:welcome: Glad you could join us. I hope you will find the fix for this problem and many others you my have with your RV from one of us happy campers.

Please be a bit more clear about "lockout" What is the indication? And, what model year is your coach? The model year 2015 didn't have a 32H.

If you have your A/C model and SN on hand you can contact Airxcel via emal or phone for assistance:

Phone Number: (316) 832-435

Please keep us up to date. Thanks

Thermostat lockout

Just to clarify, my coach is a 2013 Winnebago Adventurer 32H. When I say lockout, I mean the thermostat controls are frozen. None of the buttons will function. There is a system button, a zone button and a mode button. The display will show the zone (either 1 or 2) and the temperature when the thermostat froze.

I'm having the same problem frozen thermostat on my 2016 holiday rambler vacationer 36db. I've tried everything from battery shut off to taking the fuse out, and still no heat. Thermostat has power but will not do anything no matter what button I push on it just frozen. No shore power and just running the generator.

At one point I pulled the thermostat off the wall and unplugged it to get it to reset. I have the "filter" on it but it still frequently reads "00" but clears out to show the room temperature and the controls work again. I have another new filter if you can't find one to try. PM me and we can talk.

00 lock out

I called RV products 1 316 832 4357, they sent me the choke, no charge, but it did not help.
I contacted Coleman engineering, they do not have a cure for the lockout. They say that remove the cover, remove the fuse for 5 minutes, replace and the thermostat will resume working "For a while". You should look for sources of interference/electrical noise. (LED's, motors, Satellite box, inverter/charger, water pump etc)

According to Coleman the problem was solved by using a 2 wire, twisted pair between the thermostat and the AC/Heat units. This began on 2016 coach installations.

It is a problem, but nothing compared to Swintec slide problems

I have been experiencing the same problem with my RVComfort.xc thermostat and after reading other web forums I discovered that the few florescent fixtures I have seemed to be causing the problem. So now I am trying to locate the noise filter to install so that I can use the florescent fixtures again and still have a operational Thermostat.

I replaced the florescent fixtures with LED ones and problem apparently solved.

My coach has NO florescent fixtures. Mostly halogen. I replaces the bulbs with LED. Had the problem before and still have it, even with the thermostat filter.

To clarify, my thermostat frequently flashes 00 but it clears for a while and I continue to have control over the HVAC systems. While it is locked up I simply need to wait for a little bit, several seconds, and things go back to working again. I chock this problem up to another one of the RV industries poor QC issues.

I'm going on 3 weeks with no A/C or heat, and service shop has no clue. I don't get the 00's, the buttons just dont do anything. They sent 2 new thermostats, 1 to me to try and fix and then another to shop. Now I have to wait another week for a circuit board to come in to try and fix it. Should I try a choke, or change out lights to leds? You would think on a newer coach this would be worked out...

BBA5464 I replaced my Coleman Thermostat but soon after I was again experiencing the same issues. After reading this and other forums I decided to replace the existing original choke
Coleman Air Conditioner 8330-3301 Choke Adapter

and found it here...
Home . Any RV Parts


Now the thermostat is working and it doesn't seem to matter if I turn on the few florescent light fixtures.

This Is obviously an all too common problem that hasn't been diagnosed or solved with any consistency, if at all, by the manufacturer(s) or otherwise. I don't know if it's a circuitry problem, or an interference/wire shielding problem, or what. It's not my job or interest in knowing; I just want it to work (I know! Ya, right, welcome to RV life; I know!). I will say, however, it's not just a fluorescent problem because I've never had any in my coach. I've also tried an electronic in-line filter recommended by someone soon after I started this thread, and it seems at best to reduce the ocurrances but not eliminate them. In any event, I'm very disappointed that the manufacturer(s) haven't solved this by now.
That being said, I have a question for the more technically or specifically controls oriented people out there. The basics of what we're dealing with here is really nothing more than simple HVAC controls, albeit multiple units/zones/functions controlled by one controller (thermostat). But it's still just closing a contact based on a given set point and opening it on another (or so it seems to me). Is there not a comparable controller on the market that will perform the same functions as the RV Comfort controller? Honeywell, Robertshaw, Johnson ...? Maybe someone can guide us on whether or not we're stuck with using this piece of junk controller by RV Comfort or maybe there's something else out there that will do the job as intended. Thanks for the help.

You seem to be in a twilight zone here. This is seeming not to be the RF issue so may of us experience.

I had one of my units quite. I pulled the cover and used the schematic and a meter to do some checking. Before I got too far I noticed that a relay was cooked, burnt at the terminal. I ordered a new one and all went back to normal when installed.

If your thermostat command to run signal is not making it to the units they won't run. That is a no brainer. You need to be certain that the signal is making it to the roof. I suggest doing a continuity test on the wiring harness to the roof. And, be certain that you have 120VAC to the units.

Looking forward to the fix on this one.
