where is the 12 volt dc breaker?

I am assuming that there is a 12 volt DC circuit breaker some where in the coach. Thinking my converter is not getting the job done. Anyone used a reset in a sunseeker?

I may be wrong, but most of the 12v circuits are controlled by fuses...not breakers.

I think there is a breaker in the battery compartment mounted on the back wall.

Had this, apologize in advance for the poor quality. Hope it helps.
There are 2 30amp 12volt fuses at the inverter/battery charger. There is a 120volt circuit breaker in the control panel that powers the inverter. You should be able to use a multimeter at the inverter to test for 12volt output.

The OP may be talking about a 12v resettable circuit breaker. On a TT, its tucked up along the A-frame.
Not sure where it would be in a Motorhome.

There is a resetable circuit breaker for the DC output side of the converter located in the battery control center. The BCC is typically mounted in the stepwell.

On our 2011 Sunseeker Model 3100, there is no circuit breaker associated with the convertor. Your 2300 may be similar. There is a red 6 awg cable that goes directly from the convertor output to 12 volt side of the electrical distribution panel. If you have a WFCO convertor, it has an internal fuse. As posted previously, the WFCO has two external fuses, but they are to protect from incorrect power input polarity, not 12 volt output. On mine they are 35 amps and the rated output is 55 amps DC, so they are obviously not on the output side.

If you decide to check into it, maybe the attached WFCO 8900 Troubleshooting Guide will help.

Correction:

Our 2011 Model 3100 had a WFCO 9855 deck mount convertor. The guide I attached to my previous post is for an 8900 series that has the convertor mounted on the power distribution center. The internals may be the same. I downloaded the troubleshooting chart for the 9800 series and I attached it here. It does not mention a fuse.

I replaced the convertor a few years ago when it started acting up, but before I threw it away I had a need for a high capacity battery charger. I tried it and it worked. It may not work again but it did what I wanted that time. I looked at it this morning and it's riveted together. I didn't open it up, but if you open yours let us know if you find a fuse.

If the problem is the coach battery supplying but not charging, look for a small circuit breaker in the small charging line at the battery box and press the reset button.
