American Eagle lighting/refrigerator not working

I have a 1992 American Eagle that I have had for 4 months. I have lost power to the lights, refrigerator and steps with shore and generator supply. They have worked fine before on both shore and generator power. The receptacles and microwave still work. Thank you for any input.

we have a switch by the front door that the dog has knocked off a couple of times with his tail, you may want to check that.

An obvious question, but have u checked all your breakers?

Has anything changed since they worked last?

Your interior lights and the control panel for the fridge are part of your 12 volt DC system.

Your receptacles and your microwave are powered by your 120 volt AC system.

There are two momentary switches that must be turned on for all of your 12 volt DC system to work.

As yours is a 92, it may have a mid-entry doorway. The switches will be by the entrance in either front or mid-entry configurations.

In any case the momentary switches must be turned on for you to have 12 volt power to the coach and they should both be turned on for your 12 volt systems to work.

Let us know if this solves your problem!

power restored!

Thanks to everyone for their responses. It was a 5 amp fuse in the battery compartment fuse box.
