2007 rw276

We recently purchased a 2007 rockwood 276... we are having problems with electrical stuff, so to speak... Last camping trip our inside receptecles shut off our elec. blankets and other things plugged in.. We think there must be a switch we don't know about that changes things to the 110 volt... Does anyone have a manual showing the converter and what it does and how it is set? Thanks for anyone's help

: confused:?

To use any 110v power (electric blankets, microwave, TV, etc.) You must be plugged in to shore power. If you were, make sure you have no tripped breakers in the 110v breaker panel

Thanks for your response... We think we may have overloaded the circuit by plugging in the space heater and an electric blanket...Other things plugged in to outlets worked just fine (like lamps). It just kicked off the heater and blanket. I guess I will try going out the window with one of these cords and plug in directly to outside source... We are going camping this weekend and it will be a low of 30 degrees so we are trying to figure out what went wrong last time..

Ok, that makes sense now. In my old 30 trailer, when running heater(s), I'd either bring a 20a cord thru the slideout seal, or run the fridge and water heater on gas.

Happy camping!

look up the brand and model converter you have and you should be able to download the manual from the manufacturer's website.
most FR RV's come with a WFCO converter.
