It's the battery isolation switch usually near the entrance to a motor home. When the salesman is showing the RV he can flip the switch and power up the house. Also sometimes refers to a switch at the entrance that turns on overhead lights, but I think it's more a term for the BIS.

Probably would have been better if you'd started a new thread instead of adding a different issue on this one.

An RV can get 120 v A/C power from two sources, but alternating current can't be mixed. You might have an automatic transfer switch (ATS) that senses power source and switches from one to the other. If that switch fails to operate, power won't flow. An ATS switch is usually wired to default to generator power.

The second method used to select power from the two sources is an outlet and plug configuration. Look in the generator or shore cord compartment for a large outlet that your shore cord could plug into. In an RV without an ATS, to switch sources you change by physically plugging in cord.

I can't find the fuse? Can someone give me direction on where the fuse is? I have checked all the breakers I know of so I am assuming it is a fuse.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I am not finding my house fuses. Any Fleetwood owners that know where this box is hiding? Thanks for the help so far.

You say "the battery lights in the front of the coach" AND "I have 4 lights in the front part of the cab that run off battery"

That's confusing and I'm wondering what you mean.

I thought thatALL of the 12V lights in, and on, ALL RVs "run off the batteries", (some off the house batteries and some off the chassis batteries).Mel

I should have said the 12 v that turn on from the switch by stairwell. To make it clearer.
