I've had my 1978 Argosy 28 Foot - Rear Bath/Twins for about 2 weeks now, and I'm still working out some of the kinks. Some are simply user ignorance, while others appear to be mechanical/electrical.
My current electrical troubles....
Whether I'm running off the generator -OR- plugged into a 120 Volt Electrical Supply, there are times when the power appears to "switch" from the generator/city power to the motorhome batteries. This condition is rather obvious in that my interior lights, fans and the entertainment center all start dim and die over time. Curiously, the 120 Volt Convenience outlets work fine, as does the Refrigerator (when set on electric).
The fuses mostly
look good in the Univolt 12 Volt
Distribution panel. The AGU 50-Amp appears to be slightly "bubbled" but not broken. No breakers are thrown in the panel located in the read bathroom closet.
I have 1 starting battery and 2 auxiliary batteries.
Also, I'm not sure if this could be related, but I have been having trouble starting the motorhome. I just replaced the starter and she fired up with no problems. Then I went out for the weekend and stopped about 30 minutes into my drive and she refused to start. I crawled under and tapped on the starter with a hammer....and eventually was able to start it up again. Not sure if it was just dumb luck or if I actually did something. Just when I thought this was a heat related issue (the 454 runs VERY hot), she wouldn't start after sitting cold for 2 days at the RV park. I tried the hammer technique again with no luck. I finally got a jump start from my neighbors SUV and that did the trick.
Do I have Univolt issue? Battery? Fuses?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
