3 happy campers, you only option will be to either plug into your TV or if you have a charger with you that you can use and stay on 12v, you can't do anything else. Good luck anyway.

They had to order it & it came in on Thurs. They didn't have a Parallax 500 Series 55 amp unit in stock.
Since I'm doing this while still using the camper & at a campground, I decided not to experiment with anything other than a direct replacement. I'll do the swap later today when it warms up a little & I can unplug from shore power & disconnect the battery.

The swap will actually involve just the lower portion of the power ctr.
It looks to be easy enough. Just have to label every wire & reconnect everything in reverse order.
I expect 30-60 mins to complete.

What a difference in a week.
Thanksgiving week it was in the mid to upper 50s & we were sitting by the lake just waring flannel shirts & vests.
This week the lake is frozen over & we had a couple inches of snow the other day.

Been there quite a few times myself, Otter Lake, nice park, good folks run it. Just hate the 7 mile access "trail" leading to it, always afraid will be the next reported lost soul in the Marshall Creek Times. Sure wasn't made for 101" wide RV's!

That drive is something else! Would hate to have to make it every day for work...
I'd rather have the drive on Marshall Creek Rd than be at a CG right next to an interstate. I'm sorry but it doesn't matter how many amenities a CG has, when you hear the traffic & jake breaks 24 hours a day just ruins the trip.

Well I didn't get to the swap out yesterday. I didn't bring an extension cord & drop light. It was too overcast all day & just a flashlight wasn't enough. Not going to be any better today. I'm 20' from the lake & @ the time of this post I can't see the lake from the fog.
