Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Good morning! I have an RV repair facility and work on these systems for a living. Please give me a few minutes to type up an answer here for you. And don't be alarmed if I don't get right back to you when you respond. We work on more than one question at a time here when it is busy like it is now. I may be on a phone chat with another customer and typically those last less than 5 minutes. Your patience is appreciated! Thanks! Randall

Ok
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

I get it that you can't be without coffee, Kim! Start by checking the breakers in the load center. Flip them off and back on again. Then check the GFCI outlets and push the reset button to reset it. If it won't reset it may be damaged or it might be that there is no AC power to it. If you have an inverter/charger then check the breakers on that to see if one tripped. And don't overlook the power source itself. I hope this points you in the right direction here. Please get back to me again if you need more on this. Thanks! Randall

Where is load center. 1st time camping in this
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

I see you asked for a phone chat and I can do this for you as soon as your bank clears the payment for this upgrade in service. It is probably just a Fraud Alert and that can take some time so please be patient. Randall

Low down near the floor level or on the bed pedestal. Dark brown or black. Most are about 20" square. Open it up to expose the fuses and service breakers.

Most of these are in the cabin area in the kitchen or by the entry door.
