Default 2000 38 lightning ac question

Hey guys, was looking for some insight from the experts! I did a quick search and found nothing. I have a 38 lighting that we bought a few seasons ago and it has what I believe to be factory shore power ac. I have tried to get it to come on a few times when we first got it but never could get to turn on. This is plugged in to shore power with the switch panel on. Is there anothere switch or fuse/relay panel for the ac unit that I am missing? What was the brand of the unit that came in these and is there is a wiring schematic or manual on line that I can access? I have the boat tucked away for the winter at the lake and I will going down in a few weeks to play around and was wanting to take as much info with me when I go. Any advise or direction on this would be awesome. Thanks

Got a multimeter? Plug her in and start checking contacts. Like anything mechanical, don't use it over time, contacts glaze and compressors freeze. I'd check if it's getting power and backtrack from there.

Thats my plan. Just curious if there was another fuse/relay panel tucked away somewhere. A wiring diagram would be nice too if they are availible. Also another question I had is does the ac unit have some short of water indicator swtich that tells it that its getting water from the rear in order to come on? Does anyone know what kind of ac unit it is?

You can try the Fountain website. There are downloadable schematics there - there are also equipment manuals on there, that may help.

Unfortunately, I don't see an AC Manual.

I couldn't find anything on the fountain site either. I'm pretty sure I can figure it out but don't want to tare the boat apart chasing wiring! Haha.
