We plugged it in last night around 8-9p and checked it this morning around 8a. The "manual" says 4 hours to cool it down. Maybe we didn't leave it run long enough?

There aren't corner jacks with the camper, to my knowledge. I'm thinking he is going to use a jack to jack up the sides and put blocks under the tires? I'm an idjit about all this and he isn't a complete jack wagon so he might know what he's doing. All I see outside near the thing is one hydrolic jack and of course the tongue jack.

I'm also sensitive to level. I notice since we filled the freshwater tank it's worse since it was leaning towards that side anyway. That's the side with the fridge on it too.

Will it work out of level with the gas? At this point I just want to make sure it's functional. Being out of level is our issue which can be corrected. A burned out fridge unit that needs to be replaced can't be corrected without replacement or repair.

Dag-gum-it Lou, I will now have to spend more money......I didn't know those "top caps" existed.

2 bags of Lynx Levelers can usually do the trick.....some for the tires, some for the stab jacks.

Got the "toppers" as well.

More info...the propane is not hooked up yet. So we just have it plugged in to the electric.

BF went out to the TT this morning and the light was on AUTO but the CHECK light was also on. He turned it off and on again and heard it trying to ignite. Obviously, it wouldn't since there was no lp hooked up.

Does this help?

Is the fridge plugged in? There is a separate plug for the fridge behind the outside vent. Is the breaker for the fridge tripped? If on auto and the check light is on it sound like you do not have AC going to the fridge.

Ahh. Nothing like K.I.S.S.

I am not yet familiar with the hums and sounds of Kamp Kram and didn't notice the absence of the soon-to-be-familiar hum of the converter. It would seem our GFI had tripped at some point during the night which explains why the fridge kept trying to connect to the lp.

I reset the GFI and started everything back up again. Oh and discovered a pesky leak in the kitchen faucet while I was putzing around in there. I did check the bathroom faucet and no leak there!!

See your already figuring out your own problems. Thats the best part! You'll be a "mechanic" in no time.

LOL..It's always a new adventure! I love problem solving.

The leaky spigot was the next issue. BF took it today to the camper store and had to get a whole new faucet. It was only $22 so didn't kill us.

Following my research I think when we get back and have $ we will replace with a traditional faucet from HD or Lowes.

Tonight we will test the gas (sounds like deja vu but we haven't gotten to it yet!) and hopefully the HW and the oven/stove will work!

1st World Camper Problem #71652- The Krapper stinks! Finally found Calgon today and am about to mix up a batch of GeoMethod and flush it.
