The reason I asked is that that circuit breaker is located indifferent places depending on whether you have a 5th wheel type frame or a travel trailer type frame. (pop ups fall here).

for future reference, it's always helpful to post year, brand and model of RV when asking questions.
that's why many of us have it in our signature line. that way we don't have to re-post the info, everytime we post a new question about our RV.

I have been reading your advise as I have a similar problem with the DC power to my "new to me" 2011 Rockwood Freedom 1910 pop-up trailer. The 110 current works fine. The power lift works fine (which works off the battery, of course). I have no 12V current to the lights and ceiling fan inside the trailer. I have replaced all fuses including the one just off the battery which did need to be replaced (the other fuses were okay). I replace the momentary switches that are engaged when the sink/stove galley is lifted in place. You mentioned something about a circuit breaker about 18 to 20 inches from the battery. Do you mean the fuse or is there something else under the front tongue that needs to be checked. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Lesley.

Most pop-ups have a safety switch to cutoff all DC power to the camper when the sink is swung down. Put yours down and you'll see the paddle switch between top and bottom of counter. Try to operate the switch by hand and see if you can get it to "throw". If not get out the meter, it may be bad.

Its possible that you may have one of these down on the frame rail.

It is also a possibility that your galley switch is stuck or has failed .
This switch shuts off 12v power when pop up is down.

That fixed our problem...Fingers crossed! Yes, it was that fuse! But we also had a short on the electric plug in from the camper. The one that would plug into a campsite electic outlet or generator. When we wiggled that the alarms would "almost" go off. So replaced that as well ( added a new plug in end). Everything working fine at the house again but hopefully will work at the beach next weekend! Simple fix but thankfully this site/forum pointed us in the right direction! Not new to the pop up at all...But when stuff happens...We are so glad we have this site to help us! She's no young chicken but we love her dearly! I'm sure someone can help if this doesn't ! Good Luck and happy camping )

I'm no mh expert but yes you should have fuses out in the engine compartment and or under the dash.

Did you check your battery? Just an after thought...What about ground fault receptical(sp*) and your ground wires? Those wires needed a little cleaning as well

Thank you for your response. I did replace the switches you are talking about...there are two. Also, I did depress the switches by hand. Still no DC power inside. I do not know what to try next.

Did The GF actually reset? (It will click and pop back out) One in and one button out?

Turbs suggested the circuit breaker or resetable fuse on the frame rail between the battery and the interior of the coach. Can be in the open or in a small plastic enclosure. Need a meter or test light to check.

Then can be all rusty and getting no power through as well.
