2006 Itasca Sunrise 35D

I am having a problem with the plug ins at the front of the motorhome when I am plugged into shore power. They run the TV, VCR and computer. These plugins periodically power out for appoximately 5 seconds, then come back on again. They also will run off an inverter when not using shore power and seem to be ok then.
Help with this problem would be appreciated.

Most newer Motorhomes have an ignition loockout that turns off the tv power when the key is turned on. Could be something with this circuit. Sorr but I don't know where this relay is located. Winnie online wiring diagrame may help you some. Good luck

Welcome to the forum

I think Wizard has the right idea - you need to download your wiring diagrams (you should keep them available in and case) and see what might be causing the problem. Maybe your transfer switch or something in the inverter switching is causing a momentary loss of power in your outlets.

Give Winnebago a call Monday and run the problem by them as well.

Have you tried tightening the screews in the main electric panel. Maybe you have a loose connetion.

If it is a loose connection, it could also be in the receptacle itself.

Make sure the power is OFF before pulling receptacles to check the connections. Use a tester first to verify they are dead.

We have a 2005 Itasca 35U, built in 2004. Here's my take for our MH, as delivered: There is a built-in 300 amp inverter running 24/7 off the 12 volt house batteries/converter system, even when the engine is running. This system provides 120v power for the satellite receiver, TV's and the entertainment system relating to TV. It's my opinion that this system is entirely separate and independent of the MH's regular 120v wiring system and appliances...

First, you can turn your 300w inverter on or off.

When 120v is available the inverter will auto switch the outlets to outside 120v power. When 120v is not available, and the inverter is switched on, the inverter will automatically switch to 12v to 120v operation.

The outlets that are inverter powered can be powered by inverter 120v or shore/gen 120v and that is automatically switched my the inverter.

I doubt the inverter is 300Amps. More likely 300Watts. Enough for a TV and Sat receiver.
