I have a tedco gas electric fridge. Works fine on gas but when i switch over to electric-no go. It says it is a 12Volt 12 Amp system and has a standard plug at the rear which I plug into an electical outlet. This gives me 120volts at the control. How do i get 12 Volts at the control switch?

There should be a small black box transformer wired into the ac cord
that goes to your standard plug
the transformer should then have wires going to your heating element
If someone has removed the transformer just order a 110vac to 12v 12 amp transformer and wire it in like you would a doorbell
when the transformer is working you should feel heat at the rear of your refrigerator at the heating element

My fridge is a 3 way dometec caravan fridge for a 2016 challenger sport caravan, how do I put it on battery whilst towing


Speaking from over 15 years of RV experience (including 7 years of professionally delivering them from factories), truthfully, you should avoid the 12 volt function on an RV absorption type fridge. The dirty little secret RV dealers never tell you is the 12 volt function on a 3 way fridge, is not a useful option and more of sales feature. They draw a LOT of power so if you forget to switch to propane or shore power when arriving at the campsite, you will kill the house battery in no time. If you are stopped for any length of time and still hooked to the tow vehicle, you may also kill your tow vehicle battery too. And if your tow vehicle 12 volt power supply wire is not functioning properly, you will kill the house battery, while travelling. A much better solution is to pre-cool the fridge at home before departing, by connecting to the house power overnight. Put some freezer packs in the freezer compartment and they will keep the fridge cold. I know this does not answer your question, but trust me, this is the best route. Happy RVing!

My RV has dual gas tanks, with a dash-mounted selector switch. I had it repaired a couple of years ago, but now one of the fuel pumps does not work. I need a color-coded wiring diagram.


MICHAEL, ON THE 80 AND EARLY 90's FORD PICKUPS AND CHASSIS WITH DUAL FUEL TANKS, FORD OFTEN USED AN ELECTRIC "Y" VALVE NEAR THE FUEL TANKS AND USUALLY, IF MEMORY SERVES ME CORRECTLY, A SINGLE FUEL PUMP. YOUR CULPRIT IS MOST LIKELY THE ELECTRIC VALVE UNDER THE MOTOR HOME NEAR THE FUEL TANKS. WHEN IT'S SWITCHED FROM ONE TANK TO THE OTHER, THE ELECTRIC VALVE LOCATED NEAR THE TANKS IS NOT RECEIVING THE SIGNAL FROM THE SWITCH TO CLOSE ONE SIDE AND OPEN THE OTHER SIDE OF THE VALVE. FORD HAD A RECALL ON THE 1992 FORD TRUCKS FOR THIS REASON.

1983 fleetwood prowler, 19ft model. How are the two switches wired for the water pump? We have developed a short, and cannot run the water pump from either switch.


Try running to the pump a known 12 volt sorse directly to the pump,if pump is working check to see if power is running to the switch or switches,sometimes the switches are fine but the pump is dead.uou could always run a new switch from a known 12volt source that is tapped into.good luck,Gary
