RE: 2017 Thor Compass a/c works on generator but not 30 amp

Also if you have a twist-lock cord on the mothorhome, make sure its it is actually turned after the cord is inserted, before tightening the retainer ring. Otherwise the twist lock contacts won't have proper engagement. We have a winner! Since I've lost most of the use of my hands I have not been the one connecting the electricity. There is a slight clockwise twist to secure the power supply cable to the RV. My brother-in-law twisted it in for me and connected the power cable to a 20 amp outlet at the RV barn. It ran for 15 minutes beautifully. I am still taking it to my RV repair shop to get a Maxxair cover and a black tank flush installed. But the mystery of the air conditioner that works on generator but not shore power has been solved. Many thanks to all of you who offered your expertise to get this poor old disabled vet back on the road!

RE: 2017 Thor Compass a/c works on generator but not 30 amp

please inform us what is found as this is intriguing. Thanks WILCO. And I won't do anything unsafe. Heading to trusted RV repair shop next week, then to nearest Thor dealer in New Braunfels if necessary.

RE: 2017 Thor Compass a/c works on generator but not 30 amp

Thanks for all the responses. The a/c works on the propane generator but not 30 amp. Both the 30 amp outlet and the 30 amp cord from the outlet to the rv test out fine. There are no appliances on at the same time except the refrigerator and some lcd lights. We haven't tried the on-demand water heater yet. I will double check the twist connection, though we've had that on the previous two rvs with no problems. Guess I call Thor tomorrow.

Are there any breakers involved in this "shut down"? If so, which breaker? Good question...but no breakers trip. The compressor tries to start, then shuts down. If you try to start it again, the same thing happens. The blower isn't affected.

2017 Thor Compass a/c works on generator but not 30 amp

We downsized from a 34' TT to this little MH due to my disability, and to make travel easier. The 13.5 a/c works great on the propane generator, but shuts down when the compressor tries to kick in. The manual says nothing about this. A trusted technician tested the power outlet on the house and the 30 amp cord, and the problem isn't there. Anybody have an idea what I'm missing?

RE: Lake City, Colorado campgrounds?

Castle Lakes is one of our favorites. It is right on the Alpine Loop on Cinnamon Pass Road. Castle Lakes

RE: Pagosa Springs, CO

We've enjoyed this campground. It's surrounded by national forest and near Weminuche Wilderness, and out of town. It puts us near some nice trails. Sportsman's Campground and Mountain Cabins

RE: Help with attaching water hoses and sewer hoses

Thanks for the helpful suggestions...I knew there would be plenty of good advice here. I also know that campers are some of the most helpful people in the world, and that folks in the campground are willing to pitch in and help a disabled vet the way I was willing to help before this disease struck me down.

Help with attaching water hoses and sewer hoses

I am dealing with grip and arm weakness due to ALS. While I can still walk and travel we'd like to go out west (FHU campsites only), but I don't have enough grip strength to snap the sewer hoses in place, and getting the water hose tight is another issue. I can probably handle the water hose with vise grips and pliers, but does anyone out there have any suggested methods to attach the sewer hose? My wife and I can handle everything else. Since we are in our RV for the next two months while our house is being built, I will have time to practice on this.
