So. . . my first night out solo was interesting. . . I was dry camping and I got up in the night to use the terlit and turned on the battery combiner so I could run the pump and I'll be a suckerfish if it didn't STICK ON.
Swell!
So. . . the entire rest of the trip my batteries were on all the time!
The SO, via email, advised me to rip into the monitor panel and change the momentary switch (would have to find one at a NAPA) . . . but ONE LOOK at all the wires comin' out of the back of that thing and I put it all back together and decided I was one lucky suckerfish that it stuck ON and not OFF!
So. . . I just lived with it.
Only ran the fridger on 12volt while underway and rented KOA sites there after for power - and hotel nights I ran the fridger on propane.
Everything was fine.
Well. . . we worked for FIVE hours yesterday trying to sort out the problem (I'm home now) and the problem was not in the momentary switch. So we disconnected the coach battery (so it wouldn't go dead) and I called RoadTrek today.
WOW. . . what a wonderful experience that was. The tech was brilliant, and happy and FUNNY. . . and he cut right to the chase and told us where to find the relay that either needed a fuse or, as a worse case scenario, would need to be replaces.
AND. . . I'm pleased to say. . . it took all of 3 minutes to find the relay (no wiring diagram in the manuals if you're ready for that!). . . and after replacing the fuse and tapping on the relay we're back in business.
YAY!
I was blown away that RoadTrek was so helpful.
It's nice to know that there is somebody out there who is willing to help the do-it-yerselfer who has the tools and the deisre to fix things themselves.
That's some kinda magic!
