Does th starcraft star stream ss18rb have a water pump


If the trailer has a fresh water holding tank it will have a pump. The older units have a hand pump located next to the sink. There should be a switch located inside the camper, typically on the monitor panel. When you turn that switch on and open the faucet you should hear a vibration noise. If the switch does not illuminate that could be that the circuit is dead and the fuses will need to be checked. The pump is usually located near the sink behind an access panel that will be screwed shut.

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.

My battery keeps draining in my starcraft travel trailer evry time i put a fully charge battery in the camper in less then 2hour the battery is dead and with nothing on and all the braker off


Hello,

Charge your battery, and connect it back to the travel trailer. Use a 12volt test light to make the connection between the cable and negative terminal on the battery.

If there is something drawing power, the light will turn on. Remove the fuses from the DC fuse block 1 at a time, make note of the current rating for each fuse position. When the light goes out, the last fuse you removed is where the culprit probably lies. Now that all the fuses are out, plug each one in, individually, and see when the light comes on. Look closely at the light. Some notorious items that are left on are the antenna booster for the TV, the radio (volume turned down), and lights in the storage compartment. Some fridges will have a small heating strip between the doors. This heat strip may not be turned off with the fridge switch unless it is put into storage mode.

2 hours on a freshly charged battery is signifiant. The average Group24 deep cycle battery, in good condition, has a capacity of approx. 100Amp Hours. Most are able to sustain a load of 20 amps for about 180 minutes, around 3 hours. To deplete the battery in 2 hours, is a very significant current draw.

There are only 3 things that can singly draw down the battery that quick.
1) Furnace - but you would hear this one running.
2) DC Cooling mode on the fridge. Silent battery killer.
3) The breakaway switch for the electric brakes. When the plunger is removed, full battery voltage is applied to the brake magnets. A dual axle trailer may have 4 magnets, at 8 amps each, gives you around 32amp current draw. If pulling the fuses doesn't yield a culprit, the break-away switch is probably it. Remove the plunger, and push it back in. Watch the light as you do so.

Otherwise, look at your trailer connector. If it has been contaminated with road grime and such, it can cause a partial short between the charge and ground terminals.

Dometic refrigerator RM 2652 is not working


The fridge needs a 12 volt DC source to operate properly, which should be connected at the back of the fridge, outside behind cover. Check all fuses in your fuse panel as well. The upper controls are powered by 12 volt DC system, and that's what tells the fridge what to do.. (battery or converter)

Travel trailer a/c


Hi, W/D here.
Your unit does sound like it is low on refrigerant, but there may be another issue at play here also. Do you fave the ability to bring fresh air into the camper via the A/C? If so, were you bringing fresh air in when it froze up? Here's why I ask; Purely recirculated air has much more humidity in it than air that is coming in from the outside, even in high humidity areas. If your camper was closed up tight and recirculating air, your unit could very well freeze up. That explains why just running the fan fixed it. Contributing factors would be dirt on the coils, and low refrigerant, but ask yourself "Did we have this problem during the day when we were in and out (allowing fresh air in)?" If the A/C worked well when it was hotter, my opinion is that the issue is more of a moisture problem than a refrigerant problem. If you can allow some fresh air in the trailer by way of the A/C, I'd try that first, especially at night
Best regards, --W/D--
