2008 Flagstaff River forest Popup camper
« on: August 03, 2017, 03:41:33 PM »

 I have 2 questions hoping you can assist in troubleshooting to see what is going on with my Popup camper.
1) The Electric Winch will not make any sounds or popup my camper. Troubleshooting done.
- I made sure camper was level, with the stablizer jacks down.
- The clamps are off and not holding it down
- Battery has full Charge even bought a new battery to reassure was all good.
I have not taken it loose to check to make sure the wires are tightly connected yet. I do remember the last time I used it and was working properly the button would get stuck and I had to wiggle to get to stop popping up ( if this helps any at all.)

2) Last time I took this camping, it was plugged into the Electric at campsite once was up the AC would work, and the Electric outlets in the camper were working but the lighting was not. My husband being an electrician checked the Campground Electric and it was good, Checked the Fuze box and all was good Not sure if could be the converter box or what please help me in assisting of getting trouble shot I am hoping to soon trade this in and do not want to have stuff wrong to where mark down on trade in.

I recently encountered the same set of problems on my friends pop up. The electric winch problem turned out to be the switch was gone. We found that by hand cranking the camper up a bit to make sure nothing was stuck. When we hit the switch it went back down. We then bypassed the switch and it went up. Replaced the switch and all was well. You said you had to wiggle the switch, so I would be leaning toward this being the problem. Also it should stop going up automatically when the limiter switch reaches maximum. Could also be the problem as the power goes through the limit switch before it gets to the winch. If the main switch is not faulty, check the upper and lower limit switches, they could be faulty.The interior lights turned out to be a faulty switch as well. The galley folds down out of the way to close down the roof. On the underside of the kitchen sink, (galley), are two switches. On his, the one switch disables the lights, the other disables the furnace. These safety switches are there to prevent you from putting the top down with the lights on, and or the furnace. I unplugged the switch, and connected the two wires for the lights together and the lights came on. I would not recommend bypassing this switch, as it was meant to stop you or others from possibly burning your camper by putting it down with the lights on. He is currently waiting for a new switch to come and has disconnected the two wires. Hope this helps. Good luck.
