Red + on 1st battery, Black - on second.

Yes you will get higher voltage out of a charger than the converter, so a faster charge.

20% shade will eliminate any charging.

Try the last fuse in the converter fuse box. I think it is the same one for the CO/LPG unit, or the one above that.

Before you change anything, are you using 2 6v batteries in series or 2 - 12v batteries in parallel?

Have you actually checked battery voltage before storage with a digital voltmeter?

There are a few things that still draw power with main switch off but not enough to make them go dead that quickly.

If there are not any bad components do you know if you start your RV that it will charge the batteries faster than the generator? Monitor the battery voltage. It should jump up to about 13.2 volts as soon as you start the engine.

If you are using the generator and not 120v power plug to charge it takes hours to charge the batteries.

Also noticed charging system not working when vehicle is running.. battery meter would normally show full when engine is running and only shows 2 dots which is status of existing cabin battery.

Do not go by the dots. Use a digital voltmeter.



If it is not charging when engine is running there is a problem.
Watch digital voltmeter and push in the little toggle switch on left side of steering wheel, Audible click from relay. Voltage should go up.

Dicor works fine for me, anytime I see cracks I clean and caulk with Dicor.

Is the big switch by the door on?
Do you have a power management device which has a small meter that reads voltage or error signal?

Did you have 120v power when you ran the generator?
All the breakers are in the Converter box and all should be on.

That is way too hard. This is the best solution to resize images with windows.

There is a really easy way to reduce your picture size and resolution on your PC.
If you have Windows XP, I recommend that you download (free) this small program from Microsoft
Click to download - ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe

You just run this program once. It adds a new selection to your right click menu, when you right click a JPG file.
Then in your directory where you upload your pictures, you just right click on the picture file or select a whole group of pictures or a single picture. The pop-up menu will have a new selection, "Resize Pictures". When you click it gives you several picture size options and compresses the content to make uploads fast. It does not change your original, it renames the new file.

If you have Vista, Win 7,8,10 - Click to download Image Resizer Click DOWNLOAD, then click Image Resizer link (ImageResizerSetup-3.1.1.exe)
Follow same instructions as above for XP.

I didn't see that below, so here is a .gif file and a ,jpg file I attached using that method.

General Discussion / Atwood LPCO Alarm-Design Life
« on: July 11, 2019, 09:09:28 am »
I just discovered a product end-of-life design and thought I would clue you in.

The Atwood alarm for LP gas and CO has a 7 year life.

Exactly at 7 years both LP & CO alarms will not stop alarming. I got out the manual and found out  you need to buy a new one.

Carol at PC sells these for $50, I have seen prices as high as $130 for the same one on-line.
So for 2012, 2013 PC RV's they will ALL be failing.

Simple installation but now you no when you need to buy a new LPCO alarm.

Does you 110v power remain on. If you have a power management system your voltage could drop too low and when A/C goes off, power resets and A/C turns back on.

The small plug prevents bugs.
I added another tube and run it out the holes in the side cover. I didn't like the water overflowing into the cabinet. Looks bad but works fine.

I believe those outlets go through a GFI outlet in the bath. Check that, hit test and reset. Measure voltage in and out if that didn't fix it. Note a loose connection could be the cause of voltage drop and could be a fire hazard.

I stuck one of the pads on the plunger and the problem was fixed. More red neck engineering.  I'll have it adjusted during my factory visit. 

All you did is move the internal slider to a cleaner area for a better connection. It does not need this or an adjustment.

The problem is internal corrosion on the barrel switch. It cleans up when you rotate the switch barrel until it feels smoother. This is not twisting any wires. The slider is just moving to a less corrosive position and it is removing some corrosion when rotated.
