240 volt power shorting out
« on: December 07, 2018, 10:10:50 AM »
Anyone had issues with the 240v power shorting out and tripping the house fuses.
I have managed to access the mass of wires next to the battery and nothing is obvious.
Wondering if the water heater might be playing up.

Any one have a electrical wiring diagram?

2011 model Topaz

Start by unplugging all the “appliances” in the Topaz, battery charger etc etc etc so that you only have the Topaz plugged straight into 240v with nothing internally connected to a power point. Then plug in and turn on one appliance at a time. You will then find which one is causing the 240 volt to trip out. Once you find which circuit that is faulty make a call and get a 240v electrician in for further testing.

We had a problem like that, it was the circuit breaker. Old and worn out. Had it replaced, no problems now.

We've had our Topaz II Savannah for just under 4 years now and have never had the 240 V circuit breaker trip or the house circuit breaker trip, nor have I heard of any other Topaz having this problem and I keep in touch with about a dozen or so Topaz owners.

I do have Topaz wiring diagrams but I thought that they were on the forum anyway.  If you can't find them, let me know your email address and I'll email them to you.
