Sounds like you addressed the issue - a poor connection. Saved yourself a trip to the dealer to boot. You're now officially knighted to address each and every problem that arises! Good luck with your new trailer.

Lol and thanks.

As a retired engineer, unresolved gremlins in the electrical system are a bit worrisome. My wife said "Great! It's fixed." She's going to fix me an adult beverage later; so all will be well.

What they didn't tell you when shopping for a trailer is that you need to become an auto mechanic, electrician, plumber, carpenter, audio/tv specialist, IT manager, and AC/heating specialist. Fortunately, I leave the chef responsibilities to my wife.

Ok, so on arrival yesterday here in Las Cruces, problem recurred. I connected 50A service, all was well, had 13.7V on the readout in USE position. Turned to STORE, got 9.3V. Back to USE, had 12.5V, and the I/C fan started.

Hm.

Opened up the inverter/converter cover, turned off breaker #1, and again, snugged down all 8 DC buss lugs, rather more enthusiastically this time.

After this, I switched on the I/C, and the fan did not restart. In USE position, I got 13.7V. Then, in STORE, I got 13.7V. Yippee!

It has been in STORE the last 24 hours, and I've still got 13.7V, and NO FAN.

Current best guess is I10 West from Fort Stockton to Las Cruces (parts of that road were pretty rough) shook one of the connections again.

Anyway, things are running well.

You may have fixed the problem if it was a loose lug. Low voltage systems need snug connections or you're likely to have a voltage drop. Keep an eye on it.
