Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.
You cleaned the battery terminals and now you don't have any 12 VDC power? Not sure what you broke there. Maybe attach a photo of that so I can see what you are talking about. Use the paperclip icon for that. All follow ups are included in our fee.
I can give you a call as soon as Customer Service clears your payment with the card company. Maybe just a Fraud Alert.
I am in California.
Yes. I see what you mean on the cord.
Do you have a small digital multimeter for some testing?
About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. What did you actually break in that 120 VAC inlet at the cord?
O.K. Plug in the coach and take a DC volts reading at the battery(s). You should have about 13.7 VDC.
So it isn't charging or it isn't reaching the battery. Try it again at the load center. Take the cover off and check the power there.
What is the make and model of your load center?
Take the cover off and take a reading between the heavy red and heavy white leads on the fuse block. They should be marked as battery leads.
No word on the phone chat yet........
What kind of DC volts reading did you get at the load center? Were the reverse polarity fuses o.k.?
So the problem is probably at the shortstop breaker. See the attached link to see what you are looking for. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=shortstop+breaker+photo&id=8D4939A7F0965679E3E29C89B963B0D9C24CDC15&FORM=IQFRBA
Most have a small black button on the end with the copper post that you have to push in so it will reset. Low voltage trips them.
By code they have to be within 18" of the battery. Follow the red lead right to it or them as sometimes there is more than one.
No problem...........I took a dinner break. I think when you find that you will have the solution.
Just checking back in to see if you were able to track down the shortstop breaker? Never did get any notice on the phone chat payment.
