2860 Power Distribution Panel

I may have missed this during my walk through on delivery, or old-age CRS has hit, but can anyone enlighten me on where the main 30 Amp breaker and the 12v distribution panel is located within a Sunseeker 2860?

My Sunseeker was plugged into shore power at the house (dedicated 30 Amp breaker on the house) and my coach batteries were dead after three days of being away. I need to see if the breaker has tripped for some reaason or another. As a note, everything was shut down during my absence.

Thanks in advance.

Mine (Coachmen) was under reefer. When you find it also look for 15 amp brk. To converter power feed. From converter to battery is an inline breaker or resettable fuse 12 volt maybe 50 amp.

That 12 volt fuse will be closer to the battery.

I am so much of a novice with everything related to electric besides changing a lightbulb but here's my input...

For my '13 3100...

There is an electric access panel to something (not sure what) in the stepper door area on the left as you go in.

There is a fuse panel (for the coach stuff) in the bed base on the passenger side.

Thanks,

I went out and started digging. The panel at the entrance is the control panel (fuses and breakers) for the coach batteries. I found the main panel in the base for the bed and when I looked I found one of the 15 Amp breakers was tripped. This is a 2014 2860 and I had to take it in to have the generator fuel pump replaced (1.2 hours of run time on the gen) and I don't know if they forgot to reset the breaker after service or if something tripped the breaker. I am going to monitor the situation and see what happens.

The good news is that the 12V bus is in the same panel and it appears as thopugh there are 5 or 6 empty slots for additional assecories (e.g. a macerator pump hookup).

Thanks to all for the replies.

Dstankov, we are in the fuel pump club. 2014 2900 and mine went bad at 2.6 hrs. All good now.

My dealer's service advisor said they were having some generator fuel pump issues on the 2013 and 2014 Sunseekers. However, I did not allow the time to go to waste. While they were waiting the 3 days for a fuel pump I had them install vent covers on the two vents and the fantastic fan and adjust the topper on the bedroom slide. The topper was not allowing the slide to fully extend. So far the fule pump and tooper adjustment are the only issues found and I am happy with the rig.

generator fuel pump issues?
fuel pump and generator? Seems like two different things.. please explain what happened... I have a new 2860 on order and would like to know how and what to check before I get on the road.

Thanks
