Main Power

We are not getting power from the main switch. Battery appears charged and have not located any bad fuses. Any idea what our problem is?

What do you mean 'appears charged'? Did you put a DVM or VOM across it?


What about if you apply shore power?

You are not giving us much to work with.
1. What camper do you have? year/model.
2. Have you verified you have power where you are plugged in?
3. Have you tripped/reset all of the breakers in your converter?
4. When was the last time it did work?
5. Has anyone been working on your electric system?
6. Exactly what are you calling a "main switch"?

Husband said with generator and shore power it comes on, clicks, and shuts back off.

X2

MH are wired a little differently than a traditionally TT, due to the ability to have a generator.

First start with the easy things. Check to ensure you have power at the pedestal. There is a circuit breaker there, and many people turn them off before plugging in. Do you have a disconnect switch for the battery? Have you checked to see if you have power while the coach is running? If you had the batteries disconnected recently, there is a chance the fuse for reverse polarity is blown. It will be with our 12 volt fuses, most likely in you main fuse panel, or with the converter.

Does your 120Volt items such as AC or microwave work, when plugged in to shore power?

Husband tapped the (I think he said) solenoid and now we have power. Will get it checked out when we return home.
Thanks everyone.
