    I have a 2005 Fleetwood Sea Pine. It’s been closed for the last 4-5 months, but we had a sunny day yesterday so decided to open it up. Right away noticed the voltage meter was at 0 so I grabbed the multimeter to test the battery and it read 12.1V. The outdoor light and the water pump both worked, but both indoor lights, the heater, and the voltage meter would not work. Checked the fuses inside visually and with multimeter and all were good. Plugged the camper in to AC power and everything remained the same. I’m stumped and don’t know what to do next. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Most pop ups have a kill switch that prevents the lights from staying on when the camper is folded. Often it is incorporated into the swing galley. Did you have it all the way set up?

    Yes it was all the way up and the galley was set up, but I will check the galley switch

    Thanks for the suggestion to check the galley kill switch. The switch works, but wasn’t being engaged all the way when I opened up the galley. Everything works fine when I manually press the switch.

    Add a small shim in the area to make the switch. I'd hate that you would have to sit there and manually make the switch all day. ;)

    We had to make a small wooden "pad" for the underside of our galley to make sure the switch worked consistently.
