RE: Electrical Issue No A/C one circuit dead Fleetwood Terry 26

How exactly did you check for dc voltage at the fuses? My guess is the only fuse that has power is blown due to the negative meter lead being on a positive. Sam

RE: Freezer works, fridge does not.

This was darn good tread, thanks to the op for hanging in there and posting the solution. A lot of the complaints on gas reefers are due to poor installs. Sam

RE: Progressive Dynamics 9180, 9180A, 9180AV

Are you sure your meter is accurate? I was an electrical trouble shooter for years and I can't tell you how many times bad meters screwed me and most of the time they where fluke meters. Took me a long time to learn to always double check my test gear. Sam

RE: MH accident in gas station!

Wonder if that was a 3500 lb receiver the tow truck driver was lifting on? Did that MH have frame extensions? Kinda of scary stuff. Richard I 100% agree with that. I would bet that tow did some major damage to the rv frame. If it wasn't totaled before it is now. Sam

RE: Refrigerator Outside Vents

I agree that what you had is not right but what you have now is not right either. As was said earlier look at the install manual for your reefer and it will give very specific info on what is required to properly vent a side vent reefer, which is different than a top vent. Sam

RE: Will GFCI work with items without equipment ground

All this brings up another related topic. I know I'm wavering. My RV is in a storage lot where a, low potential, outlet is supplied for each camper. An AC unit or electric water heater will immediately trip the main. We, pretty much, only plug up to keep batteries charged. Nobody loads anything of consequence on the inverter or 12 volt system. Every motorhome owner I talk with seems to have a persistent problem with the GFCI's tripping. The only thing we all have in common is that we all have an inverter. Mine is a 1500 watt Xantrex PSW. Is there something inherent with motorhomes that could cause this? I know the 15 amp connections an campgrounds are GFCI, but I doubt they are used by motorhomes. Read ktmrfs post above (very good post) and note the last paragraph. If the inverter has the neutral/ ground bonded and its transfer switch defaults to the inverter, before the switch can transfer the gfi will pick up a neutral to ground fault and trips. This use to be a problem years ago but I thought the inverter manufactures had solved it, but maybe not. It could also be the inverters were not installed properly. Sam

RE: Will GFCI work with items without equipment ground

Not sure if it still is, but adding a gfci outlet to a two wire system was a code approved way to add an outlet with a ground pin, even though it was not grounded. yep, still permitted just need to add "no equipment ground" label to outlet. Sam Thanks to NECreader who commented on 2016/06/13: This article should state that NEC 406.3 permits GFCI receptacles to replace two prong ungrounded outlets: (3) Non–Grounding-Type Receptacles. Where attachment to an equipment grounding conductor does not exist in the receptacle enclosure, the installation shall comply with (D)(3)(a), (D)(3)(b), or (D)(3)(c). (a) A non–grounding-type receptacle(s) shall be permitted to be replaced with another non–grounding-type receptacle(s). (b) A non–grounding-type receptacle(s) shall be permitted to be replaced with a ground-fault circuit interrupter type of receptacle(s). These receptacles shall be marked "No Equipment Ground." An equipment grounding conductor shall not be connected from the ground-fault circuit interrupter-type receptacle to any outlet supplied from the ground-fault circuit-interrupter receptacle. (c) A non–grounding-type receptacle(s) shall be permitted to be replaced with a grounding-type receptacle(s) where supplied through a ground-fault circuit interrupter. Grounding-type receptacles supplied through the ground fault circuit interrupter shall be marked "GFCI Protected" and "No Equipment Ground." An equipment grounding conductor shall not be connected between the grounding type receptacles.

RE: 2003 Damon Challenger 348 - power problem

Damon never had wiring diagrams other than the generic ones in the manual. Check the fuses under the hood (bonnet) as I recall there are several on the battery disconnect panel on the right side. Sam

RE: 30 amp 240 volt mistake!!

Lets get back to the ops problem. Is this a rv refer or a residential refer? A rv refer uses 12 volts for the control board so the refer should still work on gas. If it is a residential refer than you need to replace the control board. Sam

RE: Intellitec Powerline 2004 EMS problem and issue

Some ems's get there reading from the water heater, microwave and or the refrigerator breakers. Make sure these breakers have power.IE, If you flip the breaker on the water heater it will mess up the ems. Sam
