Recommend you contact your nearest RV service center to have this done. This will ensure proper and safe installation. The last thing you want is a fire from improper wiring solution.

2001 holiday rambler endeavor have lost all lights in side. Plugins still work tvs and fridge

So, you have lost your 12V power, but you still have 120V power. In an electrical distribution panel, probably in an outside compartment near the drivers seat, there is an electrical solenoid switch that may not be working. If you can use a test meter, see if you have power at that switch. I That solenoid does go bad sometimes on Holiday Ramblers and Monacos. You can temporarily bypass that panel switch by joining the 2 heavy wires together and see if you then have lights, etc. And, be sure that you have your 12V house switch in the on position, in the battery compartment and that the switch near the door is turned on.

How do I find a wiring schematic for a 2007 holiday rambler endeavour? We are having a water pump problem. It has multiple switches.

Just put a new wire from switch or fuse box or on any 12v line to the pump,
Connect pump direct to check if she is good.

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!

Do you have 12v when plugged in or on generator? If you do, then it's likely 1) a fuse or breaker for the converter, or 2) the converter is dead. Is your battery good? Try using taking the battery out and using to crank your car or truck. If that works, look at the fuse or breaker for your converter or your converter may be dead. If the batter doesn't work, do the opposite and put your car/truck battery in your RV and see if your 12v works -- if it doesn't, then check your converter fuse/breaker or it may be dead; if it does, then your battery is terminally (pun) dead.

Wireing diagram for 2014 crusader 295rst

Wiring diagrams are not available as the manufactures to not publish them. You will probably have to find the closest 12v power source and tie into that in order to install fans.

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...

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
