Hi there , I’m new to this forum , and would like to start by saying hi from Ontario Canada. I got a used 2514 g premier rockwood last year and I am loving it. But this season I notice my fuse panel is quite hot ( I think) and I never see the fan run which concerns me. So my question is when should that mini fan run if at all? Is this an issue I should obsess about?. FYI, I am dry camping, using no generator or battery hook up , water heater, furnace- just the fridge running of campground hydro and using the outlets in the trailer for radio, ice maker etc

from way west of where you is at!


Our converter fan would run with just a bunch of lights on when they were still incandescent. You might be on to something there.

How can you use the ice maker and outlets if you are dry camping (no hookups)? I think you need to re-describe how and what you are hooked up to. Then be very specific as to what is very hot and what fan you are talking about. Take a few pictures if you need to to explain your situation.

The OP has a popup.
Since he's Canadian, hooked to Hydro means he has shore power.
Also sounds like he doesn't have a battery installed.

OP, if you don't have a battery installed, you don't have power for the electric brakes while driving, which is against the law. Also if you have electric hookups, you aren't dry camping.
