xlr 24 switches control?

Does anyone know where I can go to find out what each switch does? I would think its obvious and a few are but a few are still a mystery to me.

I also purchased the extreme package. Is there a place that you turn on tank heaters or do they just heat when the furnace runs?

Sorry, had a horrible walk through experience and could barely understand the guy. The whole dealership experience was bad so I am just trying to find out these things on my own and I am a real newbie at this stuff. Already having issues with AC tripping the breaker.

I don't want to sound too negative. We have been searching for months and I am still just really pleased with the floor plan and how well thought it is.

Hi Sponge, I am new to the XLR 24 also, and I will tell you that I figured a lot of it out on my own and after I figured out what the switches do I marked them. One thing with the air, do you have enough power going to your Toy Hauler? Are you plugged into a 10 amp circuit?

Thanks for the reply! Yeah I think so. I am at a campsite with I believe 50amp service. I plugged in using the standard power cord that came with it (no adapter). It was fine for the first 2 days. We came back from canoeing and the whole camper was dead with the breaker tripped. Flipped that and things worked again but it happened a second time later so I stopped running air to try and research. It is really hot so it has been coming on a lot.

I really wish companies could make model specific manuals. The generic one included has been a little helpful but not entirely.

There was an issue when I picked up the camper with the water supply and the dealership worked on that. I assume city water connection is where the water should be hooked up if you are using water provided on your site. I have to hook it to the other one that I assume is for filling when you want to use your water pump. I am guessing they switched them around in fixing it. As long as i plug the hose into the lower one it works fine without the water pump on.

Hey sponge, I have the extreme weather package on the 27 hfs which may be different but here is the layout of my switches. On the wall in the galley / dinning two switches outside porch light and inside ceiling lights. Down low is the generator start and 12 volt cut off. Next to the stove top is the power switch for the mobile fuel station if equipped. Bathroom wall two switches one for the light one for the heated tanks. Garage area 4 switches 1 ceiling light 2 ceiling vent fan 3 outside porch light 4 outside rear spotlights If you have the mobile fuel station there is another switch outside next to the fuel gauge one quick tap turns on the fuel pump two quick tap turns it off Hope this gets ya heading in the right direction. These forums saved my bacon more then once and I believe one of my first questions was the switches too

And of course. One more switch. Outside at the water heater. You can run that on propane or electric. The electric side takes a bit longer to heat up though. I use the gas for the initial warm up and showers and the electric to maintain. Making sure there is water in the heater I just leave the electric on and turn the gas on from inside when needed Also I didn't mention the inside water heater and pump switches as they were marked in my unit

Thanks so much rfk! My layout is a bit different. There are 3 switches when you come in, one of which I know is ceiling lights. Around the corner by the water pump and heater there are 3 more switches. I know one is the bright halogens on the rear. I think I have a good understanding of the outside switch.

Glad to help. Wish I could point you to a better resource for an electrical layout.

I did not, unfortunately. I am going out again this weekend and will try and figure it out again. There are 3 switches by the dinette and I know one controls the halogen spotlights outside by the ramp. No idea what the other two do.

I know on the side by the door that one controls all ceiling lights and one controls the awning LED's...still no idea what the third one does.

We have 2013 24HFS the three switches next to refrigerator: The one on the left is for the rear outside lights, the center is for the fuel station, the right one is for the heated tanks.
