Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a 2004 National Dolphin 5342. The TV's in front and bedroom are on a separate circuit evidently. I understand that they disconnect when the engine is started. But unfortunately, they aren't working now, no matter what. I just bought this and have only used it once. It worked fine then.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Absolutely. And I have it plugged into power now, tv's still off

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '04 RV?

National Dolphin 5342

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

Honestly, I'm not sure where to start. I don't have a problem taking it into a shop, but don't want to hassle with it if i can figure it out myself.

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

That should be it. Thanks.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 6 months ago

The 5 dollars is a deposit to talk to an RV expert. I would not be answering questions for 5 dollars. IF you do not want to continue let me know. I have been a RV tech for over 20 years and doing this site for over 8 years. You only select a STAR rating on the page when you are satisfied. You can go back and forth as much as you like as well with no time limit...
