fixed... interesting problems-electrical
Hi. Well thanks for that. Took off the thermostat cover and low and behold a broken wire. So fixed that, and the furnace systems is working perfectly.
Must have it's own pilot light... the fridge one I was trying to light still didn't work, and I discovered... no 120 volt electricity is working. bit of troubleshooting, and somehow figured out how to open the front cover of the power converter. I'm no electrician but what the heck.
So, I see a 15 amp fuse is 'missing'. This one appears to connect to the carbon monoxide alarm system, which probably hints you to other electrical problems as a safety, i'm guessing. Then I notice a curious rattle, a loose screw, and with flashlight can see wire sticking out loose below the 15 amp circuit breaker. So I unplug everything.. low and behold that circuit breaker pulls out without much trouble.
I'm not sure where it all began but long story short, I bought a 15 amp auto fuse that looked the same from canadian tire, put in in, and put the two wires together in the hole in the bottom of the breaker where I thought they came from, and bob's your uncle the 120 volt system works.
Now, the fridge pilot system is working perfectly.. even though it's propane and independent of the electrical system I'm not sure why it would make a difference, but it's working. So yay it's working.
But what a jackass sells me this trailer, tells me everything is working, and has enough on the ball to actually disconnect the fuse to the electrical warning alarm.
Anyway without your help I would never have gotten anywhere.. I let you know if the fix holds. Super nice trailer when everything works I must say.
