    PD4135 Converter- Do I need a battery?

    I’m installing a new pd4135 converter in my Laredo. Hadn’t thought of this until now but do I need to install a battery? This camper has never had one and I don’t see the need to otherwise add one. Will it hurt the converter to just wire nut the battery wire? Thank you.

    Roof vent addition

    Our Laredo (same as Taos except layout) didn’t have one either but did have a hole for a wood burning stove. I bought a maxxair fan and laid out the template nice and square and cut it out. I would just suggest finding a convenient spot where it won’t interfere when folded up.

    Need help: Adding a Maxxfan

    Hello all. I’m adding a Maxxfan to my 1996 Laredo. It currently has no roof vent at all. I need help wiring it to the camper. I have yet to open it up this year. Can I power it off one of the ceiling lights? Looks like it only pulls 5amps. I could change to a LED if that helps. Thank you.

    Hi from Green Bay, WI

    Hello. I’m Ben. My wife and I picked up our 1996 Coleman Laredo last summer from its original owner. We have a 2 year old girl. We have yet to take it out but hope to in a few weeks. It’s about as basic as you can get. No heater and no roof vent. I purchased a roof fan and plan to also add a...
