OK

Give me a few mins to type a response.....

SO that indicator panel should use a printed circuit board and if all the fuses are good the board could be the problem. What I would do is check all your exterior fuses and breakers as well. Go to the battery and make sure you do not have a fuse on a smaller wire near the battery that is blown. I am going to pull a print right now and have a look at this for you to see if it gives a dedicate fuse location to that panel.... Please give me several mins to look that up...

I will try my best, ***** ***** some time to look at the prints.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 11 months ago

Going to give you prints as I find them which might help out as you can see where the main power and ground run into it... Click HERE to view, I am still looking at other prints. On one page you can see the board I was talking about it is PCB

Ok, we are about 15 minutes away from our next camping spot and then we will start checking everything out and give you some feedback
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 11 months ago

IF you click HERE you will see a row of round re settable breakers, these would be outside and the removable panel would say automotive and coach circuit breakers, make sure no breakers are tripped in that box. Still looking as well.

You will have to look at the first print and see if you have voltage going up to the panel, if no voltage then it has to be a blown fuse, tripped breaker or wiring issue, if you have voltage then it sounds like the PCB board..

I will be in and out today so if you do not get a response right away do not worry, I always respond back when I can.

On the automotive coach and circuit breakers, how do you know if they are tripped? And if so is just pushing them enough to reset them?
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 11 months ago

Yes they pop out when they trip so they should stay in when they reset.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Ok, we triple checked them, they are all in.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 11 months ago

You are going to have to look at the prints and see if you are getting voltage to the panel. I think it showed a black and white wire that supplies the voltage to panel. I will take another look to see if there are anymore hidden fuses... Robert

The only other fuses/breakers we can find are a panel under the refrigerator. 6 breakers and about 10-12 fuses. We have checked all fuses there and switched all the breakers off and back on. We will double check the prints now
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The panel has a button for the generator to start and stop and that is working fine. We can turn it on and off using the button. However we cannot check any levels, and our vent Hood above the oven and both were working fine earlier.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 11 months ago

Umm the fuse for that panel is a 15 amp fuse in the interior box. Click HERE see last page right corner. Make sure that fuse has voltage, get a test light and check, if you had a loose connection on the back side you would never know by just looking at the fuse. IF that fuse is good the panel should be working and all the functions which points towards that PCB board.

Hope this helps. IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page....
