Ok, might seem like a silly question, but are you sure you've replaced the right 30A? I know on my trailer, there's a 30A near the battery that runs to the tongue jack. Supposedly, there's a separate 30A (or maybe a breaker) that runs back to the converter/distro in the trailer. I'm not sure where it is yet as I haven't had to look for it. I've only ever replaced the tongue jack one.

If yes, then it's time to get out a test probe and start checking for where you lose power. It's most likely going to be somewhere along that line between battery and your distro panel. Or possibly in the panel itself.

The 'lift jack' is connected indipendantly of the rest of the camper; Are you positive the battery disconnect switch is in the correct position? Cycle it a couple of times and try the other position.

dannyabear - you are the winner. Thank you for being such a great nag and making me go back and check the disconnect switch again. I was positive that it was in the correct position - but it wasn't. Everything works great now. Plus I got an education on where all the fuses and circuit breakers are. Thanks to everyone for all the great help. This is an awesome forum.

Don't you just love this resource? I learn more from following posts like this than from my own questions. Knowledge stored for future use.

With old age comes wisdom (and forgetfullness) It's always a good idea to have someone else double check what you KNOW. Don't ask how I know this..........

Glad I could help, I have recieved much on this site myself.

We had a similar episode when we were selling our Motorhome. We were busy cleaning it out and wiping everything down for the new owners. The DW went out later to get her cleaning supplies and non of the 12 volt lights or appliances worked. We're panicking til I started reading the owners manual and found the battery disconnect switch on the dash had been pushed.[ I had never used that switch before]. It was quite a relief to figure that out just before the new buyer showed up!!!

A cheap 12Volt test light is invaluable looking for a problem fuzes may look good but a quick test on both sides tells you for sure.
