No 12volt Unplugged

Recently purchased a 2014 Wildcat 327CK. The 12 volt only works when plugged in. Slides and hydraulic legs work. I understand there is a switch that can turn off. Anyone know where it is?

On my Micro Lite, the battery disconnect switch is under the gas bottles.

Our battery disconnect switch is in the basement on the street side, high on the right side back wall next to the water service panel. It's a spring loaded handle that hangs on a cord when in the disconnected state. To connect, insert the handle and turn.

yep, that's a resettable fuse that usually trips when the battery gets hooked up backwards.
happens a lot when owners are reinstalling the battery and get the wires backwards.

not saying that you did this, just that this is the most common cause.

I have to disagree as the this being the most common cause of tripping this fuse. I firmly feel that the most often cause is RV Gremlins. They do it just to mess with us.
