5. Another issue with lights might be the safety switch. With a popup there is a safety button or switch that must be made to run lights. Usually located somewhere on the galley with 2 wires to it. Sometimes it's bracket needs to be tweaked a bit to contact properly or a wire terminal might have popped off. It's a safety bc the lights get so hot they can melt stuff or cause fire if left on and trailer set down.

Did dealer sell you proper regulator? There are different models and styles. As well turn on the propane slowly. Modern tanks have a safety built in so that if there is a rush of propane out ( like initial line fill ) it will shut down the bottle internally.

Trace from the battery back to see if anything is amiss.
Fuse on the battery line right outside the battery was busted. I'll try putting another in and see if that was the issue. Most likely is.

I am just prepping my pop up and doing some mods. Can't wait to get out, so I'm envious of you. Have a fun weekend and best of luck with the new popup.

As to the controller.....read the directions ( and I'm not trying to be a jerk ). One setting won't be appropriate for all conditions, and having your trailer brakes lock up when you don't want them to isn't a good thing. Learn how to use it and adjust it whenever road conditions change. That needs to be something you don't have to think very much about.

Water.....I never drink the tank water. I will brush teeth with it, but that's about it aside from cooking with it (if I'm boiling it in the process). I take bottled water with me for drinking. It probably wouldn't hurt, but those tanks sit for quite a while even with sanitizing.

LOL, welcome to camping! If you're not buying stuff to fix issues, then you're buying stuff to modify your toy. :-)
