You must first determine if it is 30amp of 50amp service. If it is 30amp you will need a 30amp RV receptacle. 30amp receptacles are 110vac. DO NOT WIRE THE PLUG FOR 220! It will damage the converter and possibly more. If it is 50amp the it will be 220vac. Most power cords are 25' for RV's. When you go beyond that distance then you will experience voltage drop which could present problems with breakers overloading and tripping. With that being said, your local RV parts department will sell extension cords for RV's. To determine what amperage your trailer is, there is usually a decal above the plug port that will identify. The main breaker will also give you a clue as to the amp rating. If you have the power cord, look at the male plug end and if there are three brass terminals it will be 30 amp, if there are four terminals it will be 50 amp.

2013 Berkshire 390 fl. I have an electrical box and a plug in in the battery compartment. What is the plug for


IT MAY BE A TRANSFORMER PLUG TO ALLOW USE OF ELECTRICAL POWER TOOLS OR ACCESSORIES OUTSIDE OF THE MOTOR HOME SUCH AS A RADIO OR LAP TOP. I CAN'T TELL YOU WITHOUT EITHER SEEING A PICTURE OF IT OR A BETTER DESCRIPTION OF IT. IF THE PLUG IS SEPERATE IT COULD BE TO ALLOW YOU TO RUN A GENERATOR TO RUN YOUR LIGHTS INSTEAD OF USING THE BATTERIES FOR THIS.

Why do ALL lights work with the exception of the left blinker and left stop light?


On almost all trailers, the wires coming from the vehicle plug are wired directly to the lights on the trailer without any fuses inbetween. This means that, if your blinker and brake light on the left side is not working, either the bulb is burned out, you have a wiring issue, or corrosion in the vehicle plug or bulb socket is preventing voltage from reaching the bulb.

I have a 2013 Thor freedom elite 28z


if leaking from directly from behind toilet, check connection also if leaking from back of toilet. more than likely it is the vacuum valve on back of toilet. $50 dollar part. if not leaking there. pull all drawers in bathroom out. they lift out. if the inlet for the pressurized water is there, it is probably leaking from the inside. it is a $15 part but depending on access, does is leak when hooked up to water from pressure side or does it leak with just 12 volt water system?

What problems are on the ctu271rb?


Could you be more specific with your question? Are you considering purchasing this model and would like to know what problems other people have experienced? Every vehicle is different especially when talking about an RV. RV are hurricanes and earthquakes on wheels. They are drug up and down the road at 70+mph, bouncing, shaking and moving constantly. With that in mind, things are going to come loose and even break.

No dc power from batteries to trailer


Be careful, some manufacturers use Black for positive cable instead of red. White or green for negative. Why they don\'t all stick to same as car, red for + black for neg-.?? Best way to be sure is to check opposite end of cables. The negative, regardless of color will be bolted to frame short way back from battery, usually on inside of frame rail on tongue. That leaves whatever color, as + positive. Positive also normally has a fused link as well, or circuit breaker in circuit.

Travel trailer electric hook up


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.
