We have a new-to-us 1997 Starcraft Meteor, a smaller popup (pullout bed on one side only), which seems about the right size for our 1990 Toyota 4 cyl pickup. I was able to find a PDF of the owner's manual online, but am still struggling to figure out how exactly to use the refrigerator, lights, and heater - the manual seems to assume you already know where/what everything is. I had no idea that propane could be used to power a refrigerator (I'm not stupid, just ignorant ;-) I found a sort of control panel on the side of the camper, which has on/off switches for both 110 and 12V, as well as a knob marked "High/Medium/Low/Off" with a red button next to it, which I assume is the igniter. There is also a 12V "on/off" rocker switch behind a panel at floor level in the interior of the camper as part of the electronics panel (inverter? Converter?) My assumptions (please correct me if I'm wrong!): - The internal control panel's 12V switch needs to be ON to use battery power in the camper - The exterior control panel is to control the refrigerator - The fridge can be run from propane, "shore power", or the battery - The fridge probably shouldn't be run from the battery - You light the pilot for this by holding down the know on High and pressing the Red button My questions: - How fast would running the fridge use up propane? - What happens if you leave both 12V and 100 rocker switches (in the external control panel) on? - Does the external 12V switch need to be ON to run the fridge on propane? - How do you tell if the pilot is lit? The manual says to look in the access port but gives no clue as to where it is or what it looks like. I can hear what sounds like gas being lit, but nothing seems to happen after that and the exhaust port does not get warm, so I'm thinking it's not catching. The stovetop works ok after I was able to finangle getting the "quick-release" (ha!) hose hooked up, so gas makes it from the tank to the stovetop at least. - When should the interior panel 12V switch be turned off? - How should all this be set for transport? - How to trouble shoot this pilot light? - How to use the heater? (we live in the PNW so likely won't need it often) Can anyone explain in simple, step-by-step instructions how to use the electrical and propane systems? It's confusing to me that there are multiple on/off switches for 12V (one inside but covered, one outside, but accessible behind a door) Thanks in advance for any light shed on this; I poked around a fair bit online, but have no confidence that information I've found translates accurately to this camper and really don't want to blow anything up!
