Hi I am new to the group .
We just purchased a 2016 Rockwood Roo 21 DK and there does not seem to be any power to the stereo . The previous owner states it worked the last time he used the camper . The fuse looks to be good . Any ideas ?

Fuse in breaker panel, or fuse in-line in the stereo itself ?

As TheWolfPaq says, it could be an in-line fuse. You may have to pull the stereo from the cabinet to find this fuse.

I discovered something in our Roo 23IKSS that may apply here. If you have a disconnect switch (ours is mounted under our LP tanks), look for a yellow wire attached to the battery side of the disconnect switch. On our Roo, that is the wire that powers the radio. Follow the wire for a little bit and you may find an in-line auto-type fuse. Check to see if that fuse has blown.

I guess FR wired ours that way so turning-off the disconnect switch did not power-off the radio and cause the station presets to be lost.

Long shot: The OEM $7 radio in my Roo has speaker settings A and B but there are no B-speakers so the radio is silent if the switch has been accidentally set to B.

Is it just the radio not working or do other things that run off the battery work like your inside light?
