If you have the water heater set to AC, you need to make sure you have water in it, or you will burn up the heating element.

You may just be running on battery power as for as the lights go.

There's a trouble shooting guide in the files section upper left hand corner of web page.

I hope it only gets better for ya !

But man so far not to bad !


Turbs
The fridge and water heater are running and the propane is off so they should be running off shore power right?. AC ran too, for a while actually then I shut it off. How should I check the converter output? Thanks.

your pretty much the luckiest guy ever to mis wire a trailer!! LOL...i mean the initial 220 didnt fry much (or burn down the trailer), then you rewired it to 110 and took a great guess on the leg and again didnt fry anything!! i would say play powerball, but i think you used up all your luck for the week!

and nice excursion in the sig.....i bet its got purty turbo whistle!! mine sounds like a dual cat converted giant muffler v6.....my older buddies dont even believe me when i tell em its a diesel.....they expect tractor clak, as they call it!

Even if you mis-wired, you probably wouldn't have done much damage. Had a mishap at a campground that had the plug wired wrong. After plugging in and setting up, I was in bare feet relaxing, went to walk inside and got zapped by the steps. Did some quick diagnostics and found that the recepticle had been wired wrong. Popped the breaker, rewired, and was good to go with nothing wrong whatsoever.
