Customer Question
There's no power even...

There's no power even with electrical plug in from the house.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Completely dead. Bought a new battery yesterday. It's a Rockwood Signature ultralite

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

It's a Rockwood Signature Ultralite model 8314SS 2008

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

Trying to. Bought new battery. Checked fuse box. Not even getting 110 from our house.

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

Hooked batteries up opposite a week ago but changed them around and seemed fine. Worked for a week.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 months ago

SO when you are plugged into power do you have the AC power? The AC power will be the outlets, microwave, TV are they working at all?

What power source are you plugged into? Are you using any adapters or extension cords on the main cord OR are you plugged in direct, not cords or adapters?

This may take some going back and forth....

Thanks, Robert
