- I just brought my '07 Cruiser 27RL home from its winter hideaway to get it ready for her first trip of the 2011 season.

- It started with what I chalked up to be a dead battery at the storage lot and when I got it home, everything seemed fine after I plugged it in to the house power.



- I left it for a couple of hours to do some other things around the house, and then decided to go out and open the slide, open some windows, and air her out a bit.



- This is where the trouble started...the slide wouldn't go out, there was no power?!?!

- There was no power on the "Control Panel" either?!!?

- I couldn't even show power on my Hot Water switch!?!?

- Even my leveller's worked?!?!



- Yet, when I flipped any of the light switches, they all came one?!?!?



- I checked the fuse panel, and everything was fine.



- What am I missing here folks??

- All help and input is appreciated!Edited by: MONTE1214

- I wondered about that. but wouldn't the house power take over once it's plugged in?

I would start with checking the fuses on the power converter.

- All those fuses are ok.

- There's about six 15a and a couple of 40a.

- I just checked the battery too, and it's showing 13.65v.



- Like I said...the leveller's work, the lights are working, but the control panel is not lighting, the water heater lightis not lighting and of course, the slider don't work?



- A true electrical gremlin here.

The 13.65 volts on the battery is from the converter charge. Disconnect shore power and turn on several lights and see if the battery holds around 12.6 volts. Thats where a good battery should be if fully charged and it shouldn't drop to much as you increase the load for a while.

- All the lights on, it was at 12.4v.

- I even turned on the landing gear, and it only went down to 12.2v.



- If it was "just" my slide, I'd be suspicious of the motor being burntout, but because it's the slide AND the control panel AND the water heater switch, I'm thinking there must be a fuse hidden somehwhere??

Could be a mouse damage. They love crewing on wires.

- Would that not short out wires and pop a fuse?

- I guess I'll have to pull my cabinet apart where the control panel is.



- Just hoping it's something else, that someone on here will pick up on.Edited by: MONTE1214
