Should Fan on Atwood RV Air Conditioner Constantly Run


Your answer mean it does run constantly and people dont mind or it does not? Mine runs constantly and I hate it-ATWOOD says yep that is how it is supposed to work. Operators manual page 13 says you can low, med, high or Auto speed on fan. WELL only one speed and on all the time. Who is telling the truth?

The fan on your Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # AT15028-22 will indeed constantly run. This is actually the case with most trailer/RV AC units. As you mentioned you can change the fan speed down to low to reduce the noise it generates but it will always be running because of where the thermostat sensor is located.

The sensor is positioned on the return air side of the unit, so the fan is needed to suck air through the system so that it passes over the sensor on that return end.

The only option you have to stop this from happening is to install a kill switch in line with the power wire for the fan that you can use to manually turn it off, which I don't really recommend as modifying the system will void its warranty.
