Cold water isnt working when pump on in 1998 terry 5th wheel

All water flow is pushed by the water pump unless you are connected to a hydrant with a drinking water safe hose. Make sure all valves are set for water flow from the proper source. The water pump has a switch or two in the RV, usually near sinks or toilet. If the switch is on and no pump sound, check the fuse at the house 12v fuse panel (interior lights, furnace, refrigerator, etc.) If the fuse is O.K., it's either the pump or the pump controller.

Test the pump by hooking it directly to 12v supply or use a test light to see if power is available at pump wires.

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!

No 12volt supply unless connected to 240v mains

the power invertor could be the peoblem, or the fuse to the `12 volt supply sockets

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
