Well I made a big mistake and I have to admit it. I wanted to have a 30 amp service installed to run the air conditioner when we are getting ready to head out or when we came home from a trip and my neighbor who installed our stabilizer jacks said that he could do it for me.
He installed another
electric box because our current box was maxed out and he ran the cable
out to a box near our motorhome.
Today was the day to flip the breaker and test everything. Unfortunately
things did not work out well. The breakers tripped in the motorhome
and smoke started to billow out of the electric box in the motorhome.
Below is a picture of the converter.
Below is a picture of what I think is a capacitor that exploded when the power was connected.
I posted this on rv.net for some input on what I need to do next. I feel stupid that I allowed my neighbor to use our motorhome as a testing device and I have learned a valuable, but hopefully not too expensive lesson.
I hope that your day has been better than mine and that your weekend is great!
I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.
