charging system issues.
« on: June 04, 2012, 09:22:24 PM »
I have a problem with my 1990 1/2 bounder. when I run the generator it gets a heavy load and I can hear a clicking sound coming from the engine compartment, sounds like a loud relay. and it cycles from charging to not charging with the clicks. also yesterday all the 120v plugs (except the coffee machine and bathroom plugs) are not working. Only read 0 to 40 volts on them. no trip switches seem to have tripped. I had it plugged in to shore power and I can hear a hum coming from the power unit where the trip switches are and the 120v plugs still do not work. I have a suspicion that all this problems are related. also the generator keeps shutting of after a while. sometimes after 5 min sometimes after 30min. all this issues happened within a week of each other :( ...my bounder will be my home for a while till I find a new place so I need to get this fixed.
ps. its a Ford chassis. batteries are new 6 months ago.
