Cool No power

I have a 2014 Solera and when the battery disconnect is off nothing works. Not even when I am plugged into external power. I sit possible for the breaker to be trip and if so where is it located? It appears that the battery is dead. I can start the engine and connect the disconnect and everything works.

On our 2012 Solera "S" the breaker for the converter occasionally trips when I connect to shore power. It is in the breaker/fuse "power center" under the stove on our unit. Plastic cover over the breakers and fuses with "thumb nail" slots to pop cover off. Turn breaker off completely and back on to reset.

Look in your power distribution center for an open current limiter for the house batteries.

Great! I now check each time I connect to shore power - easy to do, just push the battery button on the control panel after shore power hook-up and check for four lights.

Just be aware that "4 lights" does not mean the batteries are charging; just that there is more than 12.7 volts available to the camper.

If there is a current path from the camper to the batteries, they will charge; if not; they won't. There still could be an open current limiter between the converter (makes 12 volt DC from 120 volt AC shore power) and the actual batteries.

Very true, Herk. I am just checking to ensure the converter circuit breaker isn't tripped.
Regards,
Jim
