1989 Cobra Newport 27' Class A: using as a trailer. No

Customer Question
1989 Cobra Newport 27'...

1989 Cobra Newport 27' Class A: using as a trailer. No engine. No battery. Overhead DC lights have been removed. Cannot get voltage to light heater or water heater. 27 VAC at breakers. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

I have AC lights. That is not the problem. Cannot light propane heater or propane water heater.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Newport yourself? What have you tried so far?

A house electrician cannot locate the problem. He is not familiar with RV circuits. Can you send wiring diagrams?

A​re you using any kind of adapter on the shore cord? Does it have the OEM transfer switch still installed? That is the usual area where a problem like this exists. With your meter we can test that and track this down.
