I Am In The Dark In My Holiday Rambler Travel Trailer

by Frank
(Tucson)

Where is my power (inverter/convertor) 1989 Alumalite Travel Trailer. My lights inside stopped working. (No blown fuses) My water heater still works. I am connected to shore power and can't get my 12 volt lights to work. Thanks for any help in advance.

ANSWER: Greetings Frank thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

I am going to assume that you have also checked for tripped circuit breakers as well as fuses. I am also going to assume that you have checked the circuit breakers on the Shore Power circuit that your RV is plugged into. I am also going to assume that you have checked to make sure that you have not accidently hit the House Battery Shut Off Switch on your trailer if it is equipped with one.

The reason your water heater may still be working is that it might be using propane and not electric to heat the water.

I cannot tell you exactly where the Electric Converter is on your model Travel Trailer. What I can tell you is that there is not much that a do-it-yourselfer can do to repair an Electric Converter.

If you have done everything I have mentioned above then my suggestion is that you have a Certified RV Technician come out and take a look at your electrical system. There is a good chance that the Electric Converter on your Travel Trailer has gone south and may have to be replaced.

I am sorry that I had to be the bearer of bad news.
