2014 V3895 Entire AC Panel and ACs Off

About 0015 last night out main AC quit and would not come back on. The AC controller also quit and will not come back on. No breakers or fuses are tripped or burned. No joy with shore power or generator. Any ideas?

Quick disconnect wiring under unit came loose and was not "clicked" in? Lift up unit and reseat all wiring coming to AC unit. You can also do the same with the plug in the back of the thermostat. It's just an RJ45 like a computer network cable.

I will give it a shot. I'm curious as to why I lost all power to the entire system. No fuses blown and nothing tripped. Shore power still shows connected per the LMS.

Okay the culprit was the $2 piece of crap telephone connectors on the main ac. Actually they should not have even been installed. There is a pigtail off the main wiring harness that plugs into these connectors and then into the board. We eliminated the connectors and the pigtail and plugged directly into the board.

RJ45 spice extensions same thing I had wrong and why my middle unit went on the blink. It states in the manual to not do that believe it or not haha! Glad you got it fixed and no time loss to the stealer or I mean dealer!

I read that as well. What a joke. The way I see it I just eliminated 4 points of failure.
