Look for a GFCI (2 pushbuttons) on one of your electrical outlets. push both to see if they'll reset. Also, look for your fuse panel and see if you might have a blown 12v fuse for the lights.

Lost 120 volts on coachmen Somerset dreamcatcher 32.5 while hooked up to power pole. still have 12 volts.all converter fuses and power panel circuit breakers good. Power from pole is good.

First, I'm not a Coachmen RV Tech. (but most DC to AC inverters are not brand specific.)
* Check inverter fuse (on actual inverter frame). Replace.
* Check DC voltage at inverter. Should be 12 (or 24 VDC) depending on your system battery supply and inverter.
* Check the DC cable connections; crusty, dirty? Cut all power. Remove and clean terminals. Re-connect and check.
* DC okay? Check 110 VAC power at output of inverter. No power? Replace inverter. (possible power spike damaged it or it over heated)
* 110 VAC okay? Check the power panel breakers. If stuck in middle then turn all the way off to reset and turn all the way back on to activate. Check AC power at outlet(s)
* Still no power (at outlet)? Check all outlets. If some still works then there is a problem with the power (wires) distribution. You will need an electrician to trace the wires back to the break in circuit.
* Be safe. check your warranty and call for service.
* Note; your inverter may be on a separate warranty.

My holiday Rambler 2016 admiral XL keeps losing charge in the start up battery what is causing it

We dare not present with you at your location, so we can only guess, but here are some thoughts.
1) You may have a bad battery. Have it checked.
2) You may have a current draw, like for some item that uses electricity all the time.
For example, an electric clock, a TV set, a burglar alarm, a smoke/carbon-monoxide alarm.
3) You may choose to install a manual "shut -off" switch in your system that will shut off all electricity when you are not using the RV.
God bless your efforts.

Have a 1978 Holiday Rambler motorhome that needed a new waterpump. The first mechanic took it apart and bailed. Everything else has been done but csnnot figure out where the 3 belts go. Its a 7.5ltr.V8...

AC may be the 3rd belt. 1 belt may be water pump & power steering, the other belt may be water pump & alternator. Water pump usually has 2 belts for redundancy , that is if one belt breake , the other belt will still turn the water pump. All 3 belts must go on the bottom pulley (crankshaft)

Wiring diagram for a 1988 sunline travel trailer.some of the light switches and outlets have no power going to them.what could be the problem?

Your trailer has two electrical systems, 12v and 120v. The 12v system has a battery and perhaps a converter/charger to power it. The 120v system must he hooked up to 'shore power.' Both systems have their own protection. The 12v system has a fuse panel, check for power at each fuse. 12v wall switches are often smaller and don't look like typical 120v switches like in a house.

The 120v system has a breaker box and circuit breakers. Reset each breaker by turning off then on again. In addition, the 120v outlets might have a GCFI outlet near a sink. It often is wired first in a breaker circuit, thus giving GCFI protection to other outlets in the circuit. Test the GCFI and make sure it clicks off and can be reset.

We have electricity to operate the microwave and plugs but the lights are operating off of the batteries. Is this a converter problem? If so is it a fuse on the converter? Doesn't appear the aux...

The microwave and outlets are on a 115-120vAC source running through the breakers box. The lights are 12vDC running through the converter then to the fuse panel. Locate the inverter in the compartments up front, possibly behind a panel that can slide or screws to hold the panel. Depending on the Mfr if the inverter, you should see a blade style buss fuse on the side, typically near the 12vDC output. Use a multimeter to check for the 120vAC input and 12vDC output. AC power-yes and DC power-no, check the fuse, replace if necessary. If the fuse is good, the inverter has blown and needs to be replaced. If you have AC & DC power on the inverter, go to the batteries and check for voltage without the inverter supplying power. Pull the fuse off the inverter or switch the battery disconnect switch. If the batteries have little to no voltage, cells may be dead. Take the batteries to a local auto parts store to get checked to see if the battery needs a charge or replacement.

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

Carbon monoxide detector

There is a good chance that the detector is being set off by fumes. This could be from hairspray, cleaning solutions, air fresheners, etc... Most aerosols use propane as a propellant and this will absolutely (and should) set the alarm off.

Elec. hooked up. new battery. lights will go very dim. compressor on a/c stops working but fan still blows. can turn off a/c and converter breakers and lights come back bright. if I leave for a few days...

there is a sort some were and it will need to be rectified before it over heats or catches fire.check wiring without the battery on with a meter. turn every thing off and test lines then turn one thing on test then turn on something else keep doing this on all electrical equipment till you find the unit at fault.

1989 damon escaper ultrasport, at full hookup site A/C working fine until it just shut off. At that moment I was programming fridge because it wasn't cooling. Might be irrevelant but fridge now...

Your AC (air conditioner) would only run on AC (alternating current - shore power) so there would be a circuit breaker. Fuses are for DC (direct current - batteries).

That said, 16A is a very odd number for a circuit breaker (or fuse).

Your AC will only run if you are connected to shore power or have a generator. (Very large inverter and a lot of house batteries is technically possible but very unlikely and it wouldn't have been built that way).

If your AC actually draws 16A then being connected to a 30A outlet is fine, I have actually connected mine to a 20A outlet at home to test it but I made sure nothing else was turned on fridge, heaters, water heater etc).
