New Owner- Basic Electrical Help

Hello- I just bought a used '99 Flagstaff 206 LTD pop-up camper. I am really a novice when it comes to this stuff, so bear with me... I am having a difficult time getting the power (both 12v and 110v) to work properly. When I have it plugged in, only some of the lights work (the bulbs are fine). When I try the to run it off of the battery, I can't get any power. I have a battery charger and charged the battery before I tried it. Any suggestions? Is the power converter in the access panel behind the fridge the only converter?

Thanks for the help!

Hello, and

While I can't help you, I moved this thread into the Flagstaff tent camper discussion. I felt maybe it would get more views here, and give you a better chance of getting an answer. Good luck, and be sure an post the answer when you find it.

Might want to do search in this discussion and see if there is anything here that may help.

Check the fuses. And if you have a flip-up galley, there is a switch that disables the lights if the galley is not down the whole way (in the usable position).

You should also have an inline fuse near the battery. I believe it's a 30 amp and from your description it could be bad.

bean may have the answer as to why you are only getting some of the lights to work.

Thanks for the advice grhodes50 and Bean. I will check and see if the switch at the flip up galley and see if that is it. I did replace the in-line fuse at the battery, so that should be OK.
