I cannot find any fuses blown. I was trouble shooting why my hot water relay will not close to supply the 120volts to the heating element. It works fine on propane but no power on the yellow wire to the circuit board or the relay when the 120 volt rocker switch was activated.

I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Try disconnecting the 12 volt batteries for about 5 minutes then reconnect them to see if this then resets the electronics to then work properly.If this does not work let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

I turned off the power for about 30 minutes then back on and still no DC power to this switch.

If you do not know this coach and have the wiring schematic I don't think you will be able to help. So I am not going to pay for phone call.
