Thanks again, Rivrduk
Mercy. There isn't a person on this forum that doesn't learn something new every day. I have been in electronics for 52 years and I am just beginning to appreciate how little I know.

Oh, I try to run the gene at least 1/2-1 hour/month. which reminds me....

Here is a tip for all of us! When describing either a problem OR a fix, please mention what your RV is, its age and model. After all, the bay behind the drivers door may not be quite the same on my RV as it is on yours.

Keep plugging along and have fun!

WOOODYDEL IS 100% right. Get to know someone who is competant and follow him around as he troubleshoots. Some folks join RV clubs and meet others who can help and/or have the same problems. Some of the larger dealerships have groups you can join.

Mine is a 2000 tradewinds 300 HP Cat diesel pusher, model 7373 with 35 thousand miles. I have owned it just two months and have used it locally twice. Dont want to take it on a trip until i learn more about it. I live in Oklahoma and i am sure i will have some questions on winterization processes later. I intend to purchase new tires all the way around before any trip, as the ones on now are the original tires. They look good, but i know age and not mileage is the reason for new tires. I found one nut loose on one of the house batteries yeaterday. I guess the inverter charges both the house batteries and the engine batteries, I do have solar panels to also charge the house batteries, but they are now covered as i put up a large carport to cover the MH. Thanks for your help. Rivrduk
