Fan under the bed

We had very little power to our 2004 255. This unit is new to us. We found one circuit breaker that had to be reset. When we did that we got full power., but there is a fan going on and off under the bed. Does anyone know what this is? We checked the books but could not find it.

Converter cooling fan.
Your converter is what charges your battery.

Takes 110 voltage and converts it to 12.

I have never been in a unit like you own, however, if it is a fan cycling while plugged into 110V, I'm guessing it is the cooling fan on your inverter or converter ( not sure which you have). again, you'd need to actually have the inverter/converter mounted UNDER the bed for it to be what I suggest.

Warning!
If the breaker was tripped there could be an underlying issue with the converter.

Keep an on it.

Good luck and have fun!

I just went into the coach and found that if I turn on a light the fan goes on. Is this because the batteries are charging. They were depleted.

The fan is load sensitive.
The more the load the faster the fan will go to cool the converter.
So yes a light may make the fan run faster or in your case louder.
