Need Help with a 1978 Southwind - Electrical by Tony
Post New Message I have a 28' 1978 Southwind, and no operators manuals. One thing troubling me right now is that when I plug her into house power, I can only get the outlets in the kitchen to work. None of the other outlets, including the one for the refrigerator, will fire. Now, the idiot who had this rig before me screwed up the battery wiring, so that he has the positive lead to the third house battery hooked up in a funny way to the second house battery (because there ISN'T a third battery), and the negative lead for Battery 3 is not connected. All the 12v stuff seems to work (except the refrigerator). Odd thing: if you are on house power, only the front roof AC will work, but on generator, only the REAR AC will work...and if you plug the house outlet into the jack connecting to the generator, both of them work. Is the battery connection the reason it is like this? All fuses appear fine, and the power converter seems to be chugging along and charging everything just fine (if the little red light is to be believed). Anybody have any notions about this? I wouldn't think the 12v battery connections would affect the 110v house outlets, but there we are. Let me know. Thanks! Tony - Auburn, WA
