2006 Prowler Camper Electrical Issue

I have a 2006 Prowler Camper. I just just bought a brand new 12 volt battery. Two days later it's dead. I have no lights but I am also plugged into power pole since the battery is dead. Does that mean my converter is bad. I don't know what else to do. Please help.

    I think your battery replacement and trouble code are coincidental crazy as it may sound but it happens.

I tidied up the question a bit :>)

You have a regulator / control box issue. You have two systems;

You have a towable trailer. A vehicle battery in it that gets charged as you drive from a cable in the plug. When you stop that battery ceases to charge. No power in. If you use lights or use an inverter to take the 12 volts and turn it into 110 volts to run appliances, the battery is draining until it becomes flat.

So,..... we bring mains power hook up into the equation.

The mains power should run all your mains 110 volt appliances and provide a trickle charge to keep that battery topped up, but the battery is NOT actually being used, just being charged.

So that is the theory, somewhere you have a piece in the jigsaw puzzle that isn't working. You have a controller box that isn't doing what it is supposed to do. I don't know the trailer, you probably need a dealer that does. Fleetwood went bankrupt in 2009.

If you Google

There are wiring diagrams. I see a battery disconnect solenoid, but all of the dot .it Italian and .fr French sites as scam sites. There are also RV Groups that might be more help than me.

This might help

Hope the information helps. A short term solution would be a full size batter charger charging your battery overnight after disconnecting it from the negative lead so just the battery is being topped up. You don't need an inverter if you have mains hook up.

SOURCE: Bought a new battery and my 1992 buick lesabre still won't start

i had the same problem on my '92 Lesabre ltd. All you need to do it is get the rust off your battery cables, use the wire brush to scrub the contact surfaces. also use a wrench to tighten the bolt to the battery, take precaution as to not to tighten too much , it might beak the battery threads.

I think your battery replacement and trouble code are coincidental crazy as it may sound but it happens. Ford came out with a computer update to repair the p0506 problem. This code is a common problem. The only way to fix it is to have your vehicles computer reprogrammed with the update. Either at a Ford dealer or a shop that has the equiptment to do this procedure. Not many shops have this equiptment.

SOURCE: battery keeps going dead. 06 ls430

With the engin not running and the key off, lift the hood and disconnect the positive lead on the battery. Then touch the lead back to positive terminal on the battery. If a spark is seen, there is something still on in the car. Could be the power mirror switch, seat heaters or even a car phone. Trial and error to find it.

Sorry I can't be more specific but that is the test.

Good luck.

Check your battry voltage with it plugged in should be about 13.3 plugged in and that means it's charging. Unplug rig and if it's below 10.5 nothing 12v will work , get a new battery

1983 fleetwood prowler, 19ft model. How are the two switches wired for the water pump? We have developed a short, and cannot run the water pump from either switch.

Try running to the pump a known 12 volt sorse directly to the pump,if pump is working check to see if power is running to the switch or switches,sometimes the switches are fine but the pump is dead.uou could always run a new switch from a known 12volt source that is tapped into.good luck,Gary
