  My roof top has run flawless and yesterday I plugged into shore power and it blows hot air, checked the fuses

  nothing blown, anyone have a clue as to what went wrong? Maybe Nick could tune in.

Call Camping World and call the mfr for sure.  Even a simple thermostat connection could do that.  There is a junction where you jumper and it eliminates all the other stuff and engages the compressor.  Do you hear/feel the compressor cut in and out as you cycle the thermo from hot to cold on the temp dial.  Get your model and serial number info handy.

Good luck,

turn it on and let it run for a minute. then place your hand on the compressor. if it is too hot to rest your hand on the compressor is locked. if it is still cool, then it is most likely a control problem, as in thermostat or relay or some such thing. another way to do it would be to monitor the voltage. turn it on fan only, note the voltage, then turn it to cool and see if the voltage drops or not. start with the easy stuff.

Some are called, some are sent, some just got up and went.
