Teton Owners Questiom

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone

I looked at my 12V panel and seen something interesting. Under #51 its listed as solar panel. It has the wire in the fuse block and fuse is in it. I have no solar panel on the roof.  This much i know. But for the Teton Owners where on the roof might that wire poke through. If the fuse is in it the wire has to be up there somewhere. Ive not seen anything so im wondering if indeed it is hiding somewhere.

Its possible there was a panel there, which means the wire could be in the wall near there. I found this on RV trader, maybe you could call the seller and ask.

I have the same fuse provision.  In the roof is a connector for the solar panel hookup.  Its about right above the 12V fuse panel

You may consider a MTTP solar charge controller.  With these, you can use the less expensive (in most cases) higher OCV panels....just be sure to isolate that line to the roof from the 12V system first.

The wire is typically under a plate - like that cutout and sealed area you show on your roof.

Totally off subject. The Teton surprised me on the scales. According to the scale weights the pin weight is a very heavy 5720. And the trailer axle weights are 16980.  Would have never guessed 5720 on the pin and i don't have much in it.  So the TSLB2H third airbag is now mandatory not optional.

Rear axle weight empty 5700

Most of these older Tetons were sold before super trucks. So they built a heavy pin in to make them tow sweet. And they do. They also knew they would not be towed by a LDT.

That sounds reasonable to me.  Pin weight is usually 20 - 25% of total, and 5720 is right at 25%.

Surprised me simply based on the advertised pin weight etc in the brochures.  Not that there ever accurate but in this case there way off.  Based on the brochure it said 4525 on the pin. Thus I figured with the few things in the lower storage etc I thought maybe 5000. Either way it is what it is!  Glad I have enough TV to handle the weight.
