Puma trailer, Why is 2yr old Fridge not covered under warranty?
I purchased my Puma by Palomino 2 years ago from a dealership in Wisconsin Dells. The original owner had only used it a few times and traded it in for a Park Model. I purchased unit Oct. 3, 2012 had it set up Oct.5, and winterized it Oct. 7th. The outside Fridge worked all summer until we went to close down Oct. 2013. It quit, something to do with the compressor. I contacted Palomino, and they said since I wasn't the original owner nothing and I mean nothing is covered. This is a shame. A fridge 2 yrs old should not quit. Can you be of any assistance?

How could someone at Fixya be of assistance? Warranties typically do not convey. You should have purchased an extended warranty at time of purchase.
Try contacting the accessory manufacturer rather than the RV manufacturer. Palomino Contact Us

The fuse panel is located in the breaker box to the right of the breakers. Each fuse should be properly labeled. If a fuse is blown and there is a draw on that circuit there should be a red led that will light up to indicate which fuse has failed. If you have any other questions please respond to this thread.
Many times they have a clause built into the contract which the original purchaser signed and it only covers items for X number of years and only to the original purchaser. They know people trade out and upgrade RVs all the time. It is a poor way to do business in my opinion. The other option might be to find the serial number and contact the manufacturer of the fridge. Most give you a 3 year warranty on stuff like that.
At yr breaker box if there is room add either a new 120v or 220 breaker and wire frm there. You need to check how much voltega and amp. Yr travel trailer needs. Plus how far away breaker box is frm trailer and get the correct size wire if needed. Make sure you have neut. And ground correct. Please doulble check. What iv offerd. For yr solution
Most all travel trailers are set up for 30 amp single pole service which means 110 volts. Always check with your service manual and make sure, if you hook it up wrong you will burn up/smoke some electronics and it can be a costly problem. Also, a 30 amp service for travel trailers are not like a regular receptacle, it takes a special type of recept. Most any good electrical supply store can lead you in the right direction but you MUST know how to wire it up to code in your area! If your not a licensed electrician or at least know what I am talking about, I wouldn't recommend you doing this! It may have to be done in GFI and/or waterproof connections.
