Trouble with power for Hi-Lo 1990 model!
« on: March 07, 2016, 12:30:24 PM »
Here's the issue.

The power is plugged up correctly to the outlet, the breaker outside is on. The actual Camper's breaker's are ON, and they are getting power (we checked with a tool). No lights, Fans, nothing.

What could be the issue?

Thank you!

Welcome to The RV Forum!

Your lights and fan are powered by the trailer's 12 volt battery.  Make sure it's installed and not run down.

12 volt power is protected by automobile style fuses.  The circuit  breakers control the 120 volt power.  Look for a fuse box / power center inside the trailer.

The 120 volt AC power runs your 120 volt outlets, 120 volt  appliances like the microwave and the converter that produces 12 volts to keep the batteries charged when you're plugged into power.

On a pop up camper you may also have a problem with the jumper cord that goes to the roof if all of your dead lights and fans are there.
