D​o you have one battery or two? Are you plugged into shore power or not?

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 4 months ago

M​ost of the time this is caused by low voltage and then the shortstop breaker near the batteries trips. By code they have to be within 18" of the batteries. May have a red cover over them. Black button on the end with the copper post that you push in to reset. If you only have one battery this will be a constant problem. Anything with power equipment has to have two batteries and being plugged into shore power helps keep them from running down too quickly. See the attached photo of what these look like. Please get back to me if we need to dig deeper into this as all follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=BqT81%2fi2&id=8D4939A7F0965679E3E29C89B963B0D9C24CDC15&thid=OIP.BqT81_i2snOEu0WIlAltMAHaG6&mediaurl=https%3a%2f%2fwww.waytekwire.com%2fimages%2fitems%2f46375BFL.gif&exph=560&expw=600&q=shortstop+breaker+photo&simid=608020010927391581&selectedIndex=0
