What am I Looking at in the Circuit Box?

This is the inverter / circuit breaker / fuse box on my new 2019 31BHSC. I want to buy replacement fuses to have on hand just in case, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at here.

In this first image, I see the 15 amp fuses well enough and I guess that's a 1 amp fuse. What is the large 12v30amp thing in the middle? What are the two things that look like fuses in the upper right hand corner labeled 5E?

I'm also wondering what the green light is telling me in the second image.

I think if you turn your SE fuses upside down, you'll find they say 35.

Ha! Part of the mystery solved! Thanks. Any idea what the 12v 30 amp is?

You mean CONverter, not INverter.

Good point. Iíll get the hang of this sooner or later. Iíll do some basic wiring at home, but I donít understand this TT electrical system well enough to do anything more than kill the power and change a fuse.

The 12v30amp is a auto-reset breaker

The 2 5E or 35 amp fuses are the reverse polarity fuses. If you connect the battery backwards those will blow to protect your converters charger section.

I don't have an idea about the green light.

Is the 12v30amp for the slide outs? Do you know if it's replaceable like the other fuses?

I don't know if it's for the slideouts. Slides are usually wired directly to the 12vdc system because of the amount of amps needed and fused separately with an inline fuse. They are not connected to the fuse panel. Most manuals say to have your TT plugged into shore power when operating the slides. That auto-reset breaker should be removable as it just plugs into a fuse slot. You could remove it then try everything until you find what doesn't work. Is there anything written on the label of the door to the panel.

The slideout on our Rockwood Roo trailer had its own 30amp fuse along the frame, next to the bottom of the slideout.

What brand and model power center is that?

It's interesting to say the least.
