If you have this problem, this could be the reason.

We had our 2013 Sunseeker on the road for most of the summer. Hope that I can help others out if they have the same trouble. In the heat of New Mexico we could not get the air to come on when we stopped for the night. Checked out the usually, breakers, power supply,thermostats , went up on the roof. Lastly took the cover off of the A C in the ceiling where the filter is, a 6 prong wire connecter hung down, it was not pushed in to the locked position at the factory and after 2,500 miles it worked all the way out, pushed in securely and have had no problem since.
At about 8,000 miles one night could not get any 110 volt power to anything . Again checked out all the easy fixes and found nothing wrong. Would not work on shore power or generator. Got under the bed and took the cover off of the transfer switch box, the screw holding the cover on had been screwed into a wire connecter and in time worked in to the wire. It had melted the connecters together as it had shorted out the hot wires. Rewired properly and got lucky it had not burned any switches or other components up. Also lucky it had not started a fire under the bed, could be I would not be here to type this up. Will try to post a few pictures of this. Hope this helps someone else out.
Love having this forum to go to.

I popped a 25KVA 480/240 transformer once doing that same exact thing.

Ran a cover screw right into one of the primary leads. Took out the lights for a whole building. Whoopsie! It can happen to anyone. Thats why Louis Francois Clement Bregue invented the fuse.

You and your family are very lucky. You should get on your knees every night and thank the man upstairs that you were fortunate enough to have the knowledge to locate and then fix the problem.
