Whoops didn't no that

Post by rich g on Mon Apr 03, 2017 3:32 pm

I have just read that my EC155 Power Control should be turned off before i connect the electric hook up.
Then when you have connected to the EH turn the power control on.
I have never turned the Power Control off.
Does everyone leave it as i do? and what harm if any will it do.

I asked the same for my EC325 some time ago. http://www.autosleeper-ownersforum.com/t12785-ec325-with-ehu
Consensus seemed to be don't bother. MInd I have had to change the EC325 to a EC328 since due to a internal sensor fault, which may or not be related?

News to me. I've never switched ours off in four vans.

Have to admit, I plug in at the van first ,then plug into the EHU tower, surprising how many do it the other way around .

That's the correct way, and what I do. I have seen in marinas people pop out for a quick sail, leaving their coiled shore power lead on the pontoon still connected to the electric post. No accounting for stupidity.

I supposed if the PSU is not off but say water heater or other heavy current appliance is on, arcing is possible when the plug is put into the site post.
