Shore Power Problems...

Howdy,

I noticed 2 weeks ago when I plugged in just a second or two after entering the AS the power came on. I thought a lag was weird but figured another weird thing with trailers.

Today at a new spot same thing BUT power never came on. Gave the panel a gentle kick at the converter and it came on.

I figure loose connection so pull it apart and tighten every thing I can see and look for obvious weirdness. Nothing....

Last time I did it I noticed the red light was not on at the power inlet outside... I guess because no current but would power cord have anything to do with it?

Using a high quality Progressive surge protector and it reads normal.

Have a service appt next Tuesday but wold like to resolve faster if a "homeowner fix".

Any thing I'm missing? Fuses all good and seated well....

Thanks,

Rounder44

Is this the Progressive chart you used to determine “normal”?

Hmm...

Well I broke out the Progressive PT30X manual and it states there is a 136 second delay when powering up.

I'm confident it was powering up instantly or close to previously as I'd jump in the AS right away to make sure the fridge had shifted from propane to shore power...

Maybe that's all it is?

I had upgraded to the Wildkat converter when I first bought the AS back in October and installed myself. ALL connections are absolutely secure and tight.

Any other clues or advice welcome!

Thanks,

R44
