Question Monaco knight Electrical

I have a 2006 Monaco Knight. The following lights and fans are out and I suspect that this is fuse problem.
The bathroom and living room fans don't work.
The lights in the living room and bedroom ceilings are out and the reading lights over the bed are out.
Neither I nor our local RV tech cant figure out which fuses are for these fixtures. Can anyone help please?

Sorry you're here with problems.
Hopefully a Monaco owner will be along shortly with some helpful info.

I also have an '06 Knight. Don't have the same electrical problems (yet), but I'm interested in the replies.

Might have better response if you posted this in the Monaco Owners forum here.

The salesman switch might be thrown or has failed I would start there. It is the disconnect switch as you enter the coach.

Make sure the batteries are all charged up, and the salesman's switch is closed. If the batteries are low, then the house and chassis relays won't close.

Then note that many Class A's have 3 sets of automotive fuses. One set in the Battery control center, one set near or under the dash for the chassis, and one set for the house near or part of the CB panel.

Assuming that you still have 12vdc power elsewhere and there's 12v present at the battery bank, as you didn't say, then the next step is to check every last one of the fuses on the house panel, not matter what it says and regardless of blown indicator led's being on or whatever.
Hot water tank work on gas, for instance?
Gas furnace fan?
RV type fridge on gas?
If all 12vdc is out, start with the batter switch near the doorway somewhere.
This operates a relay contactor or solenoid if your will and it can go from there.
Battery cable loose, maybe?
Do you have a factory inverter and maybe something is blown or a breaker of sorts tripped there and not sure if I'm making sense with this idea or not and without seeing how you might be wired.

And use a meter or test light to check them -- a visual inspection is not good enough. I've seen too many fuses that look good visually, but are still bad.
