Does anyone know what the 20-amp circuit breaker labeled 'Lower End' is for? (Cougar 325SRX)

Thanks,

Talking to myself I guess... :D

Curiosity got to me so I traced it out, the 'Lower End' breaker controls the utility AC outlet on the rear of the breaker panel unit, which in turn powers the DC converter (and nothing else so far as I have been able to determine.) So the 'Lower End' breaker essentially powers the converter and provides a way to turn it off if you wish. Why it is marked as it is I don't know.

Don't feel bad about talking to yourself ---- it's the answering you should be worried about! Keystone isn't known for its labelling expertise. Owners often find things incorrectly labelled or not labelled at all. We are hoping that someday, they will get it right. In the meantime, we all scratch our heads and wonder.

I heard you talking to yourself but didn't want to interrupt until you answered yourself. I'm glad you traced it out because I had no clue. Mine is labeled "CONV-REC" which I assumed was converter receptacle and made sense.
Now I'm worried .... What was your labeler doing to my trailer while my labeler was labeling. Happy Camping, Hank

Howdy All;

My take is "Shop Slang", The converter is the "Lower" section of the unit so
the Amish kid with the 7th grade education labeled it as such. They hier A LOT of Amish to work there. Most likely to accept minimum wage...

At least on mine he was busy labeling my panel and not doing something else.

This wasn't hand-written BTW, it is on a pre-printed label that also contains all the other breaker descriptions. I'm thinking that maybe on some units Keystone has a separate circuit for the basement area and I maybe got the wrong label installed? Or maybe they mean the 'lower end' of the voltage range (12 volts.) ;)
