I have two switches under my sink, one for overhead power and one for the water pump.

I know my water pump does NOT have to be on for the overhead lights and fan to work since I only turn it on when I plan on using the water. And early camping like next week, I never fill the water tanks due to possible freezing weather.

switch

Thank you! We might get into the 50's next week but nothing worse. The water pump rocker switch is adjacent to the fuse box (I hear the newer models have breakers) and my lights can also work independently of the pump. Right now neither are working thus my dilemma. I left the camper at the site for the week, should have brought it home to test with shore power! Well, plenty of lamps and water will offset this for the while.

The switches under the sink/stove. Right is water pump, left is overhead electrical...

sink switch

Found the problem...an inline fuse under the trailer tongue, spade type 25 amp and that was that!

Our old pup had a micro switch that tripped when the end slides were in. No plunger.

switch

Good! I could not find the same activation switch so I found one that I can press manually and have the lights working.

Just an update, I purchased the switch directly from Forest River with a number of other items also.

Part # 10-2683 – kill switch – silver push button
Cost $ 11.64 each

When I went to install it, I was going to install it between a splice going up to the lights, but then I found a rogue set of wires bundled up with the wires going to the water pump. I pulled back the taped wrapping and found a wire labeled 12 Volt. It was a single wire that had two female spades and a shunt between them... I pulled it apart and all my lights went out. I then drilled a hole for my switch, attached the wires, installed the switch and everything works as it should.

f5moab, Thanks for the information and pictures. It got me where I needed to be.

Mike

Glad to be of help. So, do you wonder if someone forgot to install the switch, or was the dealer supposed to install it?

I believe the dealer should have done it. It looks like whoever was doing the wiring didn't know what they were doing. I've never seen one without that switch.
