fleetwood: batteries..off...my 2001..of the fuses, circuit breakers…

My house batteries are not...
My house batteries are not charging w/shore cord plugged into 110VAC. I think my inverter eaither needs reset, or a wire is off.

Where is the 110/12VDC power inverter located on my 2001 34' Class A Fleetwood Southwind? I looked under the range where all of the fuses, circuit breakers etc. are...not there. Have looked all over the unit and cannot locate it.

Hi There!!!

 

Thanks for Choosing Just Answer....

 

I beleive the power converter is located on the floor under the panel board in the galley. Looking at THIS print it is also possible the converter is in a luggage compartment and I would suspect this would be in the exterior storage bay under the area of the control center. Fleetwood has always hidden the converters some other places would include under the bed. The print I sent was for an early 2003 storm but they should not have changed all the much... Hope this helps....

 

Thank You!!! Please hit ACCEPT for my efforts, Positive feedback and BONUS welcomed!!!
