Anyone know what the symbols one and two from the right are?
Could 2 from the right be external step?
It could be but the van dosnt have one.
could second from right be short circuit protetction? Or something to do with crossing the streams in ghostbusters?
Maybe it is a standard fuse box fitted even if no step there.
But then again it could be something else:Confused:
The one 2nd from right, is supposed to be two probes and a spark (flash). It is the fuse connected directly to the service battery (engine batt) for powering boilers/heaters/cookers/fridge gas ignitors etc. Basically anything that needs to remain powerd up when Liesure battery is disconnected or low on charge.
The one that looks like steps, is for steps. The rest are self explanatory I think/hope.
Hope this helps,
P.S one on far right is for fridge 12volts.
Ignition for same?
It is up to the convertor which way he wires up the Fridge/Freezer. Some are connected to the service battery for the ignition, but mine for example uses thr liesure battery. The main 12 volts supply for Fridge or Freezer comes from the fuse marked * and would not be used for the ignition circuit.
Usually Brambles, the fridge/freezer is wired via a relay and only works on 12 v when the engine is running.
Maybe R Vs are different
Not many RV's use 12volt for the F/F apart from controlling it. Usually they run on LPG or Mains.
What about when you are driving, do they not run on12 or 24 volt then?
:Cool: NOPE. Although our Mini RV does (Dethleffs).
I have got one of these newish super dooper full size ff that selects the most efficient power sourse at any given time.
Or that is what the book says!:Rofl1:
:Cool: My Newmar (RV) MAY soon be running on 12 volt power driving a 110 volt Inverter and re-charged by Solar power. :Wink:
Getting a bit complecated now!
Do the elec appliances in :Confused:RVs run on 110v
They run on LPG or Mains (110v in MOST cases)
So by that I think that you mean that the ff runs on lpg while the veh is running.
Is that safe?:Confused:
:Laughing: That is THE question that has only 2 answers. Some say YES. Some say NO. I do and have always done. :Wink:
I get your drift!
Just like running the gas heater, some say you can some say not.
Maybe a special flu that will not give a back draft
Our F/F (Reefer in US terms) has never gone out when travelling. Only when it has run out of gas.
