Electrical Issues Help Please!
We have had our Sportsmobile for a year, lots of fun! However, the previous owner had removed the thermostat from the inside electrical heater under the seat, and it runs continuously unless I unhook my accessory battery. This seemed to be fine until both my batteries drained on a trip. We ended up camping in the parking lot of an auto parts store. They tested my alternator while it was in the van and it failed. I removed the alternator and took it to be tested alone, and it passed. I replaced the connector to the alternator as it looked to be frayed. Just put the alternator back in and she fired right up, but am afraid to drive any distance as she left me stranded previously. Could that fan be draining my system? If so, is there an easy way to disable it? Any ideas? Should I put another thermostat in? Where to connect it? Thanks!
