Default Dometic A/C

Hello, I have a problem with my a/c, I accidentally shut the power off then back on and the a/c just stopped working. Are there fuses or circuit breakers that I might check? Where are they located? 1986 PT40. Thanks for any help!

"Short Cycling" trips the internal overload inside the compressor (that is what it is there for). It should work again after the compressor cools down, It can take several hours to cool as the windings inside the compressor have to get down below 100 degrees F. So if it is a 100 degree day you can see how long it may be. You can speed it up by opening up the unit and slowly running cool water over the compressor.

Thanks very much, it is about a 100 degrees outside now. I'll try again tonight.
