Propane/co fuse

Actually it on the wall opposite the fridge which is the TV cabinet with the woofer in it. Lots of wires there.
I’ll walk over to the coach and start tracing the wiring and hope I can find the in line fuse
Thanks

Thanks for the lead. Unfortunately there was no inline fuse as the wire quickly disappeared into a loom and out of reach and sight. Still can't find the fuse. All the fuses in the Battery Control Center and the Power Control Center are fine. In the wiring instructions for the Safe-T-Alert sensor warned not to reverse the wiring or else you could end up with a flat chassis battery. I was puzzled by that as I expected it to be powered by the house batteries.

New Owner of a Used Astoria

We purchased a 2011 Thor Astoria 40KT with just over 29K miles on Monday before Thanksgiving and arrived home with her two days later. On Black Friday, we took her in to be winterized (Illinois) and will have her oil changed and everything else checked/changed as needed.

This our first RV and I consider myself lucky to have found this thread. I've read every post on every page over the past week and learned a lot already. Thank you all for sharing!

We are retired and planning to go full-time as soon as we sell our house.

Welcome to the club! Immediately after purchasing our Astoria in fall 2018, I read all 1,000 some odd posts on this thread too, lol! Lots of great info over the years. I also found reading all the owners manuals for the on-board equipment was invaluable.

We love our Astoria and wish you luck with yours as well.

2011 Damon Astoria 3470

New to us & we love it! We've got a few bugs to work out though. Current issue is sun & night shades. Sun was working, night was not. Read somewhere that we should change the switches between sun & night to determine if switch or motor issue. In the process of changing the switching, the sun (working) switch fell apart. We think it's back together correctly but now it's not working.
It's like there's no power at all now - to either the sun or night shade. We would like to order new switches/motors for both. Does anyone know how to?
Any and all suggestions appreciated!

Did you verify there is power to the switches? Use a 12v test light. One of those wires to the switches should be hot at all times. If you don't have a hot wire, check your fuses. If you do have power, move on to the switches and then the motors.

Replacing the original refrigerator with a residential one

We had a Norcold NA811 originally and switched to a Norcold NA10LX less than a year ago. The new, still under warranty, refrig is now not functioning correctly. The service tech was on the phone with Norcold tech for 30 minutes. Bottom line the mobile tech said he wouldn’t accept the Norcold rates and he finds Norcold doesn’t pay claims quickly. He also said we can buy a small residential refrigerator for a fraction of the price.

I have heard that in the past. Has anyone on this forum replaced their refrigerator with a residential one? If so how is it working? What brand? How difficult was it to replace? A picture of the final instal would be helpful.

Steve

Awning placement

My 2007 Damon Astoria Pacifica 3774 has roof mounted awning. Would like to know if anyone has moved to sidewall mounted to reduce water pooling on roof.
If so, would you have picture of mew install. Have slide on driver side that appears to be too high to move awning.

Sorry to hear that Steve. We are still operating the original Norcold 1200 with fingers crossed. Going to install an ARP fridge defender this spring.

Our 3776 has the wall mounted awning but we don't have a slide-out on that side. I believe if you have a slide-out the awning needs to be mounted on the roof but I could be wrong.
