I have a 2000 23ft comfort travel trailer, it is pluged into electrical, all lights work, but I do not get any power from outlet plugs. I checked breakers & fuses, no outlets work.


On my trailer the gfci is a seperate button in the fuse panel that shuts down the 120v outlets, all the lights run off the 12v so they continue to work, does your microwave and ac work?

I have a springdale travel trailer with a dometic ac system. When I turn the air on, with the fan in the auto position on the thermostst, the compressor turns on and runs, but the fan does not. The...


Neither.
The fan should run in the 'auto' position.
If it runs (on hi and lo settings) then I doubt if anything is wrong with the fan motor.
I would think your thermostat is bad and needs replacing.

How do auto reverse brakes on a trailer work?


Forward Braking
The actuating force for the wheel brake is generated during braking of the towing vehicle, as the trailer tends to overrun and
pushes the drawtube in. This force is transmitted to the expander devices in the wheel brakes via the overrun lever, brake rod,
compensator and brake cables.
As a result, the brake shoes are pressed against the brake drum. The resulting friction from contact of brake linings and drum
produces the required braking.
On releasing the brake on the towing vehicle, the drawtube returns to its original position and the brake shoes are released from
the drums by means of the tension springs.
Auto-Reverse
During reversing the drawtube is pushed in and the brake shoes press against the drum (as in forward braking).
When the trailer wheels are in reverse, the reverse rotation, combined with the friction generated from drum and lining contact,
causes the sliding shoe to slide on its carrier towards the adjuster.
This displaces the sliding shoe radially inwards away from the drum. The drawtube may then travel fully to its end stop without
applying further force to the brake shoes and the trailer can be reversed without any difficulties.
Changing direction from reverse to forward travel results in the drawtube being pulled out, allowing the sliding shoes to be
returned to the forward braking position by means of the tension springs.

Wiring issue on a 1965 Roadrunner Travel Trailer


Generic comments follow:

I'm not real clear on what you are asking ... I can almost guarantee you that you will not find a wiring diagram for your trailer.

Your travel trailer operates on 12 V DC. Your frig, the heater, all the lights, radio, all 12 volts. Your running lights should be getting power from the tow vehicle. While towing, the tow vehicle should be charging the battery. You may find some 110 volt lights inside, but probably not. To keep your battery charged, you have 110 Volt AC power coming in. Your frig may run on 110 V AC but it still needs 12 volts for control. Your Air Cond and Microwave and TV (if equipped) will al,so run on 110.

Regarding the three wires from the battery, there should be a battery charger close by your 12 Volt fuse panel. Even though the trailer is a "vehicle" dont depend on using the frame as a ground like you would in a car. So, that accounts for two of the three - a red or black and a white wire. There may be some dedicated line that the battery supplied to account for the third wire.

There should be a emergency breakaway switch on the front of the trailer. This is a switch with a pull pin. If the trailer breaks away, the pin is pulled out by the tow vehicle and the electric brakes should be automatiocally applied to stop the trailer. This switch should be powered, unfused, directly from the traailer battery and go directly to the electric brakes - presuming you have this feature.

Be aware, this trailer power supply was built and designed for a life style far different from that we enjoy today. If you have a 30 amp cord, as I suspect, 30 amps is enough to charge your battery, run your 12 volt items, run a TV and AC or TV and Micro or Micro and AC but not much else. As you are aware, you have two circuits built with #12 and they are probably protected with a 15 amp breaker though the #12 would be protected with 20 amp breaker in a house. The cord is only rated for 30 amps and it may be tired, unless you have replaced it.

I hope I have provided a little insight to your situation. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

Depends on wattage demand of ac unit. VXA=W 110x20amps=2,0200 Watts. A 2,00 watt generator is too small. Best go for a 3,kw genset. A 5 kw will leave you room to run appliances and the ac simultaneously., otherwise you will need to watch your margin usage. I think 4.5 kw gensets are also available. Happy trails.
