I have a new to me 2006 Scamp
16'. The day I bought it, the previous owner had the battery
tested and it was shot, so I bought a new one (about a month ago).
I have been doing some maintenance on it for the past few weeks, using the fan on and off while on battery
Recently I plugged into shore power to use a floor fan in the trailer, and shortly after that I noticed that the battery
functions (e.g. lights
, fan) no longer work. It would appear that the battery had never been charging, and I'd slowly drained it all the way over the past few weeks.
I replaced and then tested all the fuses (4 20a fuses - two on the American converter, one at the battery, and one in the closet) and they were all good. I then disconnected the battery, and the overhead light
(not battery powered) works just fine, but the battery lights
still don't work.
I purchased a clamp multimeter and have used that to test the fuses but that is about the extent of my multimeter chops.
Can anyone suggest next steps for testing? I've read several discussions that the American converter didn't last very long, is there a set of steps I can take to confirm if that is working or not?
Thanks in advance.
