HVAC does work on the the jump box. All plugs work.
I did trace the wiring from the battery all the way to the back and saw NO convert or any other box.

OK, we're cooking now. According to the WFCO distribution panel you have, it should be used with the WFCO 9800 series converters. They all basically look and operate the same, just have different DC amp ratings. I chose the 65 amp one for the example.

http://www.wfcoelectronics.com/Image...rDocs/14-3.pdf

The reverse polarity fuses are on the front/face of the converter....as you can see in the link above.

Just have to find the converter(s) placement now. They can also be in your pass thru storage compartment, or behind a panel accessed from the pass thru storage.

Using the junction box (pic #3 that you posted) as a starting point, see if you can back trace the wiring as to where it goes up into your RV....and see if it's near the pass thru storage.

Of course, if you have an enclosed underbelly, this may be harder to attempt/see.

Here's an example of one behind a panel in the pass thru:

Mine is buried behind the panel in the pass-through also. seems like a popular place to hide everything haha

There is no pass through. There is a large compartment under the bed with an outside hatch. Did not see anything there. On the back wall where the fuse box is there is also a closet with a compartment with outside only access from the rear of the unit. Saw nothing in there. There is also a compartment under the front bunk. Once again nothing visible there.
I did follow the wire just not all the way. I will do that in the next day or do.

possibly easier to chase the 120v wire from the converter breaker in the distribution panel?

unfortunately, short of any of us owning the exact camper and having already located the converter we cant be of much help on locating it.

The convertor needs ventilation so I would look in areas that may have some air circulation.

I would check this again, to see if there is a dummy panel maybe in the corner of the closet directly behind the distribution panel, or in that compartment.

Use a bright flashlight and look for corner screws in all compartments that access from the outside,the screws blend in good if it's carpeted.

My converter is located behind the circuit breaker panel. Just a few screws holding the panel in. Be sure and unplug the shore power first.
