Thank you. We did open that up and will do so again to take a pic to post here.

The breakers are all showing on....so is it likely that they're all damaged??

No, I don't think they are all damaged. There has to be a simple solution to this. You never said. Are there any outlets in your motorhome working? Another idea is to take an extension cord and plug your refrigerated into it and see if it turns on. That way you could isolate if it's the refrigerator or the outlet. Or, just plug a light or something into the outlet the refrigerator is plugged into to check it. You can access this outlet by removing the outside cover. There has to be an easy explanation for this.

I need to get a pic of the circuit breakers under the fridge. Will do so.

The below are just various pics I've taken just to have on hand.

Don't know what that skinny toggle switch is or what it's for.

Don't know what that thing on the wall is...in two rooms.

Sorry that some images posted twice...don't know why

The thing on the wall in the two rooms is the temperature sensors for your front and rear thermostat settings.

Can't help you with the toggle switches. I don't think I have those on mine.

The battery disconnect switch. If you push those both 'up' you should get all your lights to turn on in the coach. Did you try that?

Lol....don't worry about insulting me. Please ask ANY questions, no matter what.

I followed the priming advice in another thread....hold the toggle (lightning side) down for 10 seconds...then toggle on. Is that right?

Oh, I didn't know there was a plug that can be accessed from the back. I thought all of this stuff was hard wired installed.

No, it's plugged into an outlet like a regular home appliance. I just looked at mine and when I remove the cover the outlet is located to the right and up a little bit. Easy to see if you're looking for it.

Except for maybe the outlet that is under the dash on the passenger side of the cab.

Do you know if your coach uses a DC converter or does it have an inverter/charger installed? The converter would probably be a Progressive Dynamics 91XX or equivalent. The Inverter/Charger might be a Freedom 458.

You stated earlier that your house batteries were each reading 6V. Is that still true?

If the batteries still have power, the problem is that the battery voltage is not getting back to the distribution system/panel. There are two manual reset dc circuit breakers inside the BCC (Battery Control Center box) that may be tripped.

If your coach has the aforementioned I/C (inverter/charger) those tripped breakers could account for your entire set of symptoms.

If your coach has the converter instead of the I/C, you should still have DC power via the converter, when plugged into shore power unless the converter has also failed.

I think this may be the answer. Where would we find I/C reset?

^^^^. I need to correct the above....DH says we have the DC Converter.

Shore power is only helping with the microwave...not doing a dang thing for fridge or house lights or house outlets.

The microwave and washing machine are on the same power source....microwave is working...I assume the washer would as well if I switched and turned that on.


Yes, the two house batteries are volt-testing at 6v each.





(Thank you all so much for helping these EXTREME Newbies! We've never felt so stupid in our lives! )

That's progress.

Can you tell me the make and model of your converter? (PD-91XX, etc)

There is NOT a reset button associated with most converters. You can determine if it is working by measuring the voltage, at the house battery terminals, when the coach is plugged into shore power, and comparing that voltage reading with the reading when the coach is NOT plugged into shore power. If the voltage does not change, then the converter is not working.

Hey, so hopefully this won't insult you, but you said to ask anything.

The two battery disconnect switches above the door that say 'aux' and 'main' ... When you are plugged into shore power did you push the one that says 'aux' up. I believe this connects the converter and allows your lights and everything to turn on ... Including the fridge. I just went and plugged mine into shore power and when I did that everything turned on ... Lights, fridge, outlets. When I click it down everything turns off.

Did you try that switch?
