RE: DC Voltage Readout or Bad Voltage

Problem Solved....... Cleaned up connections thoroughly to and from batteries and between batteries and inverter/charger. Got good voltage. Important lesson I should have already learned. Thanks to all who replied.

RE: DC Voltage Readout or Bad Voltage

Here is a summary so far: Voltage on panel readout and battery voltage do NOT agree. Battery stays full voltage. So problem is downstream of batteries? With disconnect switch off (disconnected), panel reads 0. Disconnect solenoid works. Problem is between disconnect solenoid and panel, which could be anywhere in the 12 Volt system? Comments? Ran out of time. Will make more checks tomorrow. Thanks for all the replies so far.

RE: DC Voltage Readout or Bad Voltage

One possible place to start checking--not the only possible culprit, of course--is the shutoff latching relay for the "salesman switch". One way to verify is to see if the voltage at the battery, measured with a trustworthy multimeter, goes down along with the displayed voltages in the RV. If the display goes down but the battery stays pretty much level, the problem has to be between the two somewhere. Is this the House ON/OFF switch by the entrance door? Display voltage goes down, the battery voltage stays up. In other words, when the display shows low voltage, the batteries are still 12+.

DC Voltage Readout or Bad Voltage

I have an 04 Winnebago Ultimate Freedom Diesel pusher. When I look at the voltage readout on the inside wall, it starts out at 11+ volts. I turn on some lights and the reading rapidly drops, and soon the fridge is flashing "LOW DC". It happens with the unit plugged in (30 AMPS), or not, or running on generator. Don't know about 50 Amps. Doesn't happen with the engine running. My battery bank is new and good. Took them all out and tested them. In the last year or so I have replace the inverter/charger and the transfer switch and the EMS board. Don't know if it is related, but the EMS readout is not correct for 30 AMPS. Couldn't believe it is part of the problem, since the EMS is for AC only, I think. Please help if you know about this problem. Thanks.

RE: East bound interstate 10 Alabama rest area.

If you want to go farther, the Bass Pro Shop on the east side of Mobile Bay is very welcoming for overnights.

RE: Jumping a Battery

Does your coach have the switch that lets you combine coach batteries with chassis momentarily to give you a boost? Yes, it does. Doesn't help with trying to start my engine. No change. On further investigation today, I disconnected my chassis batteries, and both check out for voltage. I must have a bad connection on the chassis side somewhere in my system? Or other suggestions to check out? Anybody have this problem in past? My coach system appears to work fine. I am connected to shore power (30 Amp), and my charger shows "float charging".

RE: Jumping a Battery

Red to dead, red to good, black from good to under the hood (some good metal and NOT the good battery terminal) Can you explain this a little for the once-a-year mechanic? connect the red-positive of the dead battery first connect the black to car frame or motor mount, steel bumper etc.. NOT directly to the negative battery post of the batteries the idea is to Avoid a possible spark at the top of the battery where hydrogen gas may be escaping spark to hydrogen will cause an instant dangerous explosion Understand all that, but not the "Red to dead, red to good" part.

Jumping a Battery

Is it OK to start a MH (or any other vehicle) with a battery charger attached? In other words, use the charger as a jumper? I have one of those portable jump starter things, but it doesn't appear to be working great. Thanks.

Charging Chassis Batteries

Is it OK to hook up a battery charger to the bank of chassis batteries without disconnecting them? I am plugged in to AC in my garage.

RE: Flying J RV Fuel Lanes

We usually use the truck pumps if there is not a big line. Much easier to get in and out, and the pumps are much faster. But, the dump stations are usually near the RV pumps if you need to use one.

Refrigerator Fan Question

I have a Norcold 1210 refer. Is it normal for the fan to run all the time? I have changed the temperature to the lowest setting and nothing happens. I know the cooling part cycles, but I continue to hear a fan noise no matter what the setting is. It happens on electric or propane. Is this normal? The unit is a little over a year old and is out of warranty (of course), and I never noticed the fan noise until my last trip. The refrigerator has started showing "LOW AC" when I have a lot of lights on, which may be a symptom of another problem. Thanks

RE: I - 70 vs I - 80

How is the Diesel fuel situation on 36? Are there enough places to stop to make it comfortable?
