Rkss electric service

Our 2018 27 rkss has the breaker box and service under the entertainment cabinet (television stand). I found an additional service with fuses but no breakers in the bottom of the cabinets in the bathroom. Anyone know if there's any distinguishing reason for the 2 locations? Or is it just overflow of space from the main service?

Thanks in advance

generally you are going to have both a FUSE panel, and a BREAKER box, or a combination of both. FUSE panel is for your 12v devices such as lights, fans, awning, slides, etc., while your BREAKER box is for your 120v devices, outlets, and appliances when you are plugged in.
Whether they are separate or in totally different locations matters not, though most rigs have a combined box with both, including your converter/charger.

depending on what their labels say, it's just a secondary fuse panel, probably to be closer to whatever source they are tied to.

my coach has a fuse panel for the House, in the same 'box' as the Breakers, one in the Inverter bay, and another in the front driver compartment... that's a lot of fuses.

The small 'service' you found under the bathroom is the remote receiver. It has relays and fuses to operate the remote functions.

Just be very careful of the single wire hanging off of the module. It is the wireless antenna.
