Few annoying issues

Still love our 2016 bh but have had some really annoying issues this season. First the USB plugs in bedroom are dead again after fixing last year. Might be related to the battery being junk after storage even though was new just before winter, even though manufacturers warranty covers for 3 years full replacement dealer won't cover a 3rd time in 2 years. The fridge even when set to gas keeps flashing that there is a problem, lucky it is on a seasonal site but makes me nervous about gas issues. Dealer has been useless on any issues, just wondering if any others have had similar problems or solutions. Oh and almost forgot the light on the power jack has not worked since last year and needed to jand crank the jack whengot it on site. Thanks in advance

My wh experience is to blow out the tube between the gas regulator and valve and the orifice at the burner. That has fixed mine several times when it was working erratically.

It does not take much of a cob web or dead spider to cause that situation.

If you didn't take steps to protect and keep your battery charged over the winter storage you most likely murdered it. It didn't die of natural causes. Low battery and improper charging can cause all of the problems you describe. Other things can cause those problems too.

Some of the requirements for battery warranties are proper storage, use and charging.

I always disconnect my battery after we use it . too many little things draw them down if your not plugged in and charging .. I also store my battery inside and put a trickle charge on it to bring it back up before reinstalling it come spring

I have a new 2016 X23B from day 1 my battery is not working we have charged it and the charger says 100 % I have no power unless plugged in to shore power. The light on power jack does not come on no interior lights work. We have looked for some kind of switch. Going to call dealer again they suggested loose connection. ANY INPUT FROM ANYONE ?

Fuse? You should have a 30amp fuse from the main positive cable before it comes in to the camper.

Ditto what spoon said. There are usually 2 fuses (possibly circuit breakers). One feeds the house and the other feeds the jack. Yours may vary.

Guys thanks for the input on the battery issue. We have checked connections and searched for a fuse. GENERAL RV is not being very helpful. We can not locate a junction box or a disconnect switch. The bottom of the coach is enclosed so no help there. When we had it connected to TV and left lights on for maybe 10 min the TV battery died.We have checked the fuses in converter to no avail as well. It's very frustrating as we have had this only since 7/23/16. Everything is great as long as your plugged in. It's a 2 hour haul to get it up there and we have trips planned for most of Sept. Should we disconnect battery till we can take it in?

You can buy a 10 dollar battery disconnect switch from Amazon, or wherever that installs on the negative battery post. Mine shows up tomorrow. I won't leave it in storage for more than a few days without turning it off. Cheap insurance for expensive batteries. Over the winter, the battery is coming home with me. I get 7 years out of a properly cared for battery. Yours may be DOA at this point.

Start at the battery + post. Then follow the wire until you find a fuse. Shouldn't be that hard. Usually within a few feet of the battery. For the fuse to the jack just start at the jack and do the same thing. If you end up at a bolt to the frame then follow the other wire.


Your converter and converter fuses should be just fine if you have 12VDC power when connected to shore power. I thought the problem was when disconnected from shore power.


If you disconnect the battery then the converter won't charge it up.
