That helps. I misunderstood what you said earlier. I thought you both were talking about the transfer switch.

Removed and tested. Bad charger
But hey, at least I finally found it

Also, it looks as though the alternator does run through this board. So, not sure if I can just replace the charging portion or if the whole panel has to be replaced.

The DX3 uses an inverter charger. The Force does not...its just an inverter. If the inverter runs through there, it is just to hit a specific breaker for the TV or GFI circuit.

My DX3 does NOT have an inverter charger. Inverter only. I have the progressive panel converter charger. And Albarson, I wouldn't think the alternator runs through that panel... why would it? I could be wrong.. I'll have to investigate that one.

I would think the Alternator would be routed to an isolator to batteries. Who knows without diagrams.. its a crap shoot.. that is one thing I miss about my Wanderlodge.. it had all the wiring, plumbing, air suspension, all the diagrams that came with my purchase.

Electrical/Plumbing schematics

Last year it was indicated we MIGHT get schematics in the future. We are still waiting. Its these type of problems that would be much easier and less time consuming to troubleshoot. All systems must be designed with schematics, so we know they did exist at one time.
There is a Editorial Series about the "Death Spiral of the RV Industry" that rings true for many of our RV experiences. Its enlighting.

And some were posted. Its just a matter of getting them into a format that is legible as most are layered CAD drawings.

Sorry, should have prefaced that it was an inverter charger in the 2017's and some late model 2016's.
