DC with battery

My DC works when hooked up to 120 volts. My DC dosen't work when on battery. Does anyone have a wiring diagram? Its 16'  '94. It was a search to find the inverter.

DC with battery

If you are certain your battery is good, check your battery fuse.

Check Both ends of the Battery Cables

Also, I would check both ends of the Battery Cables for good connections/ no corrosion.

Inverter

What Make/Model Power Inverter do you currently have?  Wiring diagram for those we can find online once we have that info. In a 94 it may have been changed out or added a time or two.

I'll add this on until we get the make/model info.  They're are usually 2 side by side 30A fuses on the circuit board of the power inverter.  One is for the AC operation and one is for the DC operation. On my power inverter I've found if AC is not functioning or DC is not functioning in the trailer it is usually because the cooresponding 30A fuse is blown. If it is not the 30A fuse then once you have the circuit board wiring diagram take an ohm /power meter and check the DC inputs to make sure power is arriving from the battery to the inverter, if not, trace back from there.

Where are battery fuses located?

Hi - we just did our second trip in our new to us 2008 16 foot Scamp.  Have exact same problem with no DC operation, on AC everything works fine.  Prior owner replaced inverter before we purchased it.  Battery is good, terminals and wires are corrosion free.  Fuses on inverter looked fine.  I saw the 2 battery fuses on the wiring diagram, where are they located??    Easy to find or hidden somewhere?   Can you send photo?  There was a mass of wires with twist caps in the large front closet, all looked tight.  I think lights, water pumps, etc. did work on DC when we first purchased this a few months ago.  Thanks a lot for your help!!

Scamp Wiring Diagram

I found the link below with a Google Search.

Since Scamp designs are similar from year to year, this should give you a running start on trouble shooting your particular issue.

Good Luck !

Converter

I got the diagram, thanks. Is there an easier way to the converter, besides under the seat?

Power

I looked and found 2 fuses and they both are go. Now I am thinking a disconnect from front to converter.
