spartan 33' usable in the woods 40 years ago. I am mechanical. First of all i need a owners man. or reprint or a good copy or download. This one has rear bath,twin beds mid and front sofa with folding table on L. It is not too bad tho. I went over wiring, then hooked up battery, tried lights-ok, then plugged in 110 and flipped 2 cb's all 110 plugs work. questions= the front steps were down when bought but for moving i stowed, now they won't come out. What is procedure to get out= the knob seems frozen, but i also tried the day i put it up when i got home. at L. rear there is a clear jeweled eye near hose port. what is this for? No brighter with power on. on wall half up above kitchen sink there is a rocker light switch, what is it for? I plugged in fridge in behind the removeable panel outside and followed inst. inside fridge lower bottom panel to power up nothing. is elect power 110 or 12 volt
? dometic cc gg model says 110 made in sweden. there is a vent fan in the top vent abeam sink (doesn't work) is this original? 12 or 110? stove vent going outside has vent flapper control, flapper works, but not fan,
Try using some oil on the mechanism for the steps, pressing down on the lever, the steps should drop down on their own.
The little jewel lens on the outside is thewarning lamp for an improperly wired outlet. If it's off, the AC power you're connect to is OK. If it's on, unplug REAL fast so you don't hurt the trailer power converter and battery.
The switch by the sink is for the water pump. Not needed if your hooked to city water, but necessary for using the fresh water holding tank.
The fridge takes a long time to get cold, especially on 110 power. Mine works much better on LP gas.
Mine doesn't have that vent on the roof because it was retro fitted with an AC unit.
Take the filter off the range hood and use a volt meter to check if power is going to the fan, should be 12 volts. It may be a dirty switch.
I've only had mine for a week, so I'm sure someone else will chime in...
