RE: Camper batt power not back on after disconnect shore power

Ok, so that 30A fuse RED wire in your pic will be the main power to the converter. Do you have the electronic battery disconnect switch or manual one?..If it is the electronic one then are you really sure you have 12v coming out of it?...thet elecrtonic switch is just a solonoid and even though it is clicking may not be making contact. I would put a jumper wire across the main RED wire in, and main RED wire out and see if the disconnect switch is really working. Your truck charge wire goes direct to the converter so will power up the 12v camper stuff regardless of the camper battery disconnect operation. The 120v converter also powers up the 12v stuff regardless of battery disconnect switch operation. I really suspect that battery disconnect switch as the problem for no camper battery power.

RE: Camper batt power not back on after disconnect shore power

Your Bigfoot will have a little rectangular 30A breaker fastened with a couple of wood screws somewhere between the batteries and the disconnect switch. Follow the 8Ga. RED wire from the battery until you find it. I do not think it is a re-setable breaker....however, you say you have juice after the disconnect switch?..that 8Ga. Red wire goes from disconnect switch direct to the converter. On my 2002BF the camper battery wire and the truck charge wire both terminated on the same nut in the converter. Pull the front off your converter and have a look. Maybe the camper battery wire has pulled out of that terminal somehow?

RE: Rain water in my basement. 2003 Bigfoot 2500

campingwiththoreau Just a thought on a problem I had on my 2002 BF 2500. One of the other outside storage compartments was getting rainwater in it. Problem turned out to be the storage door itself. The doors have 3 or 4 small weep holes drilled in the bottom edge, and the inside galvanized tin lining is caulked where it meets the frame. Seems factory got some of those doors upside down with weep holes in the top of the door. In my case the silicone caulk had mostly peeled off the inside of the galvanized tin and rainwater was coming in through the weep holes and then leaking out of the door into the compartment. I drilled small weep holes into the bottom edge of the door and caulked up the holes on top edge of door. Recaulked the inside rim of the galvanized tin and had no further problems.

Sad to hear. Lost a BIL to pancreatic cancer a few years ago. RIP Reddog1.

RE: Happijac

Do you mean the camper batteries are new, or the remote batteries?.... my jacks quit working one time and remote did strange things. I tried the cord plugged into the jack control box and still would not work. I replaced the remote control battery and that turned out to be the problem. Everything worked fine after that.

RE: Bigfoot carpeted ceilings -clean, remove, cover?

I wouldn't be in a big hurry to steam clean. Material is glued to Luan with contact cement. On my 2002 BF I washed the roof one time without having a vent completely shut by accident and shot water down the vent. It caused a lot of brown staining a couple of inches out from vent trim on inside ceiling. I'm pretty sure the brown stains bled thru from the wet Luan wood... I left it for months trying to figure out what I should do, then wife said maybe try using Oxi-Clean laundry stain remover on it. I pulled the plastic trim off then used an Oxi-Clean spray bottle to wet material, then right away used a small sponge to work it so I wouldn't pull loops out of the fuzzy material like a brush might. I had my wet/dry shop vac there too and sucked the cleaner out of the material after working it. I went over it twice and later when it dried completely there was no trace of a stain or that the area of fuzzy stuff had been worked on...only thing I would be careful about is if the whole ceiling is too dirty then the cleaned area might show as a whiter patch.

RE: How to I Set up my Portable Solar Panel

I am buying a portable solar panel. Do I just plug it in or is there more to it? Look at buying a solar charging kit or suitcase solar charging kit. It will come with a controller already attached and 10 feet or so of wire. You may have to adapt the solar wire connector to be compatible with plugging in to your trailer solar receptacle.....

RE: Happijac Help

When you pulled the jack apart and greased etc, did you pull off the cinch spring and check the roller bearing in there?... use emery cloth to clean up the thrust block sufaces and washer the bearing runs on?...I have also had to emery cloth rust from the hand crank barrel and bore when it is apart..

RE: Rear View Camera

Mine is wireless partner to my Garmin GPS. Wired it to my Lic plate light so is active with parking lights on. Is useful going down the road to see if someone is tucked in tight behind you out of mirrors view, but most useful in busy parking lots to make sure someone hasn't walked across behind camper as you start to backup.

RE: Bigfoot 25C10.6E door strut size

On my previous BF the strut was on the top of the door, but on this one it is on the bottom so not sure if same length. Sticker on mine says "Signature Series Gas Springs" made by "Newport Engineering Associates Inc"..... www.mygassprings.com Their website shows a whole bunch of models...mine is: part# SX200P...12" closed/ 20" open. Hope this helps

RE: Bigfoot 25C10.6E door strut size

Top of door or bottom?...why not email Grant at Bigfoot with year of your camper and ask him.
