Today, I finally replaced the monitor light outside the switches panel.
Much to my surprise, when I looked at the back of the lamp I found this wire pinched in the housing.
Looked like a fire waiting to happen. That might or might not explain the brown color the housing has turned???

PLEASE excuse me if this is a post already see. I am new to this and I find it very hard to navigate. SO, I have a 2008 Win. Aspect. Bats are brand new, no 12v dc in cabin or at fuse box/circuit breakers,generator won't start, all fuses are good. There is only power when plugged into 120v AC. Any ideas? thanks

I had this problem this past March on my Jayco Precept. We had traveled to Florida and stayed for 2 weeks, we had no issues on the trip down. When we left the campground and disconnected from the 50 amp power, we had spotty 12 volt power in the coach. Sometimes the DC worked, mostly not. Genny wouldn't start, lost power whenever we turned the coach off. When we stopped in Ft Pierce, FL for the night, we had no DC power at all in the coach, we checked all the fuses, batteries were fine and at full charge. No problems if the coach engine was running or plugged into 50 amp. After taking the coach to a local RV repair shop, they found that the ground wire from the batteries had broken off where it attached to the chassis. They reattached it and problem solved. A little less than a month later we traded it in for our new to us Itasca.

thanks so much, that's what I suspect too. I am going to run a jumper from bat negative to ground and see what happens rather try to trace for a break.

If you look at your ceiling you will also notice things melted there as well. Do yourself a favor and replace that with an LED before you do further damage. Looks like your fixture might be salvagable.

Hi Lovedods
Sorry for not getting with you sooner. Sounds like your inverter is producing the DC current to supply your coach but for some reason your house batteries are not. Have your house batteries ever been replaced?
I would check them first. Check the battery terminals for corrosion or a loose connection. Let me know what you find. I you haven't already fixed it and the batteries and terminals check out good I will call Winnabago and discuss this with them and we will get to this resolved.
Jesse

NO 12V issue 2008 Aspect. : I jumped the battery disconnect relay from the + side of relay and got the juice everywhere I should get it. The part is on its way from Winabego @ $88.20 + tax and freight charges. THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS AND PICTURE of the relay and solenoid video.

I LOVE BULL DOGS ESPECIALLY THEIR PUSHED IN FACES. By the way, my problem with no 12v was the battery disconnect relay.

I don't know if my previous posts/replys got on the threads but regarding my no 12v problem, I just want to thank the people who provided video of how to jump relay and provided photo of relay/solenoid location video. The problem turned out to be the bad battery relay disconnect and I already replaced it. All is fine. Unfortunately, I found a different supplier would have sold me one for about $28.00 less than what I paid Win. Industries. Thanks again and I hope this will help those who might have the same problem.

Basement A/C - bring Cond Fan Cap out for future service

I just dropped the Coleman A/C unit so I could remove the covers and lube the Condenser Fan Motor and its pillow block outer bearing. I removed the condenser blower assy and cleaned and serviced it then reinstalled it.
I noticed that all other motor capacitors were in the electric compartment so they could be replaced without dropping the whole AC assy. So I added about 8" of wire to the cap leads and moved the running capacitor into the electrical compartment. The running capacitor on PSC motors is a normal service item. I don't know why the compressor caps are in the E Comp and the blower was not.
Now the cap is a 20 minute max change out. Not 4 hours involving jacks and wrenches.
