Tv : microwaveCeiling fan light flickers as fridge tries to go to a/c from lp
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

Check all of your breakers by turning them all the way to off and then all the way back on.

After that check the GFI outlets

When I use remote to turn on tv the red light is on but it won't come on and the ceiling fan and light will flicker down then back on when I let up on remoteNopeSome lights working when I turn on switch at control panel : but no microwave : tv : or fridge on a/c works on lp
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

Check other things in the house, check every outlet and both acs. I am thinking that you are only getting power on one of the shoreline wires.

That's my thought toOutlets work by plugging in phone to charge : all light switches turn on an off lights: started a/c and it kicked off the ceiling fan an light: turned off a/c and it came back on.No microwave: tv or fridge on a/c . Could I have a bad shore cord
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

Do you have a volt meter?

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I think in truck
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

I would start at the very beginning. Unplug the RV and check the parks outlet.

If your cord comes loose from the rv side, take that off and check it second.

3rd - if it has a generator or is even wired for one then there will be a transfer switch so it can go from shore power to generator without you having to switch it manually

What voltage should I get at the pole
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

You should get 120 volts from 2 of the holes. 2 should be hot, then a common and a ground

Ok it's raining cats an dog s I'll go out in a minute and checkWhat voltage inside at pluginsI'm getting 142
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

That could be your problem. Thats well outside the acceptable range

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
These are inside plugins in kitchen bedrooms living roomWhat would that indicate
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

Your outlets should be between 110 and 130. Outside of that, I would get my RV off that system. Its not a physical danger but you could harm appliances.

Is there a reason some things working and others not
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

Some things are less sensitive. I wouldn't be surprised if you have lost your tv. I bet if you use your meter and check that outlet, it will be at 142 also

Keep an eye on your 12 volt system. Your converter is pretty sensitive. If your lights start to dim, you need a new converter.

It's a rear entertainment with fireplace built in there and I can't get to plugsBut when I turned on fireplace the ceiling fan light got brighter an when I hit the heat for the fireplace the tv red light went off . It's back on now an ceiling fan light back to normal after turning off fireplace
RV Mechanic: RandyL45, RV Technician replied 1 year ago

OK your TV does have the red light on, indicating that it is getting power at some level.

My official stance is that you got into to much power. You need to have a nearby professional take a good look at whats going on. I think you have some damaged appliances.
