Big problem right now is we can not lower the camper. I'm going to have to call in a mobile repair man if we can not help the camp ground owner get it down.
UNFORTUNATELY this poster has 2 threads about the same issue, I will post pertinant info for this post here, but there is more on other post...
If your kids are able, should hook up jumper-Cables to charge battery for 20 minutes with the TOW VEHICLE ENGINE RUNNING, then they'll have enough juice to raise and lower top a few times.
As you know, to let the roof down, you usually have to lift it up roof slightly off the safety ya know, then let it down.
SO, if they are ready to just get home, have them MAKE SURE TO shut EVERYTHING OFF, hook tow vehicle with jumpercables to camper battery and charge it for a little while. It could be bad battery, or could be your inverter has something wrong & not charging battery.
I posted more in your other question thread.
