    Hello. We just purchased a 93 Jayco designer series popup camper. The guy we bought it from said the fridge does not work and it needs a new battery.

    From Shokan to ...?

    We recently purchased a 2001 Coleman Tacoma pop-up camper. The seller is on the road with his new RV and unreachable. While he covered the operation rather inclusively, I failed to retain the where, when and how to use the power selection switches. Please help.

    Replaced the battery, connected it................. nothing. Now what?

    So I'm on a steep learning curve here moving from car camping with tents to a pop-up. We recently purchased a 1998 Palomino Pinto-SG that had been sitting for a few years in storage. Mildew was minimal (some staining) but given the age it's less than I expected. Our model has a 3 burner stove...

    Hi I bought an '88 Coleman Columbia a couple years ago. I have a power converter made by BW Manufacturers, Inc. Series 6400a, model 6403. The 12vdc is just an empty hole. The fusebox/breaker or whatever it is called is missing. What am i looking for & where can I find it? Thanks!!

    Power converter recommendations.

    Hello guys. As you all know, I have purchased a 1976 Starcraft Starmaster 6. It comes with a power converter that is nothing more than just a small transformer, outlet, and 12 volt pop out circuit breaker. I’d like to upgrade it. My eventual plan is to add LED lights. I have already installed a...

    Power converter problem

    I’ve got a 1999 Coleman Utah. While repairing a plumbing issue, I leaned against the step while kneeling on the ground. Felt an electrical shock in my arm. I checked with the volt meter and discovered 48 volts from the frame to earth ground. I’ve narrowed it down to the MagneTek Power...

    1989 Skamper Power Converter

    I’ve been cleaning up an 89 Skamper 145c and when I got to the converter there were two wires that weren’t connect to anything on the 12v side. A white wire coming from the box (I’m thinking this is ground but could be wrong) and a black wire that I traced to the water pump. I connect the black...

    Power center replacement

    Installing a WFCO WF8735P in my 1993 Coleman Popup. The instructions are skimpy about some important items. First the size breaker that the DC section needs for power (30A or 20A or 15A). Second what is the 5-inch pigtail on the wire from the DC section that is identified as a branch circuit...

    New to PUP and have electrical issues

    We just purchased our first NTU PUP. We were told by the PO all lights and outlets worked. However once we got it home, I started up my generator and plugged the 30amp plug in. Only 2 of 4 outlets work. None of our ceiling lights work. The CO detector is not powering on either. All fuses are...

    Power Center Upgrades and Adding Batteries

    So, I’m going to add some batteries to my 1991 Palomino TXL, which has never had them. I’m also going to re-wire and add a new power center while gutting the interior. This question is about “modern” power centers. My current, presumably original, power center has a rocker switch to switch...

    Low voltage from the Power converter

    I am suddenly losing 12 volt appliances when I disconnect from shore power. The batteries are new, are fully charged, and I have checked most of the connections in the rig. All connections before the power converter are consistently reading 12.6 V DC. All connections after the power converter...

    Battery help!!

    My dad and I just bought a 2006 Rockwood Premier. The guy never used it, and the electric winch to lift the top had gone out - he didn't want to fix it and so he sold it to us at a great price. We took it to our mechanic (the camper place here would not work on pop ups!) and asked him if he...
