I had all afternoon yesterday to hook up our new to us Scamp
13. I turned the gas on, lit both burners successfully. I don't have a leak detector, but left the gas valve open for about an hour and used my built in leak sniffer around the lines and couldn't smell anything. Dumped a bucket of water into the fresh tank, had some trouble getting the hand pump primed, but got it to work. Checked for leaks
and everything looked good. The hand pump won't hold a prime, I think the hose connection at the pump needs a clip. Hooked up the water hose, no leaks
. Drained the fresh tank without any problems.
I ran an extension cord and plugged the trailer in. I checked the light
above the sink, that worked fine. Checked the 120v outlet, that was good. Read the owners manual for the fridge
and followed the instructions. No go, the fridge
won't run. I turned it off, then turned it to 12VDC, nothing. Turned it back off, then to 120v, still nothing. I had other things to do and figured I would come back to it tomorrow.
Before bed, I went out to button up the trailer. It was dark so I turned on one of the 12VDC lights
, nothing. So that is where I am today. I am thinking that the DC fuse might have blown and will check that. But not sure where to start with the fridge
. I think I will try plugging the fridge directly into the extension cord from the house. The previous owners said they used the fridge the last weekend, no idea what is going on, any suggestions
