Hello all

Hello all!! Just bought a new to us Freedom 1940 LTD!!! Cant wait to camp again!! Have had other pop ups and motor home but it has been a long time. So far this unit seems ok,can see where storage will be tricky but the wife is pretty good! Have seen the hanging stuff and i like this option if anyone can give me some advice on it! Anyway headed out soon for first trip so we will see how it goes!

If it looks like an oversize headphone jack, it is for 12v power. We had a couple of little fans that plugged into them when we had the pop-up.

The jack sounds right. We have those 12 volt receptacles above each bed for a fan/light combo, too.

Well thanks! that makes sense! I did some some 12v fans online somewhere,we have no a/c so maybe a good investment!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your Freedom 1940 LTD. With no AC the 12 volt fans are a good investment to keep the air moving.
