Sorry for the delay in responses but I went camping and didn't have reliable internet and dropped out of loop. Anyway, after more experimentation in the field, literally, contrary to my previous observations I noticed that in full sunshine the line from the solar panels to inverter and battery would intermittently fill in (indicating that panels were actually doing something), but I would only get 1 amp. (Incidentally, it would do this whether inverter was turned on or off at switch, which makes me wonder what switch is for.) However, the voltage would quickly shoot up to 70-80V and it appeared that as soon as it hit 80 the panels would disengage and solar power was lost. Which means that I'm not even consistently getting 1 amp! I've contacted Dehco and taken vehicle back to dealer but I'm so confused right now i'm not much help in problem solving. Meanwhile, while camping we sprang two leaks; one directly over our bed, which soaked our bedding and another in electric window behind driver's seat. The first turned on one of the lights in the bump, and above inverter and battery. It would not go off without disconnecting battery switch. I will spare everyone the details and drama of calling RV complete at 2 in the morning (don't bother) and losing a week, and counting, of camping with friends but I'm wondering if water has caused electrical problems. We took vehicle back to dealer with about a dozen issues; including non functioning fridge, webbing pulling out screws, multiple leaks, wheel shimmy (which they say they don't address), squeaky bed lift, etc. So it's sitting in the shop while our friends in new Pleasure Way Rekon go camping.
