There is a relay that operates when you hook up to shore power that switches from battery power to converter power. It also charges the batteries. If you do not have battery power then suspect a faulty relay. It is located inside the power converter.

Your breaker panel and fuses should be all together in Panel. Brown cover possibly/likely. Does the air conditioning work off thermostat?

Could be thermostat or safety switch(es) in the furnace. Are you sure that the pilot is staying lit? Are you sure the main burner is lighting? Are you sure the forced draft blower is running, and the blower-detection "flapper" switch is working OK? Any of these safety devices will cause the gas supply valve to close if they are not "satisfied" in a few seconds after the thermostat calls for heat. They keep your RV safe!

I am assuming you are referring to the two steel posts that extend from the bed deck to the bumper? If so, you may need to reposition the receiver on the bed deck to allow for proper support.

You need to determine if it is experiencing a ground failure or a short. You can purchase an outlet tester at Lowes for a low price that will indicate if you have an open ground, a short etc. If the GFCI outlet is bad then replace it.

If there is not a thermal overload reset on the convertor then it is an automatic reset built into the unit. When the convertor overloads and kicks off, it usually means that either something on the circuit has shorted out causing it to trip or you overloaded the convertor drawing too much power. Either way, if the convertor hasn't reset itself after a cool down period then more than likely, you convertor went bad and will need to be replaced.

Try the manufacturer first. Most have schematics you can download off the Internet or they will mail it ot you. No luck, google it. 90% of the time you can find one if you are persistent.

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.

At the back of the water heater there will be a series of valves. One on the bottom, sometimes one on the top and then one in a line that connects the top to the bottom lines. Make sure the middle valve is closed and the top and bottom valves are open. If there is not a valve on the top that can be manually opened and closed then there is a check valve installed. This check valve will allow the hot water out of the tank but will prevent the back flow of cold water during the winterization bypass. If the valve on top is closed it will not allow hot water out. If the middle valve is opened it will allow the cold water to mix with hot water and defeat the purpose having a water heater. Close the middle open the top and bottom. If there is not one on top then the check valve is probably clogged or has failed and need to be cleaned or replaced.

I don't want to sound condescending but you will not receive anything unless an antenna or an outside cable source is connected to the cable input. I have seen this and have had this question before. Some people actually believe if there is a cable connection there is reception. Kinda like the old "I still have checks in my check book, what do you mean I don't have any money."

drain hole plugged on pan

Jayco 2013 Jay... | Answered on Nov 16, 2017

It could be part of the DC fuse panel if there is a metal access cover door on it. Otherwise it will be near the battery.

You'll probably have to crawl under and trace where they go. You could possibly put some dye in one of the grey water tanks (ie: the kitchen sink drain or bathroom sink or shower drain) to figure out where it comes from. The black tank is your toilet drain. It always has the larger diameter pipe going to the valve (usually 2 or 3 inch diameter) The grey water tubing is usually 1 1/2 inch tubing.
