Customer Question
Lights run on battery...

Lights run on battery only even when plugged directly into electric. Fuses are all good. Eventually battery runs down. All outlets and refrigerator works

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

My apologies. Internal lights

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

2003 Wildnerness

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

Nothing except look at fuses and changed fuse by battery terminal (round 30 amp I believe)

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

PD50B3Q3GN is the model on my controller if that is the issue...

RV Mechanic: Wayne, RV Mechanic replied 8 months ago
