1988 pace arrow electrical problem

I can put a hot battery in my rv, and it will usually crank. But, I have a small surface mounted compass on my dashboard, and when I turn on my ignition to crank, that compass goes crazy, spinning forward,backwards, all around, and want stop, and this compass has no electrical going to it, it's just sitting up there, and also, several of my gauges on my instrument read incorrectly. I'm looking for a starting point to try to troubleshoot this problem, and don't know where to start. I had the alternator tested, and it tested to be good. Please give me some help..........thanks RANDY MORGAN

The Alternator only comes into play AFTER the vehicle is running so I would bench test the starter for excessive starter draw. If the starter tests good I would change out the Solenoid. That may explain the guages reading incorrectly. As to the compass, possibly a shorted wire near there could cause it to spin. Try relocating it.

Hot Water Heater in 1991 Pace Arrow RV is not working


If you look on the outside of the RV, you will find the vent for the water heater behind and access door. There usually is a drain plug and valve located as well. Generally they will be tucked away under the kitchen sink area with internal access as well. You will need to find where the valve that shuts the water off to the unit is and turn it on. Most times the water heater is either electric or propane. But sometimes they are only propane. Once your find the access door, you will know where the water heater is. You can also contact Fleetwood who makes the Pace Arrow to see if they have any information on your unit. Usually your unit info or trim number will be located on a little plaque right by the entrance to the RV. You will need this when you contact them. Hope this helps.
