Exclamation 12V Partial power - '76 Argosy 28

Hey Airstreamers! I need some help, I'm totally stumped.

I have partial 12V power. The front interior lights work, but the water pump does not (fuse is good). None of the other 12V items rearward are working. I've tested all fuses front & rear, Have good 12V power from the battery, new univolt. I even continuity tested the fuse holders, all seems to be well there.

Everything was working fine, then BAM! nothing. I'm on shore power, but I disconnected to test. The stereo works, but it's wired direct to the battery. I've got a solar unit, and it's showing the battery is at 13.4V.

It's gotta be some in-line fuse, or fusible link, or something somewhere?

HELP!!!


Thanks very much,

Allie

Check your grounds. You may very well have one or more loose or corroded.

Update - got the bath & two of three overhead lights working, but now the middle of the trailer is dark. Corrosion on the fuseblock - but arent the three overhead lights on the same circuit?

okay - solved

Call of the Geek Squad - fixed. Intermittent faulty (not blown) fuse. Found it after I replaced all fuses - guess that needed to be done anyway...
