LOL yes, a large red switch that says on/off for battery power. Man they make this stuff way too complicated! and I thought building Airplanes was hard... LOL, makes me think they have Boeing workers putting these things together lol..

Good luck and happy camping. The HVAC buddy is the way to go to know for sure what the system is doing. I can tolerate as cold as weather as you can get. Trying to sleep in a hot camper would make me sell mine.

Yes'sir, I'm totally fine with cold -- it's miserable when it's hot...

Thank you all so much for all your help; this forum is pretty awesome.  I'll post some pictures of the other cooling tips I'm doing - that'll be good for a laugh or two for you guys  ;D

Once I take it off, what will I most likely see?
Hopefully a huge, red on/off switch  ;)

I work at Boeing so not totally in the dark about how electrical things work:). I understand its not 100% charged now that I've been using it, but its not dead in the water either. Let's move on past the battery please :). I think the battery is fine.

I'll take the cover off tomorrow and take a look. Otherwise I'll just take the darn thing in to the local RV place here and get this resolved. I like fixing things but this is getting ridiculous...

  Thing about it, an ammeter will only tell you if the compressor is running or not, not how itís performing. It can be pulling the correct amps, but if non-condensible gas (air) is in the system it can be showing appropriate amps but still not cool right. Itís not the same as a volt/ohm meter you said you had. Also, the thermometer method is a good indicator, but itís assuming your ductwork is all properly sealed nice and tight. A twenty degree differential between the return air and the supply air says your unit is performing as much as it can. But, just because you might see a 10 degree temperature differential between return/supply air doesnít necessarily mean the compressor/condenser isnít doing itís job. There are other things that can cause it. I like the little portable AC unit because itís on wheels, easy to move around, and under normal camping trips we donít even take it. But if a lot of kids involved, or expecting really hot weather....we pack it along.

Makes total sense to me - the hubs just doesn't want to be concerned with it.  It's pretty frustrating actually, but hey - such is the issue between men and women at times...I'll work on him.  I've got him on the phone with his HVAC buddy right now; hopefully the fire has been lit under his salty rear-end.    >:(

 ;D I put 6"x6" 'DIESEL FUEL ONLY' decals on our fleet pickups after a couple of incidents. I try to scope out the station for an easy entrance and exit, one I was at this morning would have been a no go had I been towing. Haven't yet had a problem with the trailer.

Motorhomes / 1994 Sun voyager cruise control

My cruise control has stopped working. Have push/on push/off switch with toggle switch for set/resume and cancel. Switch has power in and power out on green wire. Any idea where I can go from here other than a service center? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Ronnie

It's not that we're hung up on whether it's fully charged or not, it's how you determined that fact. As I said, pressing the battery button on the panel while plugged in does not read the battery, it will read the output of the converter. That's why I asked in the beginning if that is what you did. A simple yes or no answer to that question would have helped a lot. If you have hitched and unhitched 4 or 5 times, and the trailer wasn't connected to your tow vehicle, rest assured that battery is no longer fully charged. As I said while ago, your problem is most likely under that cover. That's where your battery hooks up to everything else. And there's a good chance that there is a circuit breaker in that box. You also stand a good chance of finding some corroded wiring there too. I know what you mean about working full time, I put in 10 1/2 hour days, and get called up or called in a lot on top of that.
