Smile No control power to Duro-therm model 610015.306

Hello to everyone,
I'm new to this forum. I've been using it alot since I bought my 1994 Hi-Lo.
I put away my Hilo in Nov. I'm getting it ready for a test camp. And I found no power to my a/c.
I have a Duo-therm roof mount a/c with heat package model #610015.306
I checked my circuit breakers and I have 120 going to the unit. I checked my fuse box under the bed. All 15 amp fuses were good. The unit control panel does not light up. I see that the control panel itself has a fuse in it. I was wondering if there is any other dc fuse I could be overlooking. I don't see a could spot to check for dc power on the ac unit. My next step will be to remove the control panel and check the dc fuse on the control panel.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would be open to it. I am so happy with this purchase. But without this forum I would of had to put out some extra cash. So i wanted everyone to know this forum has been a outstanding resource.

Thanks Bob

Adding to that, the cord for the A/C should be found in a covered hatch on the back wall, the twenty amp socket should be nearby, maybe on the backside of a cabinet. Our 1705T had a very well hidden socket. It drove me nuts trying to find it. Wait, I was already nuts!

Hi Bob,

Welcome to the forum. I have this happen to me all the time. The location of the GFC outlet makes it a probability that each time you try to plug the AC cord into it, you will invariably touch the "test" function on the plugin. You can't see it and after blindly fumbling around and you hit the 'reset' button by accident, the AC should come on.

I want thank everyone for their help. It turns out I had trouble with the control board. I'm sorry it took me so long to respond. But the first few times I tried and had no luck. Thanks for everyone's help
