SOURCE: when u are driving down the road u will lose all

Patty, you may need to check your fuses and make sure they all are properly pushed in. Does the car act different when it does this? I think you may have a loose wire somewhere in your wiring harness around the steering column. The only way to know for sure is by checking them.

Generac guardian rv generator starts and runs but after a couple minutes the power stops.....generator still runs??

Usually the generator will shut down if the ac is not present coming out of the generator. You stated that it still runs but no power on the output. Check your breakers first to make sure they are working properly. Depending on what board you have you can check to see if ac is present getting back to the board as well. If your board does not have this then they are using the frequency as a safety disconnect feature. That would lead you back to the regulator or loose connection or..dirty slip rings if this unit has brushes.

We had a power surge from the campground electrical hookup. Now our usually quiet ac in the rv is running very noisy. What could cause this?

A power surge can trash the motor inside the compressor and the inside fan motor. Now comes the question will the repairs cost less than a whole new unit?

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating

also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

this is one of those questions that we all dread and we would all be here goes...the most likely cause is going to be a faulty ignition swtch,you can still turn the wheels but no power as the engine thinks you have switched it off.this would never show up on any diagnostic computer........but as i say its just a guess.....and without replacing the switch, you will never know.....seems expensive,replacing bits on a whim.

I have a durotherm air conditioner on my rv when i turn on the air conditioner the low voltage light comes on

Hi. I can help you. The voltage coming into your RV is determined by a few factors including the size of the power cord you use to bring power into your RV and the voltage available at the outlet. A voltage drop is common when there are lots of power draws occurring at the same time as is often the case in hot weather. You could ask your RV park manager to have the voltage checked as it can often be increased at the transformer on the nearby power pole.

That said for outside of your RV, lets go inside. If you are using a number of electrical appliances at once you may be causing the voltage drop. You can go to any home depot or similar store and purchase a voltage meter which will allow you to check and see what impact each item in your RV has on the voltage.

Laptop LCD Screen won't come on and computer keeps rebooting

Try checking the inverter, if that is intermittent, it could short the system and cause the symptoms you are describing.

Unit shuts off automatically after power on.

You have an internal short in the electrical line. your wall a/c [120 volts] goes inside and is converted [changed] to DC [ like a super battery] There are a lot of connections coming out of this POWER SUPPLY[super battery] to FEED other electrical circuit. ANY one of the circuits can demand more then power supply can give and will cause it to SHUT DOWN [turn off to protect itself]
unless u know what u are doing [" DANGER!! wILL rOBINSON, DANGER!!] you should not mess with it.
