Is there a circuit breaker for this??

Out of the blue, my coach started acting up...

After swapping batteries, everything functions perfectly with the exception of a few items that went out completely.

The retractable door steps, awning motor, and rearview camera all decided to stop working all at the same time.

Now, with everything breaking at once, one would safely assume that there's a single switch or fuse for all of them. Well, I checked all of the above and everything is in order.

I have a 2012 Georgetown 351DS that we absolutely love, short of this new problem.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

When you swapped out the batteries could you have missed hooking up a small gage wire?

Did you put the cables on the batteries backwards?

I very well might have now that you mention it. I'll have to try this today when I get home. Thank you!

I seriously think I didn't reverse the polarity as everything else in the coach functions as advertised.

Everything you mentioned that had stopped working is a DC voltage component so you have blown the 40 amp fuses in converter/inverter. Check those, you blew them if you hooked the batteries backward...........

What dc fuses did you check? These items might be fused thru the coach 12 volt instead of the Rv side might want to check those fuses also
