I own a 1995 jayco 1006. I notice the red cable by the lift which manual expalains to only lift untill almost tight has became disconnected from the body of trailer. If I hold it in place and then stop when tight I have a hard time getting the door in place unless I raise it higher than the red cable says I should. What kind of damage am I risking by doing this?

Also how do I use the converter to charge battery? Does it matter what the converter switch is turned on to? AC? Batt?
Thank You all in advance.

Howdy and welcome to iRV2. https://irv2.infopop.cc/images/action.gif

I didn't own a Jayco so I can't answer your question. We have a lot of Jayco folks who visit the site so I am sure you will get a answer soon..

Have fun and enjoy all your visits.

My converter in my 1996 Jayco 1206 didn't charge the battery. I doubt if yours does either. I got rid of the trailer about 18 months ago but I seem to remember that only the largest Jaycos in 1996 came with a converter that would charge the battery. My owner's manual listed about 3 different converters. Mine was the middle sized one. Only the largest one would charge.

My cable pulled out from the roof shortly after I bought it. I screwed it back into the plywood next to the orignal (stripped) hole. If you overlift you risk damaging the lift mechanism. Between my Wife & I, we missed one of the latches. After 3 corners got about 6" up with 1 corner still down I figured something was wrong. I ended up damaging one of the cable tubes in the front. Fortunately it only cost me about $20 for a new one.

I can't help you much with the indicator cable but mine works fine on my Clipper. Mine did pull loose one time also. Maybe the prevous owner on your camper put it back on and made it a little tight?

As far as the battery, many are charged by the TV through a 6 wire connection. Four wires are used for the PUP driving lights and the other two charge the battery. If you only have the 4 wire connection, then it is not being charges by the TV and as Explorer said many converters do not charge the battery. You will either have to add some sort of wiring to charge the battery with your TV or charge the battery with an external charger. The AC/Batt switch on the converter only affects the current provided by the converter.
