Hello Bill,
No water in the tray, it has been going normally into the aft bathroom.

Alex,
Have you looked at the Compact unit?
Is it full of water with a clogged drain?

I run the forward air conditioning without problem.




As Eric ask, I switch on the Aft Air Conditioning with the
switch in neutral position (neither cold not hot) and right
away the Ground Fault Interrupt (GFI) breaker trip (as well
as the marina).

What does that tell you?

Alexandre,

there is a switch and thermostat by each AC unit. when

the switch is in neutral position does the breaker still

trip? if not does it trip when the switch is in the heat

position?

To discharge the capacitor take a wire with insulated

alligator clips put one clip on the body of the pump or
case

and the other clip to a lug of the capacitor.

Fair winds,

Eric
