You need to first decide what all you want inside as far as electrical features such as lights, outlets, fridge, stove , tv etc.. decide their locations then calculate the load it will pull and design the electrical circuits. Sound tough but it's not that bad

I have a 1989 komfort travel trailer, most of the inside lights won't work, about four will work on battery, I plug in and run the generator and only a few more will work. Is there something I can check?


Without being able to check it, I'm guessing your converter has gone bad. If you're not comfortable with testing and/or replacing it, you might try finding a local RV dealer with a shop which can do the repair work for you. Converters are available from places like Camping World and most of their locations also have repair facilities.

I have a 2007 Wilderness Scout 320 DBHS travel trailer. Some **** cut the main power cable coming out of the trailer about 5 inches from where it comes out. How do I replace this?


Look inside of your traler where it comes in, under /in a cabinet somwhere and pull that wire in. Go to your rv dealer and get a new wire. Go to a hardware store and get you a metal junction box w/cover and some wire nuts and mount that where you have room and splice it back together. Or foolow it to the beginnig and splice it back in there.

We have a 2005 Fleetwood Wilderness travel trailer. It is a 32 foot trailer. We are having an issue with low water pressure, but only when we are trying to use the hot water. Any suggestions?


I am not an expert on this but try looking for your tank andsomewhere between the tank and hot water tank there should be valves(used for winterizing) one of these could be slightly closed. If thats not it I would suggest looking for a crimp in a line starting at the hot water tank.

Slide out will not slide it is out but will not slide in, Battery is fully charge & electric is on. Any suggestions? 1998 Fleetwood Mallard 26' travel trailer


GO TO THE ELECTRICAL PANEL WHERE THE CIRCUIT BREAKERS ARE,ON MOST MODELS, THE DC INVERTER (12VOLT) IS BUILT TO THE AC (120 VOLT)BREAKER BOX.CHECK THE FUSES ON THE DC INVERTER SIDE(SHOULD LOOK LIKE AUTOMOTIVE FUSES) IF FUSES ARE GOOD,CHECK FOR PROBLEMS AT THE TRAVEL LIMIT SWITCH LOCATED SOMEWHERE AROUND THE TRACKS THAT THE SLIDE TRAVELS ON.SOMETIMES AFTER SITTING FOR A WHILE THE LIMIT SWITCH DO NOT MAKE PROPER CONTACT FROM AGE,USAGE, CORROSION,ECT.,EASY THING TO TRY IS MANUALLY MOVE THE ACTUATOR ON THE LIMIT SWITCH SEVERAL TIMES WITH YOUR HAND ,YOU SHOULD FEEL OR HEAR IT CLICK. THOUGH IT IS SELDOM THAT THE LIMIT SWITCH IS A PROBLEM,IF THE FUSES ARE ALL GOOD,THE ONLY THING LEFT IS THE SLIDE MOTOR WHICH CAN BE LOCATED UNDER THE TRAILER AROUND THE SLIDE TRACKS,UNPLUG THE WIRES,HAVE SOMEONE PUSH THE SWITCH WHILE SOMEONE CHECKS FOR VOLTAGE AT THE MOTOR,YOU SHOULD USE A TEST METER ABLE TO READ AND VERIFY 12 VOLTS DC.IF YOU HAVE 12 VOLTS DC WHEN BUTTON IS PUSHED,MOTOR MAY BE BAD,PLUG WIRES BACK TOGETHER,MOVE TO A SAFE PLACE AWAY FROM POTENTIAL PINCH POINTS AND PUSH THE BUTTON AGAIN.
THERE MAY BE A CHANCE OF BAD CONNECTION AT THE MOTOR PLUG.
I HOPE THIS IS NOT TOO CONFUSING,AND THE PROBLEM IS ONLY A FUSE BECAUSE A FUSE IS A MUCH SIMPLER,CHEAPER FIX.
BEST OF LUCK.

I have a Coleman Versa utility trailer. It's about 30 years old and the wiring is frayed, causing problems. I cannot find any info. re: a wiring diagram from Coleman or anywhere else. Do you know if one...


Hi,
I rewired my versa trailer several years ago. Go to any place that sells the 4 wire strand trailer wire and get about 40 feet. It is a bit tedious but about a 2 to 3 hour job.

If you run across someone that wants sell their trailer, please let me know. The top on mine is very hail damaged.

Jayco camper has 6-plug connector------car has flat 4-plug connector where do green,yellow,brown and white wires from car flat 4-plug connector connect to on yellow, blue,brown,red,green and white wires...


Hello,

It would be easiest, and best, if you were to upgrade the cars' trailer connector. The 4 way just supplies brake, parking, turnsignal, and a ground. The colors are the same on the 6 way, but 2 lines are added, usually for a electric brake controller and aux. circuit. Be careful about using the battery line (Red) on the 6 way connector unless you are also upgrading the white wire to a heavier gauge (at least the same size as red).

Green - Stop and Right Turn Signal (4/5/6/7 way)
Yellow - Stop and Left Turn Signal (4/5/6/7 way)
Brown - Running Lights (tail, side, tag) (4/5/6/7 way)
White - Ground / Negative (4/5/6/7)
Blue - Electric Brakes (5/6/7 way)
Red - Aux. charge line for emergency break away, battery charger, etc. (7 way)
Purple - Aux. backup lights / other purpose (7 way)

How do I connect 2 1850 watt coleman generators together to have at least 3500 watts to run my camping trailer?


It wont work. Electricity does not work like that. you can't double the power just by doubling the watts or amps. there is a lot and lots of other things involved.
I would rewire you camper so that half is run be one generator and the other half by the other generator... SO lights and fridge on one and plugs and heater on the other maybe...

Electrical wiring travel trailer-converter


I would for sure get my money back. What year and make is your coach? Are your appliances dometic/ac and fridge? The dealer made a serious error and obviously did not know what they were doing. Another question what kind of converter is it? I can help with enough info. If you live close enough I can give you a service call and give a better opinion.
send me an e-mail and I will give my phone number
