, 07:28:56 PM »
Hello

I am new in the Truck Camper life and I have a problem. I got a Lance Sport Truck Camper 2007... and the AC is not working when I turn the Generator on.The Generator (2500) should have enough power. And I dont see an Inverter in the Camper. Could THAT be the problem?

Welcome to the forum.
Have you tried it when plugged into shore power?

You say you have a inverter. Are you sure?  A INverter converts 12 Volt DC battery power to 110 Volt AC.  A CONverter converts 110 Volt AC shore power to 12 Volt DC power. In a truck camper, I would think you'd have a CONverter.
Some units are set up with a transfer switch which switches from shore power to generator. Do you know if you have one.

No, the lack of an inverter is not the problem.


Questions:
1) with the generator running does anything else which requires the generator, such as 120v outlets, microwave,etc) work?
2) referencing question 1, have they ever worked?
