Hi All,
   Has anyone switched out the "old" fluorescent ceiling light fixtures for the new LED fixtures?

It seems I read that in one message, but cannot locate it even using the Search.
 
   Considering it, but would like your input.
 
 Thanks!

What is this fuse for?   Has Mercedes put out an official notice on this?  Thank you.
Still must find why my Sprinter battery (under driver's feet) has a slow drain.   
It is a mystery.  Do not know where to go....Dodge?  Mercedes?  An auto electric shop?
Any input will be welcomed.   Do not want to have mega-hours on work order....just want it fixed so it can
be used.   Yikes...
Thanks again,
LRS

Appreciate all input.

The switch near the floor by side door....Store or Use.....is on when shore power is used.   ??

I read that someone mentioned a switch near the driver for starting the engine using coach battery power....do
not think it is on the Sprinter.  ???
7  Main Forum / General Discussion / Sprinter question on: January 02, 2014, 12:56:05 pm
Hi, Guys,
   Saw the electrical posting for another model.  Does anyone have this for the Sprinter?  I have a 2400.
Got all new batteries in Sept.  Drove 2000 miles and all worked fine.   Battery dead. Had to use key to open
the door.  Put a charger on it and it worked after a few hours, but this morning would not turn on.

Interstate batteries...
 Could not see anything on....on dash....to drain it.

It has been on shore power since the Oct. trip.    The inverter on/off panel is on wall behind driver seat.
The converter (I think...with fan) is below the fridge.  Can hear it at night.   
Never saw breakers others mentioned....different model...as under their bed.

If anyone has an idea, please...

Would the inverter (1800 model) draw on the truck battery if the wall switch is off?    Have hardly ever used it.
THanks!
Linda

We got a custom fit dashboard cover with the vent holes and all for our '98 Tahoe at www.autoanything.com/.

A black towel or two also works.   Smile

Makes sense, even to me.   Afterward, the auto mechanic said they must've been on the
same electrical circuit---the burned out bulb had broken the circuit.   

I am just glad two problems have been solved with one "fix."    Smile

Thanks for replying.   L.

Well, being basically ignorant of electrical stuff this mystery was solved anyhow.  Yay!!!

Problems:  The step would not stay down when using the wall switch by the door. 
                The outside light would not work when using its switch. 

I replaced the bulb in the outside light fixture and wow...they both work now! 

(I had called the factory and checked the fuse...under the Sprinter's passenger seat...but the fuse
was ok.)

 The two switches were unlabeled, but now I know that the white switch works the light and black works the step!
Yay.  Dumb luck.

Well, 2400 Sprinter was taken to Camping World for a replacement macerator pump.  Thankfully, they had one left. The ext. warranty I bought from Amanda(?) at PC factory paid for most of it.  I ended up paying less than the deductible.  Hope all is well now.   Smile
I plan to take the advice given about keeping the tanks clean...dumping just not enough.  Also watched the online videos and hope with
the new habits, the sensors will clean off and stay that way.   Thanks again!

Well, Camping World replaced the macerator pump for me.  The extended warranty product that Amanda sold me paid for most of it, including the labor and taxes.  I paid less than my deductible. 

Now on to other issues.   ( haha) 
Cross this off the "to do" list.  At least this one seemed to be the most serious.  Hope so.

Has anyone with a Sprinter had the steps not stay out?   The outside light near the door does not come on either.  Both
switches are beside each other inside on the wall.   Could this be a fuse?    Would anyone know where they are for this?

I am not mechanical and definitely a novice with car/rv stuff...or anything mechanical.

Thanks,
LRS

      There is a drip under the macerator pump-----at least
 I think it is the pump part----over to the right side in that area in that bin/compartment.   Talked to someone at Camping World and he did not seem too knowledgeable.  ???   E-mailed P.C. but have not heard back yet.  The C.W. guy said to dump and flush before
coming...since they were not equipped to do that.  Hmmmm...

After dumping, the water kind of flowed down that black pump in a little stream.  By the time I got
home (15 miles) it was just a drip.   
The sensors  must not work well, either, since the inside gauge lights don't seem to change much after
dumping.   Help!    Am hoping some of you experienced folks can offer advice.    Thanks so much!
