Let me preface my questions with 2 statements:
(1) I'm a complete and total n00b when it comes to RVing and my rig. (I just got her a couple of weeks ago, and haven't gone camping yet). The PDI didn't exactly cover EVERYTHING, so now I have to resort to asking you wonderful folks here in IRV2.
(2) I was
gonna post my Flair questions on the Fleetwood Owners Section, but I do believe that I'd get more traffic here, and plus, there might be a couple of former Flair owners who could assist me.
My question (see pic 1). What exactly does that 30-amp socket on the left do? I know that the box on the right that you see with the black cord is the power cord supply, and I've connected it to my house via a 30-amp female/15-amp male adaptor. I know this, because after I connected it to my house, a lot of appliances can be turned on inside the RV.
I thought that left socket was for plugging in things outside the RV (like a TV or radio, etc.), but when I plugged in my boom box, there was no sound or power. (Note: I do NOT have a multimeter to test the socket).
Could it be that it's just a place to plug in the power cord for storage ????
My other question: Where exactly is the hot water heater switch? I know where the water pump switch is (on the status bar thingie above the stove), but cannot find the HW heater switch until I entered my bathroom (see pic 2 (that switch on the left) and pic 3 (a better close-up)). Is this it? I do NOT want to turn it on and find out, because I drained my HW heater tank and do not want to risk destroying the heating element.
Again, thanks a million for your help.
