peg,
welcome to irv2...
this is an entertaining thread...
it would help us a lot if we knew more about your sea view.
you can update your ''signature block'' with this info.
i hope you have the problem that your first post was about fixed.

Thanks Dan L. i fixed my signature and added the type of RV i have but heck don't know too many of those details you listed out.

I am not doing something right on the post i know i have replied twice and given details of what is wrong but i sure don't see it anywhere.

The problem was the new batteries were completely dead. We do think the master switch has a short to drain them like that.

You left out the most important part of the advice:

"WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, read the instructions."

There is the WAG and the SWAG method.

WAG is a Wild a#$ Guess, and a SWAG is where you read the manual and is a Scientific Wild A#$ Guess.

Most of the time I just WAG it and end up in trouble.
