new owners of cherokee 28a

hi yall we just got our brand new to us 2006 cherokee 28A bunkhouse. already battled one problem before we even got to use it. was leaking in front corner by nightstand, not too big a spot. i pulled off all the old silicone (pita) and i think i have it solved. now i have small things to figure out lol like why i hear a whirring sound under fuse panel when i turn the bathroom lights on high, not on low. and i have it hooked to mu house on a long extension cord, so i expected it not to run everything in camper. but when it did overload(?) no breakers were tripped, still had power to adapter, so idk. i unplugged it for a minute and plugged it back in. nothing went back out later and it was on so anyway already having fun reading the forum thanks

Welcome! great trailer. we had an 05 28A. we loved it and it worked great for us. the whirring sound is the converter/charger. do you have a battery installed? with the trailer hooked to a standard 15 amp outlet everything in the trailer that runs on electric will work. you just can`t turn certain things on or it will trip the breaker in the house. the A/C and the electric side of the water heater are 2 major ones. have fun playing around with your new trailer. there will be lots to learn!
