There is often times a light switch located in the kitchen that when raised up will turn on the circuit for the microwave and when pushed down will activate the circuit for the fireplace. Both appliances are often wired on the same circuit and cannot be operated at the same time.

2018 vintage 19 red gray water tank sensor not working well giving false readings. Have no user manuals came with camper. what can I do

There isn't much you can do but fill up your tanks with clean water and drain it. Their is probably something that was in your tank that is hung up on the sensor and it is giving you a false reading. I live and work at a campground and I see this everyday. The sensors don't work half the time as you will find out the more you use you camper rv.

On a 2000 Jayco Designer 34' 5th wheel, the large slide retracts part way in, then stops, even though the slide out motor continues to run. we have lived in it one year in the same campground.

possibly gear arm is bent. slide outs are not made to be sat and lived in. you should be able manually slide it in. try to lift slide out by the arm with a hydraulic jack. place jack on ground use a 2x4 or 4x4 between jack and gear arm and lift gently. the teeth on arm could be stripped also. just ease into it..

Installing brake controller in 1998 Gm chassis fleetwood flair

I have used Curt brand controllers on a GM Silverado and a GM Express van. On the Silverado I had it installed parts+labor for $150. Hardly worth messing with it myself.

I have had to replace one on the road I accidentally broke. I found the replacement at a U-Haul rental place. Changed it out myself at the campground. They are readily available, function great, and reasonably priced. Connecting to the wiring is probably different from model and make to another.

Outlets not working all fuses are good

The following electrical components (if so equipped) will only operate when your
RV is connected to shore power: 120 to
12-volt power converter, air conditioner,
120-volt refrigerator, microwave oven, television(s), fireplace and appliances
plugged into convenience receptacles.

The 120-volt AC circuit breakers located in
side the main load center protect all
120-volt wiring and components in the RV fr
om circuit overloads and short circuits.
Should a circuit overload or short circui
t occur the circuit breaker protecting the
affected circuit will "trip" preventing the flow of electricity through that circuit.
If a circuit breaker trips, shut "off"
the appliance on that circuit (i.e., power
converter etc.) and allow the circuit breaker to cool down for a brief period of time.
After the cooling down period, reset the circuit breaker by moving its lever "off" and
then back to the "on" position. If the circuit breaker re-trips or frequently trips,
contact your dealer to have the electrical problem diagnosed and repaired.
A circuit breaker identification label is permanently attached to the inside surface
of the 120-volt load center.
Maintenance and Replacement
At the beginning of camping season, inspect the circuit breakers and replace as
needed. Test by turning each circuit breaker "off" and back "on". Circuit breakers
are wearable parts and must be replaced
as needed, as part of your RV
maintenance. If you have any questions, consult your dealer.
Please contact your dealer for repair assistance when replacing circuit breakers.
The power converter converts 120-volt AC power to useable 12-volt DC power
when the shore power cord is connected to an external power source.
The converter has a built-in protective thermal breaker that will shut it down should
overheating occur. Overheating can be
caused by operating the converter above
its maximum power output for an extended period of time, or by an obstruction to
its ventilation air flow. To reduce converter heat build keep unnecessary 12-volt
lights and motors turned "off"
Keep the converter cooling fins and fan clear of
Inspection and maintenance
If the 12-volt power converter is not working (auxiliary battery not being charged)
check the reverse polarity fuse(s) in the converter fuse panel.
There are no
customer serviceable parts inside the converter case and the
manufacturer's warranty will be void if
the case has been removed
. If you
have further concerns contact your dealer.

I have a 2014 Exiss horse trl. I bought new 11 mo. ago that the jack won't lift or drop now, it worked fine when I got the trl. last Oct., but now it just won't work. All looks fine, no leaks, the motor...

I would say that this unit works on the same principle as BOLT IN NUT. Your unit may have been over extended to the point where the bolt came out of the nut, and cocked to one side. Some possible damage inside occurred to allow this to happen. You would have to take apart, repair, and assemble to achieve proper operation. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Interior lights cycle from bright to dim and back

Most likely:
If it is a regular rhythm, look at your converter. The converter changes 120vac to 12vdc. Your interior light are 12v. A failing converter will cycle like that. Probably in the diode array and not servicable. I recommend one of the multi-stage converters. More $$$ but worth it. An alternator (on the engine) can do the same thing if the engine was running.

If irregular, it is varying loads on the power feed. Not much you can do about it except change where you hook up.

Lights and slide are 12 volts ... check your battery ... and your battery charger ... DO NOT TRY TO OPERATE your trailer on a dead or battery-less unit. You need a good battery for things to work properly ... deep cycle not automotive.

Good luck with our repair.
