Hi there. We have just got a 2002 Jayco Freedom. What has hit us for a six is the centurion 3000 box under the club lounge. Can anybody help us out with this as we have no lights in the van. Is their suppose to be a battery, if so where is it suppose to be? We have never seen or dealt with this type of set up before so any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

As far as I am aware the box is just a 240 volt to 12 volt transformer which supplies all the lights with 12 volts when plugged into the mains 240 volt supply. When plugged into your cars 12 volt system this will also power the same lights however it should automatically use power from the 240 volt mains when available. Do your power points work when plugged into the mains or is it only the lights not working?

All other power points work fine, AC, fridge etc. It's just the lights that aren't working. Checked the unit further tonight, it has 6 blade fuses in the front and one glass fuse behind front panel, all tested fine. The lights do come on when the car is in reverse.

That’s an easy fix as far as 12 volt power from the vehicle then, however the lights should work on 240 volt as well. The Jayco manual states that if connected to 240 volt the roof must be up position and that as an added precaution they are fitted with a cut off switch. Do you have the roof up?
As far as the lights working when car in reverse that can be fixed by disconnecting number 2 pin (should be the black wire) from either the socket or plug and running power to it.
I would take the black wire from the Jayco and fit it with an Anderson plug and then have an Anderson plug fitted to the vehicle and bypass the 7 pin plug. You still need to find why lights not working on 240 volt, maybe faulty cut out switch?

I just had a look at mine and found the lights work on 240 volt while roof is down. I read the manual again and noticed it says “all camper roofs” so I assume that camper trailers are fitted with cut out and not pop-tops. So please disregard my earlier post about cut out switch for your van.
Cheers Tony

Shae,

I had an 04 Freedom and it came with the box as described above. There was wiring for a battery but not the battery itself. The standard location was in the boot but I had mine installed inside under the lounge. This was quite common.

Hope this helps.

Hi Shae M,

Many of the Jayco models have a battery switch which connects the battery to the house 12 volt system. It is usually marked "Battery Switch". See if yours has one and try that if so. Many of the later Jaycos have them

I am not familiar with Jayco Freedoms so that is the best I can think of.

Cheers, Bruce.
