I have a 1985 16' Casita
. It is pristine. I haven't used it for almost two years, and I'm thinking of selling it. I went out to check out all the systems. I flipped the switch for the pump (for a second) and it ran. It is actuall a little over a year old, and I've never used it. I ran shore power to the Casita
to run the AC,(God it's hot here) and continued checking items. I put water in the fresh water holding tank, flipped the switch for the pump, and it didn't work.
I checked all related fuses and they were fine. I bypassed the switch thinking there may be a problem there, and still nothing. I ran jumpers from the pump itself directly to the battery
and it ran. I checked all wires and they are fine.
I did notice that the mini panel was hot. I mean to hold to hold. As I was looking for other suspects that might be related to this problem, the breaker on the mini panel tripped. I turned off the AC, let the mini panel cool, hit the breaker and had shore power again but it got very hot again. I don't have a multi meter, so that kind of limits me to testing, but I'm thinking there is a problem with the mini panel . The power comes into it, then out to the converter. Has anybody had a similar problem? Is there a solution to replacing the Mini panel.? I thought about putting a 20amp GFCI outlet there instead, thinking it has a built-in overload breaker. Would this work?
Answers, I need answers. Did I mention I'm selling it. Any interested parties can email me I suppose at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Just make sure you are clear in the subject matter, or I may not open it.
