I recently purchased a 2020 Jayco 287BHS. I noticed today that the A/C wouldn’t come on until I put the slide room out and turned off when I put the slide back in. This is our first camper with a side slide...is this a normal feature or do I need to take it in to be looked at? I looked through my manual but didn’t see any mention of a cutoff switch or anything.

This is the first I have heard of this problem. There is no reason for the A/C to do that unless the A/C is directly over roof when it is in and for some reason they have a interlock system installed.

As an option it didn’t seem to make sense. Guess I have a couple of phone calls to make tomorrow.

NOT NORMAL. There is no reason for the slide room to have anything to do with a roof top AC unit. Slides have 12 volt wiring that is junctioned under the slide room. It is probably the wiring that is being stretched and then relaxed. Killing power to the roof AC either 12 volts or 120 volts. Did the AC work when you picked up the unit and the slide was extended?

Listen to Doug. My AC A/Cs are all controlled by DC.

Looking at the floor plan the a/c is directly about the slide when in. Also is the thermostat accessible when slide is in? Be strange for it not to be but they do strange things on rv’s.

The A/C still works...just not when the slide room is in.

The thermostat is completely accessible with the slide in.

Waiting to hear back from Jayco Customer Service.
