Scamp 16 - Dometic AC Help

Howdy!
I am new to Scamp trailers. I have admired them for many years! Finally... after years of dreaming and saving, I was blessed with my first scamp trailer a few week ago. I am in Texas and many RV repair shops are not familiar with this brand, I need to replace the AC unit but I am concerned that during the installation they may damage the fiberglass trailer.

Also, I called scamp and they said I can purchase the Dometic unit anywhere here in Texas to avoid high shipping costs.

I would appreciate advice from all of you.

Many thanks,

Elizabeth

Scamp 16 - Dometic AC Help

Elizabeth - The AC on our 2012 Scamp16 died while on a trip. Camping World replaced it in just a few hours. The new Dometic AC works well and there are no leaks. The footprint of the AC is a little different, so I need to clean up some dirt of the roof, but otherwise the folks at Camping World had no problems installing the replacement. I hope that this helps.

I wonder if Casita would be willing to do the install.. they are in Texas and the campers are very similar.

What exactly is the problem with your air conditioner?

It just died - I tried to reset the breakers with no luck. The A.C. is original (2011) to the trailer.

Mine is a 2008 Scamp and it did a similar thing. For me it turned out that my extension cord was not powerful enough. I bought a Camco 30amp extension cord and it turned back on again.

You'll need an adapter 30amp to 15amp to go to your house plug.

If you have a campground nearby, you can use your 30amp trailer plug and plug into the 30 amp receptacle at the campground, no need to get an extension cord...just to test it out.

Oh.. you probably dont need to replace it. likely just needs repair. The starter capacitor is one thing that can go bad. Its easy enough to check, and a cheap part.. but it will cost more to have a certified tech do it. Just tell the tech not to put his own weight on the roof.

I would start here.. https://www.dometic.com/en-us/us/find-a-dealer
