Thanks Floyd, a little tough love with my rachet and it worked, not at first on battery power but then finally it sputtered and charged forward and began on house power. I ran it for a bit, opened the taps and flushed the toilet, clearing the antifreeze and then unplugged the trailer, crossed my fingers and it IS working on battery!! YEAH!! It does sound a bit rougher right now though, a bit louder than I remember from last year. Think that is ok?
I think like you suggested Carol, I may need to get a new a battery, it does seem to work and the panel shows it is well but I did clean the heads and tighten the leads this morning to see if that was the problem, and saw that was originally bought in the spring of '05 by the previous owner. I am excited again now, but I was a bit down yesterday as last year after I bought it the fridge
stopped, smelled of amonia and I had to replace it before I headed out camping. I did that myself though which was quite rewarding. Then when I was out camping for the first time, I found a crack in one of the tires
and decided to replace all four, double axle
, so the cost of my trailer had already gone up. I was regretting giving the Trillium
to my son...hahaha.
This was a great fix, and I will get a battery soon, but for the weekend I think I am OK!!! Thanks for the help!
