RE: Electrical Issues

Cavie, no. I could not find any fuses that were labeled reverse polarity. There are two that had been labeled LP and WP. I assumed the WP was for the water pump and could not think of what LP meant. However, I did check all fuses on the panel as well as the fuses on the converter. Could those be the polarity fuses? I hooked my car up to the batteries to let them charge a little so I can charge my phone, etc. The converter is now running as well as the lights, outlets, etc. Guess that wasn't the issue. A camper repair gentleman is supposed to be coming by tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully he has some good news. Again, thank you all for the help. Roy

RE: Electrical Issues

Quick update: I have power going into the converter and no power leaving the converter. Neither fuse on the converter were blown. Which leads me to believe something internal on the converter is fried or blown. Thank you all again for your help. Roy

RE: Electrical Issues

Cavie, Thank you for the quick response. I guess I should have been a little more specific in my original post. Apoligies. My camper runs on a 50 amp system. It's a 37 foot Sandpiper. The voltage read 238 at the hook up and 237 across the two main circuit breakers. This is where I get lost. I'm not sure how to check output voltage... Voltage across the converter circuit breaker to ground read 118. There is no fuse labeled for converter or inverter. I may be doing something wrong or backwards, I am not electricity savvy. I'm assuming that the fridge, microwave and TV are all connected through the 30 amp system as they are still operational.

Electrical Issues

Hello all, So last Tuesday there was an electrical storm that hit our campground. A lightning bolt struck a tree about 25 feet from my camper and sent a power surge to multiple campers around me. (None of my circuit breakers had been tripped) When I got home from work that night my thermostat gave an E1 code for zone 1 and zone 2 would turn on; however, once the compressor turned on zone 2 would quit. After resetting all the breakers and checking all fuses, zone 1 was non longer communicating with the thermostat. Now just yesterday the lights would not turn on in the camper. After doing some research I learned that the lights are powered by the batteries, I think, so I checked the voltage on both batteries today and they are reading at 5.6 volts. If I'm reading about inverters and converters correctly, I think the converter is shot from the power surge??? Would this also affect the AC units as well??? Any advice or help is greatly appreciated as I am really new to the camp life. Thanks all. Roy
