I have an 85 scamp
16' and I have a few questions I have been unable to find answers for on this forum. Was wondering if someone might be willing to share some knowledge on the following:
1. The previous owner removed the Ensolite seam tape and caulked the seams. What would be a good replacement tape or would it be better to re caulk the seams?
2. The previous owner fumigated the Scamp
with the cushions in the camper. I have ordered new cushion covers, but the insecticide smell is in the foam. Is there an effective way to wash the foam cushions to remove the odor?
3. I have begun to attempt to start the furnace
. I noticed that the Furnace
only has 12v power when the battery
on the front of the trailer is connected. If the battery
is disconnected and the trailer is plugged into AC power, the Furnace
has no power yet everything else with the exception of the stereo and the furnace does. The camper was re wired by a liscenced electrician a few years ago and it appears tht is was wired this way intentionally by looking at the schematic. My question: Is this normal, or should the furnace be wired to the converter in a manner that allows it to always have power regardless if a 12 volt battery
is present or not?
Thanks in advance
