Your lights are 12volt.

Either, the lights work off camper 12V dc battery...
Or they work off 120Vac transformer with 12Vzc output.

If lights work when camper is not plugged into 120Volt, and there is not separate fuse or circuit breaker for the lights, then I guess the light work off the battery.

There is probably a cartridge fuse located under steering column
Many items on dashboard are fuse-protected with plug-in fuse available at auto parts.
Call local auto shop and ask where the fuses are located, or call local RV shop.

This is most often caused by a faulty 24 Volt, section, (usually damaged output semiconductors, or the drive?) in the speed controller, fault, the only "Fix" is replacement. Simply obtain the entire speed controller and replace it "En Bloc" as it were. You will need to also obtain a service manual so you can disassemble it and obtain the parts numbers for the replacement parts.Otherwise take it to a professional and ask for a "Quote" as to prospective costings and go from there.

My S&S camper is generator prewired white, brown, yellow, green wires, my Onan 2500 LP has Blue, Red, Brown, Green, Orange, what do I connect what to???


White Brown green and yellow are normally The 12 volt vehicle lighting colors, not 110 volt power. Generators do not have FIVE wires for the power wires out of your generator. Is this the remote control circuit? If so, I dont have a clue!

How to convert 220 volts to 110 volts for the iPod Touch


<p> <p>The battery of an iPod Touch prepared for use in the United States is designed to be reloaded from the current supplied by a 110-volt electrical system. Power is transmitted to the battery charger with an iPod battery, which are connected via a USB cable and then connected to a 110 volt outlet. To use the power of a 220 volt outlet with an iPod Touch, set the current 220 volts to 110 volts. A conversion adapter voltage, also known as "Step Down Transformer," it is necessary and can be obtained from an electronics store, a hardware store and even some drug stores. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Place the 220-110 voltage converter card (aka, "Step Down Transformer") next to a 220 volt outlet. Plug the adapter into the outlet. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of a USB cable to the USB connector USB iPod charger iPod. Connect the other end of USB cable into your iPod's own socket on the bottom of the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Plug the iPod into the 110 volt outlet in the battery adapter for the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Unplug the charger from the iPod adapter and the adapter from the outlet when the battery is charged. Unplug the USB cable from the iPod charger and iPod Touch. <br />

I pluged in a 12v LED light to a 110v outlet, how can i fix the light


It's probably not repairable. You may have to replace all the limiting resistors and LEDs.

Looking for manual or information my 1988 TravelAire Camper van. It is on a Ford e-250 chassis. Need to know how the 120 Volt system works; i.e. does it operate all lights (including 12 volt); does it...


Typically, the 110 Volt will go into a power center which should include a small amp battery recharger. Your 12 volt lights should run off a 'house' battery which should be isolated from the truck battery, yet, the truck alternator should charge the "house" battery on the road. The device that allows this is called a Isolator. You may find a manual switch instead. You definitely don't want the house and truck battery to both run yourf coach with no recharge capability. Some systems have a 'emergency start" switch which allows you to use the house battery to start the engine. All 12 volt house stuff should run off the house battery and the battery should be recharged by the truck or the small battery charger. Do you have an evap frig? Runs on propane or electricity? It needs 12 volts whether it is running on gas or 110 Volts. The 12 volts runs the control panel and the heat to make it work is supplied by the gas or by a electric calrod if 110 is available.

I am pretty familiar with these electrical systems ... I seriously doubt you will find any information on your 20+ year old motor home. Typically, the printed specs and equipment and the data is obsolete before the ink is dry because the manufacturers use what is available as they build. If you have additional questions simply click on the "add comment" or the "reply" link and I will take a look-see.

I hope this answers your current question. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Power outlets on console and in lighter area don't work,fuses under dash are OK>


You need a 12 volt test light,connect gator clip to known good ground,probe center bottom stud in lighter,if light is on you have power to system and the most common cause is a bad ground to the system,to check for a good ground ,reverse gator clip to known battery voltage and touch Sharp lead to lighter housing if lights up you have a good ground.

Our window AC unit stopped suddenly. Completely dead. The outlet has power. It's a 220V unit. LG window AC LW2510ER Any advise what it could be? Does it shut down when it's 100F outside? Thanks...


No - the outside temperature will not shut the AC down.
You say the outlet has power? Does it have the needed 220 volts? Most of the time 220 volts is on one switch, (that operates both 110 volt legs of power at the same time). - but sometimes each leg is on a separate breaker and if "one leg" trips you will still have power at the outlet (110 volts) but you won't have the needed 220 volts. While this is not likely - it is possible - so I would want to test the outlet with a voltage tester and determine the voltage. You might try checking in your breaker box and seeing if another breaker (110volt) is tripped. The same thing applies if you are dealing with fuses instead of breakers - determine the voltage at the outlet - and if you don't have 220 and only have 110 then look for a blown fuse or as I said above - a breaker tripped.
If you do have 220 at the outlet and nothing is running - I would be looking for an inline fuse of some sort within in the unit. Many of the newer units have them and they are usually easy to spot and all you have to do is to unscrew the fuse holder and replace the blown fuse. Be sure to have the power off when handling fuses.
Note: Be aware that while breakers/fuses can trip and blow without a serious problem going on - they (blown fuses/tripped breakers) are usually a sign of something significantly wrong with the unit.
Good Luck!

The ac trips the breaker in the camper when the compresser comes on


Check that incoming voltage is up to specs at AC unit control box ( 110-120VAC ), and if good, I'd suspect start capacitor for compressor is defective and needs replacing provided compressor is good. Usually a new capacitor is required in most cases. Please don't try changing it yourself if not experienced in that area, as capacitors can give a very high voltage shock, even with power off.. Don't forget to turn breaker off to power source before working on it.

No 110 volt outlet or lights works in 94 jayco 1406 except air conditioner. Beakers is on, Fuses changed - still does not work


A/C is most likely 12 volt, lights/outlet are on a coverter, could be the fuse in the actual converter OR the converter is bad (they are subject to high heat so failures are not uncommon). Most likely not a user serviceable issue!
