I woke up this morning, and had absolutely no power, even though the wall unit said there was still 1/3 power in the house batteries, which was normal, but I got nothing. Well I did get something when I tried to turn on the water pump and a light - a high pitched, continuous screeching beep. That was a new sound! :(
The owner came out to diagnose the problem, and he seemed to know what he was doing. He thought it was probably a bad breaker, and seemed surprised when they were all okay.
He said the batteries weren't getting charged except when I drove the truck or started the engine. In fact, when he pulled out the drawer over the old converter, he said, "Wow, do you smell that?" It was like a burnt match - brimstone. That might be what set off the CO2 alarm. And it might have eventually caused a fire?
I haven't been able to turn on any of the lights in the coach and have been using a small LED Coleman lantern - hard on the eyes, and it didn't give out much real light. Not so cozy. :( So I was really glad he found something that could be fixed or replaced. The new Converter is bigger than the old one. The old one is a 45 amp and the new one is an 80 amp.
Well, it's been more than four hours and the lights are still bright - YES! And I still have full batteries according to the wall display. That's a first. I'm usually very optimistic, but I have to admit this issue has had me a bit worried. I'm soooo hoping this is the end of it. Keep your fingers crossed.
From Me and My Dog, have a great Tuesday night, everyone! :)
