Battery Question

I recently purchased a 2010 Flagstaff 8528 BHSS 5th wheel. My issue is that while my battery powers my slide and the front jacks, the rest of the camper is dead- no power. I have checked the power panel- fuses are good. Is there another fuse somewhere between the battery and the power box? Is this a common problem? This is really frustrating! Any help is appreciated.

HEY almost retired----

Check the big red wire that comes off the battery, should be two GRAY terminal connectors that the red wire goes to. One is for the electric jacks, one should be for the rest of the RV. Feel on the very bottom of the gray terminals (there is a small pin reset button) you have to push up on the button to reset button of the gray circuit breaker.

Good luck

Thanks Daisy Boykin!

I checked the reset button on the terminal nearest the battery and found it wasn't the problem so I followed the power wire and it lead up to the hitch where, lo and behold, there is another terminal box. Hit the reset on this and it worked. I never would have solved this without this forum!
