Dash A/C, Fog lights, Jacks no power

Have a 2008 Gulf Stream Independence that the Dash A/C blower has been going on and off for a few months. Then the Jack control panel did not power up and with the jacks down I was able to pull the park brake release and put in gear and no alarms, shut down and did again the system engaged and retracted, but no power now, also realized last night on the way home the Fog lamps would also be working and not working with the others. Now no power to any of these accessories. Any help on where to start, master grounds for these or wiring diagrams.

Thanks

Well mine is a 2005 Sun Voyager. I called Millie at Gulf Stream and she sent me all new labels for my relays, fuse panels and and major circuit breakers (contactors), 80 amp breakers. The power contactors have push to test buttons and can be checked even with power off by pushing the buttons and see them trip. (may require power but I think I have done it without power)

I have found the DC fuses I searched for in the left side forward storage bay. The battery switches and some more power contactors in the right side forward storage bay.

I have a lot of books that came with our coach but have yet to find a coach wiring diagram.

My suggestion is to find the fuses for the systems that are acting funny and I bet you find them all in the same fuse panel. Follow the wiring from that panel to the main ground and the other positive power wires to see if you find something that is common to all of the systems.

I hope this helps. Great thinking on the getting the jacks up. I am filing that one.

I have a different coach but recently had a continuous duty relay/solenoid that energized with the key to apply power to the fuse panel that supplied power to those very same items plus others. It started out intermittent and failed soon after, once I found the relay it was an easy fix.
Mine was located near the chassis fuse panel.
I tried to attach a photo but the website won't let me.
Good luck with the repair.

I find it a good thing that these coaches seem to have a lot of "common" features in electrical load distribution.

Something else that I did when I got this coach was buy a can of 2-26 electrical corrosion preventative and cleaner. If I saw a corroded connection I took it apart and wire brushed the eyelets and post. Then sprayed every electrical connection I could find and I try to keep them all looking a little wet.

Mornin' y'all,


I have a 2005 BT Cruiser 5290. I put the slides out - no problem. Now I am unable to pull them back in. I assume its electrical. I checked the fuse box by the bathroom door, all good. Is anyone aware of where the fuses for the slides are. Thank you,


Jones

I have a call in to a friend that had a BTcruiser. But in the meantime...

My Class A requires that the engine be off and the drivers seat fully forward before the rooms will move. Maybe that is it.

If not re-post and I will get more info from my friend.

Well he said the parking brake must be on for rooms to move. I guess you can start and move the coach and if you do the parking brake would have to be off, it must be reset to move the rooms.
