Smile Ed n' Phyllis checking in!

Hi to all RV'ers! Wow, what a great RV website! I have been a member of a few RV chat groups before, but none as good as iRV2! I have over 45 years of RV experience, have a Fleetwood 33 foot Coronado class A since 1995, it has been an excellent coach and sometimes live-aboard. "Mostly" retired, we are tempted to go mini-diesel pusher class A, that is how I found this group. I look forward to helping members with electrical issues and other areas of motorhome maintenance as I have a strong background in electrical and mechanical systems repair.
Happy travels to all, Ed and Phyllis.

Welcome to this site. We sailed out of Southampton a couple of years ago on the Crown Princess for a British Isles Cruise. What a wonderful trip. A couple of years ago while in Clermont, Florida for the winter, we met a very nice British couple (who live in France). They still own property in England around London somewhere. They had been coming to USA for several years and traveled in a small motorhome. They said would not be coming back anymore (for various reasons) and we will miss them.

Smile Hello again everyone, message for Steve.

Hello again all, I am overwhelmed! What a great group! Steve, it is a coincidence, but I will be looking at a National 7370 soon, and I will try to get a peek at the technical manual if available and review it to give you some insight as to what to check with your power tripping situation. Somewhere, I recall the National coaches had problems with the 30 amp circuit breakers crapping out early in life, since so much electrical hardware these days is imported and of inferior quality. I have replaced a number of crappy circuit breakers, some only a few months old. You might try measuring the input current to the 12 volt DC 30 amp ammeter with a series ammeter, or even a clamp on magnetic ammeter (not very accurate, but in this case, it doesn't matter) while actuating the systems, to get an idea if the CB is tripping pre-maturely or if an over-load situation exists. If this test is too much for you to handle, have a tech make this test as you actuate the systems that are kicking out the battery interface. I will be getting back to you, but it may be a few weeks. Let me know if you are making progress! P.S. We just got back from Europe and London was more crowded than I can remember! I didn't see any big motorhomes like yours, only smaller class C's which are very popular on the Continent.
Cheerio, Ed and Phyllis.
