Welcome to the site.

About the factory camper conversions within your Van, RV.net, the class B sub forum, would be a good place to ask.

http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/listings/forum/21

Unfortunately a lot of members over there will basically say:

'just throw money at it'

But there are a few members with older class B's who will be able to help you.

Not to be rude, but the first thing you should learn how to use is punctuation. It is VERY difficult to parse through a post that is nothing but a run-on sentence without even capitalization. We want to help you, but you can help us help you by using as close to correct punctuation and spelling as possible.

Pictures are a must. What company did the conversion? What brand appliances are installed?

You might try getting new house batteries before anything unless you already know that yours is good.

I can tell you how my camper van works - it may not apply to yours since mine is a Starcraft converted Ford.

None of my 110 volt outlets work unless I am plugged in. All of my 12 volt outlets work all the time (given that I have a new and fully charged house battery)

As for the stove, furnace, plumbing ect. I am still working on figuring those out myself. I agree with whomever above suggested the RV forums - SOME of those folks are extremely knowledgeable.

There is also:
http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/index.php
http://www.cheaprvlivingforum.com/
http://www.irv2.com/forums/

Al of those have been extremely helpful to me. The class B forum has a ton of manuals available - you might be able to find one for your rig.

Welcome to the forums!
