Welcome to iRV2. Sorry you are having problems.

First place to check is the 12 volt fuses. Hopefully you have a volt ohm meter or a circuit tester.

Let us know what you find.

Hi. I am a qualified electrician. All fuses are good. I have no 12v any where in back or the ref. I can't find a schematic that shows where the 12 v comes from.

Might be easier to run a new 12v circuit than to find the old one.

You may have already checked this but many Fleetwoods have a master battery switch. Mine in right inside the door on the side of an overhead compartment. Two switches, one for the house and one for the chassis. They are return-to-center type switches.

If you've already tried that, then check the house solenoid in the BCC (Battery Control Center). They can be pulled apart and the contacts cleaned. Called a Latching Solenoid. That is, the coil is momentarily energized to close the solenoid and it holds it's position without power.

There are (at least in mine) fuses in the BCC, and also under a panel next to the Circuit Breakers.
