Well I owe you an enourmous thanks. I did as you mentioned and we successfully hit the road late last night (albeit a few hours behind schedule!). We just landed in NoCal and had a great drive. With one exception...

Apparently a rock from the road hit the moving panel of the drivers window and shattered it on contact. Scared the hell out of us, but we're fine. Will I be able to have any ordinary auto glass guy replace that or will it require ordering a special Airstream part? The handle flew out the window, so that's going to have to be replaced. But the glass appears to be standard autoglass, slightly curved in one axis and set into the felted slide channel.

Thoughts?

And again, thanks!

Dale

Dale, the window is special, as is the handle. If you can hold on until you get back, I think Inland has both the window and converter, you could get them both taken care of at that time.

Yes get a charge wizard,most any rv dealer will have one. I think you still have a bad fuse or loose conection.If your batteries are good you will have power without the charger.

Univolts have a reputation of cooking (boiling) b atteries when the coach is left plugged in for long periods. The "Intellipower 9100 with charge wizard" is a huge improvement. You can also install a simple switch in the 120vAC plug wire - mine is located in the reefer compartment for outside access. That way it is quick and simple to turn the noisy thing off when in storage mode. ALSO there is a solenoid-type relay on the back side of the battery tray (you have to get underneath to see it). It's normal function is to combine batteries for engine starting.

Thanks, guys. The problem was actually twofold: 1. My univolt failed. 2. My fuse block has a major short on the positive 50A lead. I'm about to do some major upgrades and am going to post a new thread on them right now. Yeah! Upgrades!
