Electrical Help

Hi all!

I have a 2010 Scamp and initially thought we had a dead battery. Bought a new battery and still no power. But power works when plugged into our home. Where should I start first?

Thanks for the help

Using a test light or meter check the voltage at the battery and work your way to the fuse panel. The fuse or its holder in the battery box is a common failure point. Your book may have a wiring diagram in the back. Some years had a fuse under the bunks just inside the front also.

and after you've discovered you hooked up the battery wrong, check the 30 amp fuse in the converter.

I missed the part where they said they hooked up the battery wrong.

It is easy to make that mistake, because main battery connections are generally RED (+), BLACK (-), unlike most everything else you'll encounter.
Re-check the Main Battery connections . then look for a blown Main Fuse in the stated locations.
