Preparing for Summer

We have owned our Residency since 2002 and have enjoyed every minute of our camping and travels, but now we have an issue with intermitant power to the center galley section of the motorhome. For no reason the power is gone then will come back on. This affects the fridge, outlets from the galley to the front seating area, and the electric to the hot water heater. Does anyone have a wiring schematic of the 1994 Thor Residency? Any ideas would be appreciated. It is good to have a place to go for ideas and info. Thank you

Welcome! You may want to change your topic to "Intermittent power in my ****". You'll probably get a lot more responses. Sorry I can't help with your electrical issue. I am electrically challenged.

Hello Bob and welcome, the first thing I would do is unplug your unit and start where the electric cord goes into the RV and take everything apart so you can check the tightness of all of your electrical connections and then inside to the electrical panel in there and the same thing, check all of your connections(breakers and ground and neutral bar) that you can find and tighten them and be sure to look for discolored wires that might of become hot. When you say it affects the fridge do you mean it switches to propane sensing loss of 120vac? Let us know what you find , hope this helps.

Still Looking!!!

Thanks for your replies. Wiring is so concealed it is difficult to trace. This affects only the center of the coach. Don't have much hair left to pull out so hope I find this solution soon.

Hi Bob! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the bunch!

I can't help with your questions, but I would suggest that you post questions over in the appropriate areas of the forum, in the case go to "Owner's Forums", then "Thor Industries". You will get much better results that way. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Thank you. I did post on Thor Industries group site. Waiting for a reply. May have to break down and take it to an expert repairman.
