RE: TV or TV antenna or ?? just quit

Thanks for the update!

RE: TV or TV antenna or ?? just quit

Yes, most power supplies for the antennas has a fuse. Located behind the face plate, you must remove it from wall. What button are you pushing for TV? If you have a video switch, some of them must have power. Do you have a 120 volt cord for TV? Try it. Check power supply to charging station. It or the circuit should have fuse. Check by plugging in different device.

RE: Attwod water heater issue

Thanks for the update! Hope it fixes the issue permanently!

RE: Idaho Road Question

cptqueeg: OP asked how the road would be for a forty foot 5er. Any insight for them?

RE: Idaho Road Question

You have to zoom in.

RE: Idaho Road Question

This map shows it as the "Banks Lowman Highway"FS 24 I did many many years ago in small MH. Remember somewhat of many tight corners.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

No, 65 is not reasonable. Being new to rig you will need to get the feel of the unit. You should be looking more in the range of 350-400 miles.

RE: Idaho Road Question

21 is a Idaho highway, 24 is a forest service road. Looking at map, I would not go that way.

RE: Yellowstone in October

Grizzly is not next to the Grizzly/Wolf center. Grizzly is several blocks west of the center. Buffalo Crossing RV park is next to the center.

RE: Tow bar and Braking Assembly

I have an SMI stay-N-Play unit for my auxiliary braking system. There is nothing to remove. You only have to turn on a switch to activate, turn off switch to drive toad. I have used Roadmaster tow bar and brackets on my toads over nearly last twenty years. I have a Stowmaster bar. I would do search on ebay or the like for bar. you may even luck out and find brackets.

RE: breaker keeps blowing

You are overloading the 30 amp. Turn water heater to Propane. Verify 120 volt amperage for "small" refers. Normal refers are LP/electric. 120 volt AC should hold with AC running. Next check for loose connections in 120 volt AV power distribution panel. Make sure you check for melted wiring. Look at the neutrals. Measure your voltage. Lower the voltage the higher the amperage.

RE: need help with electrical

Neil Nitro: The ones under the tongue are normally for protecting the battery feed to converter. This is common place in trailers for fuse or circuit breaker. Op: In your 12 volt DC distribution panel check for any 12 DC voltage with battery disconnected. What color wires are going from the battery to the 12 volt distribution panel? Did you have time to look for make and model of distribution panel? What kind of tow vehicle do you have? I think you are fighting two problems. One is the trailer and one is the tow vehicle.

RE: need help with electrical

Yes, "WNJJ" group 24s are 12 volt batteries. I missed OP posting that.

RE: Attwod water heater issue

Regulator should be preset.

RE: need help with electrical

Check the panel for make and model. I am not sure you have a bad converter. Voltage readings say they could be wired wrong. Look in 12 volt distribution panel and look for fuse marked Bat. Remove it, check each side for DC voltage.

RE: need help with electrical

The amperage of shore power at 30 amp does not mean a thirty amp converter is the size. That is the rating of the power at 120 volts AC. I would check what size the current one is. I would not go anything smaller then a 45 amp. That amperage is the rated output at 12 volts DC.

RE: need help with electrical

Travel trailers in most cases do not have battery switch. The reverse polarity fuses vary per type of converter. A stand alone style have the fuses in the DC end of converter. Converters that are integral to the power distribution panel are located in the 12 volt DC power distribution panel. Next to the 120 volt circuit breakers is a small plate held on by thumb screw. Fuses are behind plate. Some AC units use 12 volts DC for control, so it is possible that is why it doesn't work. Your power problem maybe that the batteries are not wired correctly. Two six volt batteries should be wired in series. The positive of one battery should be connected to negative of the other battery. The positive of second battery goes to DC panel through a fuse or 12 volt circuit breaker. The negative of the second battery should be connected to frame of trailer. I would stay away from using 12 volt DC for the refer. Draws a lot of power at 12 volts. Make of Tow vehicle GM products, you need to look in owner's manual on ho to connect charge circuit to trailer connector.

RE: need help with motor size

I am guessing OP is looking at older 360 Ford. I had a older class C with a Chev 350. It did alright, but as we hit the road more with more cargo it was a little week. I am sure you must be on a budget. I would be looking for something a little newer with a four speed transmission in either GM or Ford chassis. TBI (throttle body injection) would be more efficient in fuel mileage.

RE: Hot water heater troubles.

I would not run out and by new circuit board without doing some testing. If you decide to replace the circuit board, I would suggest a Dinosaur Electronics version.

RE: Hot water heater troubles.

Make sure the ECO and thermostat are tight to the tank. It is possible that the ECO is tripping out and not the thermostat. There is also a thermal fuse under a piece of tubing adjacent to the ECO. make sure the connections are clean and tight.
