Customer Question

I have a 2011 Work and Play. Arrived at my destination to hear my smoke alarm going off. I turned off my propane and switched my fridge to AUTO, aired out the trailer. The alarm stopped, but I lost all power. Running lights were not working. Breakers were fine, but the two MAIN 30 amp fuses were no good. Replaced them and my running lights are working again, but nothing else. No lights, no monitor, and the electric jack isn't working.

Did you just hook up the battery(s) before you left? It sounds like you have the polarity wrong OR the converter just shorted out. One or the other here would seem to be the problem based on what you told me. OR another place is shorted out and caused you to lose power and the short was setting off the alarm. Get back to me with some more information and we can sort this out.
