SOURCE: Connecting Leviton Decora light switch.

At the switch you have a feed wire coming in this brings in power which originates in the electric panel. You also have a feed or feeds goings out to other lts or switches, this you seem to have on the switch. instead of the closet switch loop.undo all the wires. find the only hot this is the one wire you can touch to the others and make different lts come on i reccomend getting a electric tester to do this. FInd the wire that goes to the closet lt. Once your sure put it to the side. wirenut all other wires together with the hot wire. this makes all other switches independantly hot. connect the hot to the switch and the closet lt to switch. I HOPE THIS MAKES SOME SENSE TO YOU . let me know if i can help

Open neutral. check the fixture/switch closest to the bkr panel that is not working for a bad connection in a wire nut, if not there, move to next fixture/switch closer to the panel

SOURCE: Leviton Single Pole Switch with Pilot Light Model 277W Box

Depends on whether you want the pilot to glow when the circuit is live (the main light is on) or to glow when the circuit is off. (The switch can be used either way, and I have used this switch in both configurations at different places.)

The wiring diagram is on the inside of the box.

In indicates that if you want the pilot light to glow when the circuit is off, then you only need two wires (the live and the return, usually colored black and white, respectively). However, you also need a ground. The instructions say that you need the ground for safety (and probably legal code) reasons, but I suspect that, without the ground, the pilot light won't work in this configuration.

However, if you want the pilot light to glow when the circuit is on, you probably need a three wire configuration (plus the ground).

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Installing a Leviton 5225 switch with outlet.

A switch is wired using the hot wires only, the black wire. It is simply a break in the line so that when the switch is off no power flows and when the switch is on the power does flow.

You are correct that the middle outlet would have two black wires and two white wires.

If you want to tap into that middle outlet and run power up the wall I suggest you look into some wiremold products. Go to their website, or any home depot and check it out. Get back if you think I can help you further. I am an electrician.

Here is a link that may help you.

Is there an easyaccess to get to my heater that does not work? 2013 wildwood 26 ft. trailer


Most furnaces are held in by a couple of screws on the front of the unit. It should slide out inside the camper. However, I have found that in some cases that the exhaust tube will be stuck inside the exhaust fixture on the trailer. If your unit seems to be stuck, it is often a benefit to remove the exhaust fixture on the outside of the trailer first. When removing the furnace, be sure to:

-Turn off the gas.
-Turn off all power...AC and DC.
-Check for wasp...you don't want those little guys in the camper with you.
-Take pictures...do this if you are planning to replace parts. It is easy to confuse the wiring.

When replacing the unit:

-Do not over tighten the gas line...over tightening the line will cause it to leak.
-before completing the installation, turn the gas on and bubble test gas connections...this is easily done with a mixture of dish detergent and water. Use a small paint brush to paint the solution onto the gas connections and look for bubbles.
-turn the power back on and test the unit.
-Replace screws and exhaust fixture (if removed).

You're ready to go.

How do I find a manual for a 1991 mallard skylark?


The coach will have a very generic manual then each appliance/component will have a different manual. The AC will have a manual produced by its manufacturer and the same for the refrigerator, water heater, furnace, etc. To obtain those manuals to will have to find the manufacturer, model and serial number of each item then go to the manufacturer website to their support area and download. If you are looking for a wiring diagram good luck since the manufacturers do not produce wiring diagrams for their coaches - it is a liability issue.

Some of the 110 outlets in my 1999 Damon Intruder read hot and ground reversed. the outlets used to work but no longer for what ever reason. Why may that be? And would a wiring diagram help me? Could


Your question is a little hard to decipher!
By "110 outlets" I assume you mean 110V AC Power Points.
By "read hot" I would guess that you mean an Active or Hot AC Voltage where it shouldn't be and not Red Hot.

If that is the case then you need to have an electrician test the power point outlets before someone gets an electric shock.
If you are unsure of whats what then a diagram aint going to help!

Sorry.... But Safety First
Dealing with electrical problems at these voltages can be lethal.

Now.... if you have an ohm meter you can check the wiring with the power off and yes.... a diagram would be helpful.... even for the electrician

Cheers

How do I get my Thor Freedom Elite outlets working? I have already pushed the reset button on the GFCI but stlll not working. any suggestions?


First, the GFI runs on house current aka shore power. Make sure you are plugged in! Most GFIs have a light showing power on.

Check your breaker - not a car type fuse - in the fuse panel. GFIs are nothing but a quick-disconnect in case of a short. (Quick description)

You really need a wiring diagram for this. Try and get one online or from the mfg.

Start by tracing back towards power source from GFI. Remove GFI and check for power on the wires. Be careful, it's 120vac house current. If you have power, replace the GFI. If no power, look at the diagram and proceed to the next outlet/GFI on the same circuit. You might have to go all the way to the power distribution panel. Sooner or later you will find the open wire. Might be nothing more than a screw vibrated loose disconnecting the power feed.

How do I locate the charging system wires at the converter ?


Should have the basic schematic in your owner's manual. If not, contact the mfg and see if you can download one or have it mailed.

No luck? Google it. If persistent enough, you can find one.

Fleetwood wiring diagrams


Manufacturers do not publish wiring diagrams. The items that you have described will be controlled by a fuse located in the fuse panel next to the breakers. Next you would need to determine if you have power at the switches. From there you will need to check the connections at the fixtures and try to locate the point of failure.

Coachman encounter 2014 interior lights


RV manufacturers do not publish wiring diagrams. You will need to determine if there are other lights on the same circuit. From there determine which light is the last light in the series prior to the failed fixture and trace back from there.

Inside light won't come on


Which inside light? There are often times light switches on the wall and on the fixture. Make sure the switch on the fixture is in the on position then use the wall switch to control. If it still does not work, the check the bulb, if that is not the problem check the fuse and from there it will be a matter of tracing the problem through the circuit. RV manufacturers do not publish their wiring diagrams so you will not be able to find one. If you have to trace the circuit it is going to have to be on blind luck so to speak!

Wiring diagram for Heartland 2013 Key Largo


Wiring diagrams are not available as the manufacturers to not publish them. You have to determine which circuit the outlets are on and then from there determine the outlet prior to the failed outlet and trace back from there until you identify the point of failure. Most trailers are wired with GFI outlets with the primary GFI being in the bathroom or the kitchen and all outlets wired after that point are controlled by that one primary. If you do not have power go to the primary and press the reset button.
