RV Electrical Systems Problem

by Don Russell

Question: What would make the electrical system shut down after running a few minutes and then come back on on its own. The 110 volt air conditioner, refrigerator, and lights will be working and then shut down and then a few minutes later come back on.



Robbie: I believe the trouble is a thermal breaker between the converter and 12V battery. Thermal breakers will trip and reset themselves. Try pulling one 12V fuse one at a time until the short stops tripping the breaker.

Good luck,
Robbie
