Looking for input troubleshooting this issue. Just started last week.
-Cent. 3000 converter with 4 x 15 amp breakers on AC side; and 2 x 20 fuses; 2x15 fuses on the batt side. Converter is hardwired into Scamp electrical
system; not plugged into outlet.
- All AC appliances work without issue. (flourescent, A/C unit, fridge)
- When Scamp
is on shore power battery lights
flicker a bit, in and out, depending how many are turned on and Overload light
on converter comes on.
- When on battery
power only, lights
flicker like crazy and Overload light
comes on and hums.
- Battery lights
include LED lights
on inside of camper (each end of kitch cupboards) and an incandescent bulb on the porch.
-Using the LED lights
only, the issue is intermittant; using the incandescent light
issue is really bad.
-I have checked fuses, breakers, connections (tho my electrical
wiring knowledge is not much beyond changing a few lights and outlets)
I've read that the circuit boards on these units go out and also can be replaced. Is it worth replacing? Scamp no longer carries these units as parts are hard to find; they now use Progressive 30A Converter, plug-in style for $203... plus I'd have to have it installed at a shop. Not sure if I can use my same panel.
Errrgggg!!!!! Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks very much.
