Utility Switch???
Got my 850 last year, without instructions.  Haven't camped yet as there were repairs to do, and I had to wait for guys to come and do them.  Does anyone know what this on/off switch is for?  Hot water tank or what?

Don't know for sure.  But would guess that it might be for the fan to circulate air into the basement?
Can you hear a fan noise?
I traded in the problematic 2014 Lance for an 1150 Arctic Fox - wish EC made the 1150.
The rig looks similar to this - nothing exceeds factory weight limits.

I will check that out.  I have no idea.  Thanks for the input!  Smile Smile
Sorry - missed this as I haven't checked the forum in a bit. Yes, it is to turn on a small fan inside the cabinet under the sink to push air back to the water pipes and tanks in cold weather. Just crack the door a bit and hit the fan if camping in freezing (or potentially freezing) temperatures.

And I do have a manual. I can PDF it and upload it, but won't be home for a few more weeks.
NM- double post and wouldn't delete!
2004-05 EC Manual and a couple of other docs attached including official specs.

Sorry about the kinda crappy pics in the pdf, but they're all readable.

Thanks so much.  I do hear a fan noise, but wasn't sure what it was for.  I only camp April to October and only when it is warm enough here in BC, so would I need to use it???

I will download those pdf's for sure.  Many thanks Smile
I only run it when it gets pretty cold...we were camped on VanIsle for a bit and it was down to around 4C, so ran it then off and on, but only because I was concerned about the wind, which was rather fierce for a few days. Didn't want the lines to freeze through wind chill. (No idea what to do about that while driving, either! But I guess running heat inside, and that fan would thaw any small frozen bits....)

I think the newer models, though manufactured by a different company, are a bit better insulated. I also have an Arctic Fox trailer which is definitely better insulated for cold weather camping.
Wow - just returned here to look something up. AMAZED at the number of downloads of the manual etc!!
