Jacks panel, slide, fridge all dead

I was leveling my 1999 Bounder and the Powergear display started flashing a red light on the right hand side. Then it died completely. My dash lights went out, my fridge appears to be on, but isn't cooling and my slide won't work. Is there one fuse that connects all these things or is it something more complicated? I am a widow and not all that familiar with the technical stuff..and I have only driven it once (to the shop). If I can save another trip that would be great! Thanks

It sounds like you blew a fuse or circuit breaker. On our MH, there is a major breaker right near the coach batteries that is not obvious, but does trip. There is another one in the engine compartment that is a simple reset button. And of course there is the coach main power right inside the door. Not sure what the '99 Bounder has, but more than likely it will be something similar. Look through the Bounder section here at the forum and see if anyone has posted the electrical schematics or had a similar experience.

Good luck! I'm sure it will be something simple.

I don't think you blew a fuse. I think you probably just have a loose or corroded battery connection at your chassis battery. All those items that failed are fed directly from your chassis (engine) battery without a common fuse.

Technically, your refer is not fed by the chassis battery, but it does control the LP gas feed solenoid.

Have someone check your battery connections for you.

1 did you have the engine running when leveling ? you should.
2 If your at a camp ground plug in your power cord. That should power up your converter or converter/inverter. that should switch your fridge to AC mode.
3. If no camp ground plug start you generator instead.
4. On your dash there should be a aux start button. push and holding the button is like a jump start . see if any of the lights return.

Thanks so much for all the help! I was not running the engine when leveling, good to know. The good news is that the problem "fixed itself". Which must mean loose wire? Not sure, but it is really nice to have a place to come for help. I plan on learning everything about it (and practice driving) as it's almost paid for. Thanks again. Diana

Do you have an owners manual for your MH? If not you can download a copy from the Fleetwood web site. There may be separate owners manuals for your slides and levelers. Those are most likely available on the web as well. It's very important to become familiar with all the systems on your HM. I'm of the male persuasion and even I read the manuals.

It would help if you filled out your signature so that we would know exactly what unit you have.

If the problem "fixed itself" you most likely have a bad connection somewhere. I would try to find out what it is and have it fixed. Next time you may have your slides out and not be able to get them in.
