switch behind the tv

Hi all,
I have a 2017 RESWE. We were just out in Lodi this weekend and our air conditioner did not work. Ninety degree heat and no air. I posted on Facebook that we had no air and someone responded that on his Keystone trailer there is a switch behind the TV that has to be turned on for his air conditioner to work. So I flipped the switch and the air conditioner works! Anyway, what else does this little switch control?
It is located behind the TV and we thought it had something to do with the TV. We took our trailer back to the dealer in 2018 because the air condtioner would not work and it turned out to be faulty wiring behind the refrigerator. We were pretty upset when we thought we were going to take the trailer in again for air condtioning and it turned out to be just a flip of a switch. That's a mighty powerful switch!

Thanks

Welcome to the Forum

On some 30A models the switch will direct the AC voltage to either the roof AC or the microwave. I am not familiar with your specific trailer but I willing to bet that's what it is. Good thing its working if your in Lodi, I'm in Modesto and its going to be very warm this weekend.

The microwave always worked. I thought, after flipping the switch, that using both would trip something. My husband said go ahead, let's test it out. So we had the air going and then started the microwave. They both worked and nothing tripped. It's still a mystery. I have all the written information for the trailer but I don't see anything about this switch.
