    Generator dies

    I recently bought a used RV and have been using the generator off and on for a few weeks. The other night, the lights inside the coach began to dim and then the generator stopped running unexpectedly. It would not start again, of course. After some shut eye, I decided to connect a battery jump...

    12v system issues

    Hi, I have a bighorn 3870 fb. I realized that my 12v system will shut down when shore power goes out, so no 12v at all. When I tried to turn on the inverter two error codes came up. Both indicated no battery or low battery. My batteries are both at 13.5 and 13.7. Between the batteries and the...

    Anyone installed an electrical cable hatch/port?

    Wondering if anyone has installed something like this cable hatch in a kodiak cub? I'm considering installing one on the driver's side that would enter under the lower bunk bed in the back. I think there are metal sections of the frame and I can't find any info on where those might be located or...

    Winnebago VISTA 30 or 50-amp?

    I am buying a 30-foot Vista that normally has 30-amp service. However, this coach has 2 roof a/c's and 50-amp service. Is that unusual when the brochure says that 50-amp is not available on the specific model? Is the internal wiring on all Vista's the same, just with different line-in service...

    Electrical issues.

    I am having an issue with my camper that we rent out. The tenant woke up Saturday morning without any power. I went out and found that the cord has been previously spliced, but not done properly. It was just twisted together with some electric tape on it. I cut out the bad cord and put a new...

    Electrical Issue

    Hi all, I plugged my 2006 Keystone Montana 5th wheel into a 50 amp service last night, but forgot to flip the breaker. I guess things were running on the battery power for a few minutes before I realized the lights were dim, and the ceiling fan, and fireplace weren't working at all. So I...

    Forest River Hodgepodge solar option

    1 ordered a new 2021 RockWood ultra lite 2882s with 190 watt solar/inverter option. This is what I received. One solar panel with Go power controller matched to a WFCO inverter. The factory chose to leave out cable from inverter to controller. The reason being that the controller is not...

    No power to Furrion stereo

    On the first trip of the season in our Freedom Express 248rbs, I watch the power fade from the stereo and fridge as the battery failed. While plugged into shore power, I bypassed the converter which was apparently the issue. I replaced the converter, bought a new battery and replaced 2 x 40 amp...

    Question Wiring issue for Haloview RD-10 Backup Camera

    We purchased a Haloview RD-10 backup camera and planned to replace one of the running lights with the camera and use the power from the running light to power the camera. All 5 of the running lights are wired in parallel so cutting the + and - lead from the center wire didn't affect the other 4...
