I have searched through the forums here...can't find answer....
Water pump switch turned on the pump before my trip this weekend. I was hooked up to electric. Unhooked from electric, it still did not work. ??
Battery is good, new. Lights work on battery alone. Everything else works on electric.
appreciate your help
Diane

Check for blown fuse at fuse panel and look for disconnected wires at pump and switch.

I don't have a Casita, so I don't know if this applies or not...

In my Fiber Stream, the Converter/Charger/110 volt Circuit Breakers/12 volt Fuse Panel is all in one unit.
There are 4 each of the 12 volt DC fuses.
  1. Lights for Bathroom & Kitchen
  2. Lights for Dinette/Bed area
  3. Water Pump
  4. "Furnace" Blower Motor

There are 2 each of the 110 Circuit Breakers
  1. Refrigerator & Microwave
  2. Everything else

My guess is a bad fuse for your water pump, or a bad pump.

Checked all 4 fuses. They are good.
The water pump was pumping before I left on this trip. Have not gone under the seat yet to check the pump. No access from outside. Will do that next, but not tonight.

If you find the switch open after a long store just removing it and reinstalling it will do the trick for another season in many cases.

sorry for this late reply.....found the problem. The wires had come loose from the
back of the switch (behind the wall of kitchen).
easy fix!

Volt meters or at least test lamps are a Godsend. I carry a cheap 'Harbor Freight Tools' digital meter as part of my trailer kit. It's the only easy, non-messy way to check your battery state of charge.
The only thing you have to watch for is that a low meter battery will cause low test readings.

OK, proceed, lots of old posts could use a follow up.
