Question Help with my 'new' motorhome

Started this thread the lost it. I am very new to this kind of thing.

Help. The magik bed in my 1998 Safari Trek 28' does not work. The rig just came back from having some engine work done and basically we seem to have no electricity except for the automatic step.

I have tried to reset the GFI's and checked circuit breakers and fuses.

Any help for me?

Look for a battery disconnect switch near the entry door. If you find one and it's off, turn it on. The person who worked on the coach may have turned it off. Also check the connections at the house batteries. Good luck.

Not sure what a 'magik bed' is, but I bet it's 12 v. Most all your interior lights are also 12 v, your thermostat, water heater, water pump, furnace, refrigerator also. If none of these things work, most certainly your battery isolation switch (disconnect, salesman switch--alternate names) is off. As ChasA said, usually located near entry door.

You may wish to read this reference on the electrical components of most RVs.
