Because 12v doesn't run roof AC. Generator or shore power is what is required.

Or an inverter which requires a big one- 2000 watts and the batteries to run it, which is more than most MHs can handle for any length of time.

So did the old house batteries run the A/C before?
What Make, Model, Year RV do you have?
How long have you had the RV?
