Customer Question
We have a winnebag.....currently...

We have a winnebag.....currently connected to 240volt mains electricity. All direct power sockets are working...we have power to electrical appliances. However our lighting system runs from batteries. The electricity has been connected continually for 4 days. But the lights are blinking on and off every 60-80 seconds.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

Sorry my name is*****: What is the model of your '60 RV?

Winnebago

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

Checked terminals on batteries. Made sure all battery operated fittings have been turned off all day

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

We did have an electrician check the power source (240 volt input) checked and the circuit breaker was replacved last week
