Here's the narrative on how to locate the breaker from another posting way back when. Sorry I don't have a photo, but if Iggy checks this string, you'll get one.

He has photos of everything!!!!!!!!!!!!


My breaker is a black plastic box about an inch and a half square and about a quarter to a half inch thick. There should be a lever or button protruding from the breaker if its tripped.

The breaker, I'm guessing since I don't have the wiring diagram in front of me, should be on one of the major cables coming off the house batteries. Someone with more education and experience could give you more detail.

Sorry.........for more location info for the actual breaker......

Look under the stairs leading inside, look on the back wall near the battery distribution and connection box. Mine is located to the left. Sometimes the trip indicator is red, sometimes it's black.

Yep, Wwaller, I have the same coach you do and have the same jack control panel

The system only allows the movement of all at once or two together..front, rear, left or right. This prevents us from "racking" the chassis and cracking a windshield or messing up something else.

Never run the jacks without auxiliary electrical power. Either plug in or start generator. Some folks say just running the engine is ok since the alternator provides extra juice but, I don't run the jacks unless I have some 120V source.

My procedure is.
Place wooden blocks on the ground where the jacks will touch down.
Extend all until all four jacks touch the blocks.
Then, level front/back and or left/ right as required.

Sometimes a jack will not lower evenly when using extend all and I will use the front/ rear as necessary to get them down.

Remember to level before opening slides.

Let me know if you have other questions

Bill

What Bend said! Always have power to the battery system before attempt leveling or slide outs.

Unless your batteries are perfect, you'll overload and pop that breaker, which is good for about ten "pops".

I carry an extra, only about $25 on eBay.

When I bought my 2005 from All Valley RV in Acton, CA, the breaker was bypassed, but so badly with a loose connection, that I was able to figger it out and fix it.

The unit had never been sold, and was used for two years as a demonstrator to show off Georgetown's super features, i.e: backup alarm, theft alarm, dual pane windows, new big chassis, fiberglass roof, yadda,yadda, yadda.

By the time I got it, most of the bugs were gone.

I LOVE it!
