Your Excella sounds identical to mine, except that I don't have any solar equipment. Glad that the solar stuff appears to be OK. Photos of the interior here: View From the Sofa to the Rear - Photo Gallery
One of the best purchases I made was a Service Manua
l from the factory store website. They don't have them for 1983, but they do have them for both 1982 and 1984. I got the 1984 because my brother has a 1984 Excella, but I really doubt that there is much difference.
My converter is under the front window beneath the sofa between the batteries. See photos at http://www.airforums.com/forums/f449...0-a-57567.html
. You will also notice that the 12v
fuse panel is just above the converter.
The outlet that it plugs into is on the same circuit as the bedroom, bathroom, and outside outlet and is on a ground fault breaker. It is the only outlet on that end of the trailer on the GFCI breaker, and that may be a little counter intuitive. After making sure that you have power to the outlet, then check whether there any fuses in the converter that are bad. If it's original it should look like the one in first photo in the replacement thread.
If it is the original Univolt, there are many reason to update, some of which I mentioned in my replacement thread. There are also many threads on the topic. I usually use the Google Search option under the Search drop-down.
Do you have a multimeter? You don't need an expensive one, a good basic one like this Craftsman
available at Sears or Kmart would serve you very well and is (just) under $20. It would be a lot of help.
Sorry about your problems. I will keep watching your progress and will try to help if I can.
