Are you going to rewire it yourself? Or have the dealership do it?
Ok here is a final update on this thread.
No way am I having a dealer do anything I can do myself, particularly simple 12v wiring. I'm quicker, cheaper, and better than them. Period.+
1. Camera Prep.
This past weekend I removed the running light immediately above the camera. The running light has 2 wires - red and white. Red is hot, white is earth. I spliced into that wiring as there was plenty of slack to pull it out of the 'wall'. I pushed the two wires down to the camera hole (this was easy as it is only about 3 inches, and you can put your finger in the hole and pull out on the wall it is super thin and flexible). I then cut the stupid prep wires and just pushed them into the abyss of the wall. Spliced in the 2 running light wires and voila! Job done as it should have been done from the factory. Camera now only comes on when I turn on the running lights.
Time - 10 minutes.
Now this one I cannot tackle without a wiring diagram so it has to be done by the dealer.
This was like 'prove it is wrong'. Even with a letter from tech support Camping World were still fighting that that a 1200 watt inverter should be running an Air-conditioner, a microwave, and 3 GFI outlets. This is because "we heard that the air-conditioner is low wattage...". Please. I was not born yesterday.
Anyhow with my appointment I actually got a technician and he took one look at the setup (after turning on the air-conditioner running from the inverter) and said to the service 'expert'. "Do you see these little yellow sun labels on these 2 outlets?
Well this means that these outlets run from the solar panel - Sun. Solar. Get it? These are the only things that the inverter should be running. The inverter is wired wrong."
Justice! Camper booked in to be 'corrected'. Lord knows when I'll see it again.
The day after I took delivery of the trailer I took it back because the solar charger was displaying an error. The same technician who looked at the inverter problem looked at the solar charger problem. He pointed to a mess of cables on the A frame and asked the prep/delivery guy why the Solar was not hooked up. Pre/Delivery guy said "I thought that was for a generator". Tech looked at the sky and pointed to the sun and said "Yep. That one!"
Solar was promptly hooked up with much blushing.
So much for pre-delivery QC.
