Electric flashing off and on
« on: August 26, 2017, 01:21:28 PM »
We are on our first major trip of 45 days!!  We stopped for lunch at rest stop, opened up and discovered that the electric is pulsating on and off. We are connected to truck. Does anyone have an idea what's up?

By electric do we assume 12V??

If check all your plugs between the truck and the RV and the battery connections, you may have one shaken loose. If it is still a problem, disconnect the truck and see what happens.

One question I will ask Now fast.

Like on 1 second off the next and on the 3rd

Or perhaps it is a few ninutes on then off then on Minutes between state changes.

The latter is a self resetting circuit breaker More than likely.

Hard to tell without troubleshooting, but I'd start by unplugging from the truck and see if the problem continues, then I'd check my house-batteries.
