  • @pthomas745 I think I resized it, hopefully that will be better
  • Update:  propane appears to be working to heat camper!  Will add this to my notes.   
  • OK @RollingBnB that is good information.  So I have the propane on now, that should help, right?  Thank you, I could not find that information in the manual.  
  • Still waiting until I can get some water in the camper to see if the adjustment on the valve did anything.  Today I towed it to my house to leave overnight with the heat on since we are supposed to get down to 28 overnight.   Plugged it in (with 30 …
  • @Verna so is this considered normal? I am new to campers so it seems strange to me that it is normal for a sink to just not drain without extra work being done to make it do so.
  • @Haloo, does water sit in yours for 10-15 minutes and not move?  
  • Thanks @RollingBnB the dealer had told me it was set on the hottest,  but I am wondering if they just thought simply turning it was the way to adjust it. I'll get the system turned on soon and see if it made a difference.  
  • Went and checked the 400 again today.  The voltmeter said 12.85 when the fridge wasn't running.   Was on about 12.56 when it was running.  Does that seem like it is holding a charge so far?  I have a copy of the chart from here for the battery but I…
  • @RollingBnB I tried to adjust the valve.  Where it said to move the knob out to the side I just pulled it towards me once the screw was loose?  Is that right? I turned it some and re tightened as it said.  
  • I just got a 400 and I'm towing it with a Honda Pilot equipped with 5k capacity.  The recommendation was to not go any lower.   So if you can get it equipped that way,  I would think it would work.  
  • @4ncar do you happen to know what that looked like?  I believe the camper had been winterized prior to the dealer taking delivery,  and I just had them flush all the stuff out because we're in Florida.  Perhaps there is something else that needs to …
  • @RollingBnB thank you for that. I looked at that and just assumed it was something to just turn.  I didn't loosen anything.  Not sure I follow exactly what to do by reading that, but I'll take a screwdriver out there tomorrow and play with it.   The…
  • @Ratkity @ericnliz thank you.  It is an agm battery   I will try to check it a couple times per week.  It is stored on property near my house,  no electric out there.  We are planning on a 1 night camping trip in 2.5 weeks. 
  • Thanks @ericnliz the thing they showed me at the dealer was just a knob, looked like it was turned all the way towards a plus sign if I remember correctly.   I will go out and double check it tomorrow.
  • Update on battery.  The voltmeter I purchased is plugged in.  It is staying around 12.61 to 12.68.  The battery button when pushed says full.   The lights work.  The fridge runs and the fans work.  I was plugged into 30 amp over the weekend.  So I'm…
  • @SAM, @dsfdogs just got off phone with Marvin, thinks bad cell in battery,  Harris battery will replace, have to work with them directly.  Also did say safe to drive,  breakaway brake power should cone from my tv. 
  • @SAM they said I did have some charge before I left.   I also just got the little plug in voltmeter and I will check on that as well before I go.  
  • More drama...went to pick up camper.  New thicker wire and 40 amp circuit breaker installed.  Still no charged battery.  They said it was at 11%.  It apparently at some point had tripped the circuit breaker and nobody noticed until I got there.  So …
  • @ericnliz they didn't have thr 8 g wire there.   By the time we figured all this out and were waiting for approval for the labor hours it was not able to be finished that day.   I think the wire oversight was an honest mistake,  she said it was her …
  • @ScottG, I spoke with Elsie,  she said she didn't realize she was supposed to send both, so that was a simple mistake.   I am hoping to hear from them this morning and really hoping they won't give me any trouble about fixing it.   I am planning on …
  • Thank you @Michigan_Mike I'm not sure where the heat runs are in the trailer, but hopefully everything will be ok tonight and I will get it back tomorrow and inspect it a little more closely.  Temps where it is located are predicted down to 30 for a…
  • The saga continues...I towed the 400 to the Camping World this morning.  Discovered NuCamp was supposed to send white wire along with the red and the fuse/circuit breaker thingie.  Drove another 50 minute round trip to go to Home Depot to buy the wh…
  • @SAM, thanks I sent them a message.  That one says is charges as well as a 3 amp charger and it is approved for the AGM batteries.  I will look up more information, hope they answer back and if not give it a try.  I am not really looking to buy anyt…
  • Is anyone using the BAL leveler with the Tab 400?
  • @SAM, I think I understand, thank you.  So the battery tender plus that I linked to you said was on the right track but I may want more powerful.  Would I need to look for something with more amps, then?  The 12V is the type of power, correct?  Perh…
  • @SAM yes it is the green wire one there that you see.  That is what they said was to be replaced with the parts that they sent me I think.  I'm thinking once I get that fixed, everything should be ok?  Once that is fixed with the 40 A, hopefully I s…
  • @SAM I will be towing it Wednesday morning (about 20 miles).  Do you think the two days of charging was not enough to fix it?  Would you suggest I bring it back to my house (it currently sits about a mile away on property we own) and plug it back in…
  • I am terribly sorry for this giant picture.  I cannot figure out how to delete it to resize somehow.  Note:  Not a problem, I handled this one for you.  Mike
  • @SAM, I did happen to take a picture at the walkthrough!  They told me counterclockwise was off and that I should leave that off when I wasn't using the trailer and it would prevent from draining the battery.  I will look into the monitor and read m…
