Problem solved...

OK, THAT'S taken care of!

I replaced the existing outlet... easy to do, took about 20 minutes. I was slowed down by working in the tight space up on the cab-over bunk, behind the TV.

Needed:

$ 6.00 dollar 115v 2 outlet receptacle, wire cutters, 2 wire nuts, box cutter, needle nose pliers, and a continuity tester.

  • KILL THE 115v power to the rig (don't ask me why I say that).
  • Take the face plate off.
  • Unscrew and pull out the old receptacle. Remove the 3 wires from the receptacle (Black, White and Ground). REMEMBER where they went!
  • Slit the black rubber shrink cover over the relay, and snip the 3 wires going into it as close to the relay as you can. Put a wire nut on the white and red wires.
  • The remaining three wires (white, black and ground) will go back on the receptacle.
  • Plug in your continuity tester to one of the outlets and turn the power back on... the tester should show a good connection (two yellow lights and the third one not lit, on mine).
  • Start the engine... if all is well, there will still be power to the outlet (the tester will still be lit).
  • As a further test, turn off the shore power again (engine still running), and turn the inverter on. There should be power from the inverter to the outlet. NOTE- Never have the shore power and the inverter on at the same time! Bad things can happen...
  • Assuming that everything works... turn everything off (engine, inverter, shore power, etc.) and put the receptacle back in the wall, and enjoy.
Disclaimer: your wire colors may be different, don't try this at home, hot water may be hot, don't eat peanuts if they make you turn purple, fresh paint may be wet, electricity might hurt you, yada, yada, yada.

Shouldn't have any adverse affects, I have ours on with shore power connected all the time. It's designed to switch automatically.

I just snipped the red wire, capped it with a wire cap, and that's it. Fixed!!

Outlets

Are there any outlet that work while you are driving down the road? Any difference if the inverter is on or not?

There are outlets that do work, but only when the inverter is on. The TV outlet, above the cab, works when the inverter is on, for one. I believe there are some others that work, as well, but haven't identified them all yet, myself.

The only one on the inverter is the TV, you have to modify it as discussed earlier in this thread. All outlets will work on the geny except the TV while on the road, again unless you modify the outlet.

had relay disconnected so tv and outlet now works with engine running, now my hydraulic jacks and generator can be operated without turning battery switch on, it seems to me these operate off truck battery, this happens with or without engine running anyone else have the same outcome, mine was done by a rv repair man

Control panel for jacks is probably connected to the chassis electrical system and the main power cables for the jacks themselves and the geny are connected directly to the battery. They do not go through the disconnect.
