.....compartment inside or under the bed. About the size of a pack of cigs. It may be a bad or tripped shortstop breaker and when I get home I can grab a photo of one for you. That is a common problem.

Right under the front of the tongue OR underneath a small cover where the wires go into the body.

Or right above the batteries. Red cap over them. By code they have to be within 18" of the batteries.

Well, just finished looking where you suggested: no luck. I rechecked all the possible compartments inside and outside the trailer, including under the bed mattress and couch.
If I knew how to send you photos, I would send the two fuse areas and two electrical boxes under the trailer near the slideout motor. Any suggestions on that?

Can you attach them to an e-mail to me? ***@******.***

You are most welcome! I will watch for your photos......

I think it may be time to call in a mobile tech to track this down for you, Jim. A good one can find this in a few minutes and help you resolve this. Ask the local RV parks who they recommend.
