I have a Wanderer glide lite and I'm trying to renovate. I am wondering where the battery is located? I ordered a new converter and I want to get a new battery too.

Should be on the trailer tongue, right behind the propane tanks.
Two cables should come out of the trailer body to connect to them, and even though the standard converters are not great, I would replace the battery/ies first, it may work fine once batteries are connected.

Sorry did not notice the fifth wheel, I never saw one of those that was a 5er. One of the forward compartments should have the cables for the battery connections. If not, then go to the converter and locate the battery connections and trace from there.

5th wheel or TT. If you post in the right section you are much more likely to get pertinent information.

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and just bought my first new to me travel trailer. It is a 2000 ThorCalifornia Wanderer Glide Lite 230FB. I just took it out for the first trial run and am getting the feel for how everything does, does not work or the fact that I have no clue on how some of it works at all.

I figured out with some help about the propane detector needing to be on in order for the stove to light, so got that part nailed down (The previous owner removed the fuse from the sensor for some reason referring to this page but it seems to work correctly when the fuse is back in place).

On to my questions:

1. Is there something special about getting the furnace to light/run? I know I have flow from the propane tanks at least to the refrigerator and the stove as the fridge was nice and cold and I could light the stove. I tried adjusting the temperature on the thermostat up to a high level, but never felt any heat or any sound of the furnace lighting or running at all.

2. Is there something to check if the water heater will not warm water on just propane/12V? I am about 90% sure that the hot water is working on shore power, but it just made kind of a buzzing sound when we were on 12V/Propane. I was kind of thinking that the propane lines might have been clogged near the water heater, but wasn't sure how to go about purging the lines or if there is a way to blow out all of the propane lines at once with compressed air?

3. If there is a way to clear the propane lines all at once, do I need to be careful about how high of pressure and where would I force the air into the system? Do I just unscrew the lines to the propane tanks and force in air from there?

Thanks for the help on this, I've been doing a bunch of reading on here over the last few weeks and got a lot of good information!
