Power Converter series 6400 Model 6415
« on: May 30, 2011, 09:35:24 PM »
I have a 1995 Starcraft Starlounge popup with a Series 6400 power converter. Model 6415.
I was testing the outlets today since I will be using it for 4 camping trips this year, begining next weekend.

Well all my electrical plugs work(inside and outside), but my inside and one outside door lights will not work.   Are there fuses that need to be tripped or replaced?   

I do not have a battery connected to this system. I move the toggle switch over to battery then off, then to the other side and it doesn't do anything.  But if I plug the main power on with a cord from the house, the electrical plugs work.

Any help would be greatly appreciate.

Paul

Paul,
Here is the schematic for your converter:

The manual:

There should be at least 1 fuse. Not sure how they are installed. Either in a square fuseholder you push in to pop out or possibly a round holder you turn to remove.
See if this helps. If you need more assistance just ask.
Good luck

So the outlets work but not the lights?

The switch is for the 12v lights, move to 'conv' when plugged in. Check the fuse behind the square fuse holder. Kill switch?

Hi all
What I did was look at the front of the power converter.  I noticed the two white buttons can be pulled out or pushed in.  So I pulled them out and pushed them in.  I also removed the fuses and both looked okay, no breaks or burn marks in them. 

I put them back in then plugged the camper into the house electrical and everything worked fine. 

What we realized was we bought a cheap set of awning lights and only 1/3 of the them worked. I think they shorted out our system and I had to reset it.

I hope that's my only electrical problem.
Thanks
from Paul

The white buttons are the 110 VAC breakers (outlets) and the fuse holder/s are for the the 12 VDC items.
