We recently picked up our new 13' and camped our way back from Backus to Vermont. We're delighted with the Scamp
but have a few issues we need advice about. The fridge
worked fine on AC the first few days, but prepping yesterday for a weekend trip I discovered it wouldn't function on AC (plugged in over night at home to pre-cool it). In the process of troubleshooting I discovered that the AC wiring in the trailer has the polarity reversed (polarity is correct coming into the trailer, but reversed when checked at all the trailer AC outlets). Has anyone else encountered this? I don't however think this is my fridge
problem - any other simple things I should be checking on the fridge
before I dig deeper? I have confirmed that there is power at the receptacle where the fridge plugs in.
I was skeptical of the little plastic clips that hold the exterior service panel (access to the fridge controls) and sure enough, already one of them is sprung and will not pop into its slot. Any ideas for retrofitting something more reliable or do I just need to keep a few spare clips on hand?
We learned, and very appreciatively so, a lot from this forum preparing for our pick-up trip and it looks like we still have a lot of the learning curve ahead of us. Thanks for any advice you may be able to offer.
