There are lots of smarter folks on this board than me, but I'll give it a poke.
I believe the cord from the 120v incoming line connects directly to the fuse box located with the converter behind a removable panel. Mine is located in the hallway on the bathroom wall down at floor level.
All the best,
T

Hi busymanran, Welcome to the forum.

If you tell us the model and year there may be someone here with that model that could give the exact location.

The only help I can offer is that the electrical box with the breakers is "usually" close inside to where the AC cord enters the trailer and almost always down near the floor.

What's "shorted"? Is it the power coming into the camper from the 120 volt plug or the 12 volt stuff for the lights etc.?

Great question. I have the same problem and I'm pretty sure if it's the 12V it's a fuse which should be in the converter. Hope this helps.

The modern switching supplies have "line fuses" in the converter older ones usually had a 30 amp fuse near the battery. If the outlets don't work then it's a 120 volt problem if the lights don't work then is a 12 volt issue.

Thanks mainah. Mine is a 1986 Satellite. I found a blown a blown 30amp in the converter box and replaced it. When I plug in to the 7 way on my truck all lights work. When I unplug, they stop. Going to try new battery next. Thanks again.

Short

Hi and welcome to the forum. My guess would be the 12 volt battery. The lights will work fine when hooked up to another source like your truck.

Good luck!

Dave

I sounds like a dead battery but do your lights work with the trailer plugged into a 120 source? I would check that before getting a new battery right away. If they work I would then go with the battery. If they do not work then it is a convertor problem.

A 30 amp fuse is pretty hefty one sure fire way to take one out is to reverse the battery polarity. I would check the camper battery voltage first before I ran out and bought one.

Happy Spring!!! We are new to this and this is our first Spring set-up. We pulled her out and plugged her in. The air conditioner works, the microwave works, the plug in the wall works. The fridge doesn't work and the lights don't work. It's a 2003 20 ft solairs. Are we missing something??? LoL We're hoping to travel in a couple of weeks. Thanks in advance for any help you can give us. Jackie

Hi, the first thing that I'd check for the refrig is to see if there's power to the plug that it's plugged into. That plug is behind that white vent on the side. It's right behind the frig. Use a circuit tester or just plug a lamp into it to see if it's working. Just a starting spot for you. Good luck!

Dave

Sounds like you have no 12 volt power. It could be as simple as a dead battery from over the winter the fridge needs 12 volt DC to work and the lights also. Some converters need a good battery to work so that would be the first thing to check. If it was discharged over the winter it is possible it froze that seldom does a battery much good.
