Lost All DC Power Outlets

I have a Gulf Stream Independence and recently lost all of my DC power outlets in the coach. I am presuming it is a fuse and I have been searching all over for the location. I have checked the fuse box under the bed, in the basement compartment,under the dash. Has any one else had this problem or would have an idea of where to look for the fuse?

Park, check the circuit breaker on the inverter/converter. check to see if GFI breaker has tripped.

Was one of the places you checked inside the battery control center? Usually a black square plastic box with a removable cover. There are circuit breakers and fuses inside.

Are you stating that you lost all 12 volt DC to your coach or have you lost 120 volt AC at your duplex outlets when running your inverter from the 12 volt batteries? It makes a big difference where to start looking or suggesting how to correct your problem.

If it is the latter, 120 volt then others have made good suggestions where to start. If it is the former, then you may have lost your "Salesman Switch" relay located in one of your electrical bays. Not sure where yours would be but if you just bypass that relay and forget about the useless Salesman Switch and relay, you will never have to worry about it again.

This switch and relay controls all of the 12 volt DC to the coach.
