Hallo (Dutch hello)! 😊🇳🇱
Hi everyone, thank you for letting me join your community!
We are from the Netherlands and took a half year sabattical, came to the US, bought a truck and a trailer and drove across your beautiful country in half a year. The plan was to sell everything after that half a year, but with all the beautiful memories, we just could not. Ever since we have spent every holiday making a road trip somewhere in the US. Now our trailer is getting older, we have seen some maintenance issues popping up.
We own a 2013 Forest River Prime Time Manufacturing Tracer 2670BHS Travel Trailer. We live in Europe, but the trailer is situated in Los Angeles, CA. Hence bringing in for maintenance and picking up when fixed again is hard to arrange. The one time we did find someone who sold himself as a repairman for RV’s, our trust was severely compromised. Not able to find anywhere else suitable, we would like to try and fix an existing problem ourselves now. We know this is not ideal, but heard a lot of things can be fixed oneselves when needed.
It looks like we have an electrical problem with either the converter or the inverter.
When plugging in in campground AC, some items do not function anymore, for example fridge and slideout. When plugged into the truck for driving, the slide does come in fortunately. This situation however is undesirable and needs fixing.
Fuses/breakers were checked and not tripped nor loose. Battery was replaced and wiring checked.
I would like to know if anyone can help us in stating the possible problem and how it can be fixed? Then we can order the part and when back in LA, we can try fixing it! Thank you in advance for your help!
