This is, what I think, the basis of that recall letter in that other thread.
Jayco forgot the breaker on the roof solar connection.
Just my opinion.
Very GTK, thank you, that makes a lot of sense. I think I understand now.
However, on the part above, the black wire on the + side of the battery going right to the lower (50A) breaker. I think that's just as you say the main power line to the trailer for (+) as I measured 2.7A on it just now while the trailer was on DC only with the lights on inside. Maybe the heater fan was also going.
There is good news here though. I found a white and black 8 gauge wire here (photo) that when disconnected did not affect the DC in the trailer at all. The service guy at the dealership connected them when I picked it up. There were two pairs of black and white 8 gauge wires with tape on the ends sitting there at the battery box when we purchased it. I connected 1 pair and nothing worked (DC). He connected the 2nd pair and the DC worked.
BTW, in the photo, I added the green tape after disconnecting these two. I have tried everything in the trailer (DC wise) and all seems to be working still. Also this photo is to the left inside the battery compartment towards the front. These two wires appear to go underneath the front (master bedroom).
So, now, a couple questions unanswered:
1. Verify where these go. Not all the way to the roof as I did not get battery voltage up on the roof at the solar connector when I measured up there with a voltmeter.
2. These two wires route up under the master bedroom because when I pull on it I hear it under there...where is the other end?
Ok, calling the dealer about the water in the ceiling light. I really hope it's a quick thing and doesn't mean we are going to wait a long time.
