    We just pulled in to a walk in tent site after 6 long hours of screaming kids. Our voltmeter registers 13.1 and the radio works but nothing else. Breaker switch is on the right place. We have no clue what's wrong. Help!

    Check your white ground wire going from the battery to frame.

    I think I got it working. I just jiggled some stuff (very technical I know) and the lights are working. No clue why but I'll take it

    Don't stress over the artwork. Hopefully it'll be something you'll be able to scrub out. Just consider it could have been worse. Instead of drawings they could have been punching holes through the canvas with a pencil or other sharp object.

    I hope you never scrub out that artwork. There will come a time you will cherish it. The kids will be much older. Leave it for now.

    Magic eraser will get that out if you want to remove it.

    Well if you keep the camper for years to come - when you take the family camping & you bring the youngins girlfreind along - you can always use the artwork to embarress him w/ like baby pictures of them in the bathtub
