Recently bought a 15M/30F Amp Adapter, and today plugged my Scamp
16 (2011) into a normal house socket (used for the washing machine) using the adapter. For 5-7 minutes all the 120 stuff I turned on in the trailer worked fine (A/C, fridge
, florescent light). The clock on the microwave
turned on by itself.
Shortly thereafter (5-7 minutes) all the 120 stuff turned off. The 12v lights
and fantastic fan still came on fine.
Not knowing how/where to track down the problem, I unplugged the trailer from the socket with adapter, pulled out adapter, and plugged the washing machine back in and tried to run it. No dice. Socket "dead."
I went over to the the circuit breaker box in the garage to see if I could tell anything, but I don't really know what to look for. However, taped inside the door was this info my dad must have written down years ago
blue (button switches): 15 amp
1 Living room, front porch, family bath
2 Kitchen wall sockets
3 Master bedroom, small bedroom
4 Washer ***
... etc. all the way to 10
Green: 30 amp
1 Dryer ***
2 ...nothing there
I guess the washing machine socket was not a good one to use ???? Do I need to call an electrician to repair the washing machine socket???
I then pulled the dryer out to see its plug and socket. The socket was quite large, like on the adapter 15M/30F. BUT, no way to plug the trailer into that socket because while the size matches up with my trailer cord (no adapter needed), the plug prongs are different. The ground plug is cylinder shape on the trailer with other 2 prongs rectangular, whereas the dryer plug has three L-shaped prongs.
I'm totally lost. Can somebody lend a hand on all this?
