Default Air Conditioner won't work

I'm working on our HiLo that hasn't been used for quite a few years. Should the air conditioner work if the camper is plugged in at home? The fans work but not the air conditioner.

Yes, the AC should work.

After you raised the top, did you plug the umbilical cord in for the ac. Mine plugs in behind the cabinet in the bathroom and I think some plug in from the outside. Depends on year and model

It will only work if Shore power cable is plugged into a RV 30 amp service. It won't work using a 15 amp (Home) / 30 amp RV plug adapter.

I should clarify my last post on this topic.
In my experience, when the H-Lo is connected to a standard 15 amp/120v shore power service, only the fan component of the A/C unit will run, but not the compressor. The A/C compressor requires a 20 amp service, at minimum, to get this running.
If the Hi-Lo 30 amp shore cable is plugged into an extension cord, assure it is a high gauge (12 gauge) extension cord.
