You had mentioned before that the battery controls the heater fan, I am thinking it would control the roof lights and fantastic fan too. Guessing the outlets and water pump would be 110 only?
Could be the reverse polarity fuse as noted in previous message.
Could also be a switch.
If yours is like mine, and they are similar, when you raise the sink/stove up into place, you close one or two switches. On mine, one switch closes a circuit to allow overhead lights to work, one closes a circuit to allow the water pump to run. So to get the overhead lights to work (and the water pump), the switch must be closed.
Mine are silver switches just below where the sink sits. You can manually push it (them) in.
These switches prevent the light from being left on when the top is lowered for two reasons. One, the incandescent bulbs used in the overhead lights can burn the side panels since they might be resting on them when the top is down. At a minimum this will burn a big hole in something, I guess worse case scenario is it will set the trailer on fire.
And if you forget to turn off the water pump switch, this prevents the pump from running while the top is down, to prevent damage to the pump and trailer if faucet was left open, you had water in the tank and the pump is pumping water into the trailer sink and to the floor.
