    Can't toggle my AC switch to off on my Dometec 2193, if I unplug the AC from the 110 receptacle will it still run on LP or am I missing the obvious.

    Air Cond. needs 120 VAC, either plug in on the site or run a generator.

    Sorry, when I said "AC" I was meaning 120VAC for my refrigerator. The 120 switch will not toggle off so I have just unplugged it from receptacle and switched to propane.

    That's pretty weak is the rocker switch failed. Think about it, the unit may be 14 plus years old, but how many times has it rocked back and fourth in that period of time? Sure, it's kind of exposed to the elements but that switch should not fail in that camper's lifetime!

    True Steve but when I move it to "off" she just pops back on....hence having to unplug 110 ac when switching to propane.

    End of the day, it’s not like the manufacturer took the “highest bidder” in the rocket switch bid. Coincidentally I’ve had more switches go bad in the past 4-5 years on various things from the pressure washer to the little air compressor to what I thought was a pretty good chop saw.
