Breaker panel

Hey all, I have a 2022 forest river forester, 2401b. My wife had the air on and then started cooking in the microwave. A breaker was tripped I'm sure. Now none of my outlets work. Where do I find the breaker panel? Checked all the fuses under driver side seat, all good.
Any ideas? Please and thanks.

I don't own a Forester but try on/under the bed somewhere. Should be a black plastic door that pops open.

Thanks. Found the panel under the fridge.
All good.

Another question, I don't seem to have a way to turn "off" my air conditioner? It only displays High, Low, Auto. I don't have a panel either. So how can I turn it off?

Thanks

I can't help with turning off the AC, sorry. What did you find when you got to your breaker panel? Was something tripped? You should be able to run the AC and microwave at the same time on a 30A service. I'm assuming you have a 30A service. You'll need to shut off the water heater, and possible the convertor.

Where are you seeing hi, low, auto? Is it on the thermostat or the AC itself?

EDIT:
I see you started another thread. I'll replay there.
What make A/C unit and do you have a thermostat?

All R/Vs are not the same. There are dozens of combinations to using an A/C unit depending on make/model/trim level.

A photo of your controls would help too.


Did you find a breaker tripped once you found the power distribution box?
If you have a 30a service, one must be mindful of the appliances used at the same time. Many folks learn to turn off the fireplace or water heater (electric element) when wanting to use things like a hair dryer or coffee maker/toaster.

I believe if you tap the Cool button, it will turn off. "High, Low, Auto" is only the fan setting.

Just curious, which breaker tripped? the main 30A? If so do you understand why and that you need to manage loads like the water heater, convertor,....

10-4.
And that is the thermostat albeit connected to a remote temperature sensor.

I mentioned this (along with a photo) in their other thread asking the same question.

Yes it was the 30 Amp. I believe it tripped because she had coffee pot on, and air and then she started using convection oven. Too much of a load I guess. So we will pay more attention next time.

Will try that next time it is running. So what you are saying, while it "on" (cool), I can hit the Cool tab and it will turn off?

Thanks

Yep, too much of a load. That combo will surely do it, but easy fix (reset breaker and wait until coffee is done before using convection oven).
