rbq,

Thanks for the details, I think there is a problem. I have never had the light turn (on/off light) on when connected to shore power or propane. Will check this tonight.

V/r,

Dave

Update...


All fuses are good, propane is good but power is bad. It turned out to be the electrical outlet that the fridge plugs into that had no power. I am in the process of getting that repaired so hopefully we will have an actual refrigerator this weekend and not just an expensive icebox.

As for the water heater...I forgot to turn on the switch on the water heater. It works pretty well when you follow the directions.

Thanks to all for your help in resolving this issue. Have a great Memorial Day weekend and remember to honor our fallen heroes.

Dave

I'm glad everything is being taken care of! LOL at the hot water heater...it's tricky remembering all the steps the first time.

Usually by the time we figure everything out we're ready for the next camper.

just remember to turn the switch for the hot water heater off before you un-plug the camper so the next time you plug it into power it will not be on especially if you do not have water in the heater it will kill the element

only important when winterizing and un-winterizing.

since i've never had to do this, i can't advise anyone on bypass valves, antifreeze, blowing out water lines and so on.
