Last winter somewhere out west I thought my eyes were going, the lights were dim. Checked the power moniter and sure enough, 12V now down to 8V. After checking breakers/fuses, and now getting dark there was one thing left to check. Went back to the door for the electic in fear of seeing a converter cooked. Lucky it was only the A/C plug came loose from the A/C outlet. The engineer who disigned that set up should be fired. They plug the converter to the box upside down. Plugged it back in and we were back in business. I latter put clear silicone around the plug, to prevent it from coming lose when I pull out and put back the A/C cable to hook up to the CG.

Hey with out these problems what else would we do for fun.

Sometimes I wonder what kind of engineers design these thing! Don't they take the application into consideration? They are most likely, not RV'er..

I suspect they are given a select list of itmes they can use, with 'directions' and thats the best they can do. No 'real' engineer would work for an RV mfr, IMHO. They couldn't pay enough !!
