Battery Control Center/Panel

I'm posting this for the newbies who may not be aware of this hook up in their rigs. Mine is on a 2012 Lexington, located in the inside step well into the coach. Don't know the location in other rigs, but it's probably somewhere very close to the battery. This panel is where your house batteries connect to the coach.
The battery control center contains the fuses, or in my case (don't know when they went from fuses to circuit breakers) circuit breakers for the slide outs.
Also has fuses or breakers for the electric awning, and the arctic pack.
Most important, there is a small reset switch, so if everything cuts off, that maybe the first thing to check.
My panel, after removing, on the back, has the location of each fuse/circuit breaker, and what it circuit it controls.
Just throwing this out in general for those who aren't aware of it's purpose. Very vague in owners manual, and most sales people don't even know it exists.

Grumpy,
Thanks for posting this..
Had an issue with this box in our 2015 Sunseeker 3050sf I thought I would share with the forum...
On our annual Labor Day weekend campout I was sitting outside when I heard a "weird" noise... sounded almost like a battery sounds when it's charging...
That got me in the general search direction.
When I opened up this compartment, there was a puddle of water in the bottom and everything was damp inside.
I should note that it was 100 degrees and 200% humidity.
I dried everything out with a fan and everything is functioning normally (for now).
No one I contacted at Forest River or Precision products had ever heard of this happening.
It's got me wondering if maybe it was condensation from the refrigerator somehow getting into the box...
I'm keeping an eye on it....

That sounds like a reasonable assumption
I'm sure you checked your vent hose for blockage
