I fully admit to being an electro-dweeb and I need some advice. After four days of shore power at silver falls and a day driving to the ferry in Vancouver, our battery
should have been A-1. Not so. In the ferry lineup there was nothing, no lights
in the trailer, nothing. Then it was on to the ferry and off again at Vancouver Island where I noticed water spilling out of the side of the trailer. A quick check revealed the pump, switched on when there was no power, now was pumping all our water out onto the highway.
So we had lights
for the night, and took the morning ferry home. Within about four hours, with nothing on to draw power, the battery
Now I'm assuming the battery
is toast as it should hold a charge longer than that, and I know the old inverter is not the best (Per has recommended changing it, but as I say, I'm an electro-dweeb) but I have no idea why I had no power in the ferry lineup, only to have it resurrect itself on the crossing. Any guesses?
Thanks for the help.
