Satellite controller power

I have a 2011 Phaeton and have lost power to the satellite controller located over the passengers seat. Looked for a breaker or fuse without any luck. Any ideas?

Dish is up and I am unable to lower.....help please!

My King Dome gets it's 12V power through the fuse for the overhead map light circuit,
However since a roof top satellite antenna is often an added on accessory the installer could have wired into most any 12V circuit.
Me thinks you will have to check every 12V fuse you can find until you find the one protecting the satellite controller.

You have a Trav'ler antenna? Your looking for A/C power from one of the outlets in the overhead cabinet, correct?

OK, you need to look at circuit breakers (not sure where they are in your coach) or this could be a GFCI protected circuit and you will need to look for the master GFCI outlet. One's in the bathroom and the other one can be ??? You may need to look in the storage bays as well.

If all else fails, get an extension cord and find a circuit that has power and lower the antenna.

Satellite controller power

Thank you very much for the responses. Was able to contact Winguard support and they walked me through resetting the controller and determining that the small fuze located in the back of the box had failed. Replaced that fuze and we are back in business.
