If this box is part of an RV, the factory has probably also provided a transformer and rectifier to supply ~12 VDC when connected to standard AC mains. Switching it to the twelve volt setting should be all you need to do. If it isn't cooling, check your breaker box to see if it has tripped the breaker circuit it is on. If you find no tripped breakers, it is possible that the rectifier has failed or possibly the lousy wiring one finds mostly in RVs.
If there is outside access to the area of the fridge, open it and check for a good-sized transformer in that general area. If you can locate it, you should be able to make some measurements with a cheap digital multimeter to locate the problem.

What powers the slide out ?


If you are referring to a camper, the 12 volt auto battery powers them. Fully charge the battery first. there is a switch inside the camper to power the motors be sure its turned on. A lot of campers seem to have a problem with poor wire connections and broken wires. clean all connections check for broken wires and check fuses. good luck.

Question: I have a trailer camper it has a Dometic Rm 2652 Ameri. refrig.


If I remember right on those, the system works off 12 volt--120 volt-- or propane (LP gas). have you tried one of the other power source to run it off of?? If you get the same type cooling results the problem is probably a small leak in the freon system. Those use special internal gas. When I worked for GE the only way to fix them was to replace the complete cooling system which came pre-charged with the special internal gas. Quite expensive after the warranty. Now if you switch power source and one of the other sources make it work the problem will be with the type power you were using when it failed to cool properly. Many people that had system problems with those camper type refrigerators removed them and installed a small regular dorm style refrigerator that could only be run off a 120 volt power system. You would need a 12 volt to 120 converter to run it while on the road if thats what you want to do.

Electric heater problems.


Plug in a ceramic 120 volt or oil type space heater to keep trailer warm. Most travel trailers are propane only, they do not have electric heat strips. I would bet that is why it only blows cold air.

Our Dometic refridgerator in our 1992 camper


I would start there before replacing any parts. The circuit boards require 12volts to operate the refrigerator. If you have a good 12 volts and the LP tanks are full and the flame lights but the unit does not cool then you probably have a bad cooling unit. But start with the obvious issues first.

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

My tent is unsafe, I have no idea how to make completely safe. I like to go camping in the northern woods, bears like to sniff and bump my tent.


Are you keeping food inside the tent?
Bears usually will not come near humans unless there is food smell coming from within the tent.
I also camp in the north woods and generally its the coyotes that are daring enough to come into a campsite. Also they use coon dogs for hunting bear which falls in public camp season and they roam about to track bear. My personnal best defense is to keep my chainsaw just inside the door as being a camp host I find myself being alone in site untill my guests arrive. The chain saw noise is a good defense to scare off anything because its very loud .And yes Ive actually had to run it one night in Particular when my site was surrounded by a pack of coyotes and they were right outside. KEEP ALL FOOD AWAY FROM TENT AT ALL TIMES. Raccoons also are very daring and will come on site even when your there if they smell food and are smart enough to open water jugs with their paws the trick to keep them out of your food is to put the coolers under the bench part of the picnic tables so the lids cant be opened.Im a very ex. camper and can give tips all day long
