Have you looked at the "Salesman switch" normally by the exit door. It will remove power from just about all items.

Will the engine start?

I don't know about this "Salesman's Switch", but to lose that many things simultaneously, it's more than just a single blown fuse.

So I'm wondering if you've got a bad common chassis ground somewhere that all those things are using.

Yes engine starts.
I checked fuse panel in compartment under driver and when I pull a fuse led doesn’t light up. Passenger in mid coach said she thought she smelled something burning

Is there a solenoid that supply’s the power to all these from the key switch?

Ignition switch

2013 Essex. I had the same issue last week after a short stop, restarted engine and no power to driver window,AC,and camera. I started driving and flipping the overhead fan switch when it all started to work again. Seems to me it is a ignition switch problem.

Problem Identified

I found that the Bussman 150 amp breaker/chassis battery disconnect was faulty. I never would have guess that the engine would start with the Bussman tripped. My Bussman tripped and I reset it but it did not actually reset. I sprayed with contact cleaner and worked it off/on several times and that made it work. I ordered a new Bussman 150 ampbreaker and will install it when it arrives. So far the old one is still working. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm having the same problem with my London Aire. Where is this breaker/chassis battery disconnect located? I've spent three days trying to figure out what is wrong with this thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ryan

Ryan, My BIRD relay is in the power bay (where the shore power wire is stored).
