1999 Pace Arrow Vision lost partial power to dash

I have a 1999 Pace Arrow Class A motor home 37c with a Ford Trident V10 engine. Three weeks ago I brought the coach home to prep for a Thanksgiving trip. Backed into driveway and hooked up electrical with an adaptor to a 120 outlet. (have done this before). Went to level the coach so I could start the fridge and had no power to the jack control center. Also, turns out to have no power to climate control switches, front window fans, backup camera (which I had just used to back into driveway), radio, auto headlights (but headlights still work in the manual setting). Checked all the fuses and breakers, all were good. The next weekend found a burnt terminal on the board in the battery control center. Bought and replaced board in center. Upgrading from a B-version to a P-version. Still no luck. Anyone know what I am missing here?

I answered your post over on RV Forum, but I'll do it here as well. I think the problem is with your Chassis battery Disconnect solenoid. Follow the procedures in this document and I think you'll find your problem. Bypass the solenoid (jumper around it) if you have to, to prove it bad.

Good luck with the "project", Sam.
I meant to ask if the engine ignition was included in the things that didn't work. Will the engine start and run? That might change my diagnosis a bit...

Yes, the engine starts and coach is drivable, no problem there. As far as I can tell the only things wrong are what I initially listed.

In the batterty control center, on the left bottom corner are two resetable circuit breakers. they are about 1 inch square. There is a small black tab that sticks out of the bottom. Push this tab in a reset the breaker.

Those breakers are for the coach (house) battery functions. They have nothing to do with the dash functions. It's sounding like the OP has a missing ground in the dash area.

I have a 1998 Pace Arrow. When these breakers open, I lose power to the dash fans.

Tried the battery the battery control trouble shooting guide and the two resetable circuit breakers, still no luck. Have a guy here at work looking it over now. Hopefully he see's something I didn't. Thanks for your help everyone.

The guy I have looking at it just walked in and said the GFI's in the coach are tripped and won't reset, he's looking into it now. Just throwing out some more info to see if it jogs anyone's brain towards a solution.

Those fans are NOT chassis dash functions. They are either after market or added by Fleetwood and can be wired to any power choice they chose. The dash functions that the OP listed are chassis (Ford or GM) functions.

Likewise, the GFCIs have nothing to do with the dash. The GFCIs won't reset unless they are receiving 120vac power.
