Hey, a larger gauge extension cord works! Go figure! lol At least it will work for now until I can get a 30 amp service installed. Can run a/c from garage recep. just fine now. Needed a quick fix as I had to get the frig going so we can get ready for this weekend!

I need someone to helpme

I have a 2008 2607 tt and when the tt is hooked to the house it does not charge the battery. How does the current flow. Does everything go thru the battery. If battery is dead should I loose all power. ( I do). I need to know what to look at. I replaced battery, checked all fuses, inline fuse under the camper, Where is the power converter located and does it have a fuse on it

That is smart, you do not want any wires heating up or blowing some board because of low voltage. most circuit boards are pretty touche. It will be well worth the money for your ease of mine

The voltage drop from wire resistance in an overly small extension cord has to go somewhere and that somewhere is heat.

(Think possible fire; sparks and a BIG expense in ruined RV electronics (just about everything in your camper could be damaged from low voltage as well as high - think "Brownout")

A long run has higher resistance than a short one.
A thicker wire has less resistance than a narrow one.
