Hello I have a 1994 Winnebago adventurer 34' motorhome. I hqve some kind of problem with coach batteries. Batteries are fully charged. But nothing works inside of coach. Panel to check batteries, water level, lpg, etc.. nothing lights up. I checked breakers and fuses at converter but everything appears ok. I checked fuses at dash they look ok. Please help. Also I push start button on generator and nothing happens.

There should be a switch at the entry door (next to the switch for the lights in the basement) that will activate the system.

I had a similar problem with my Monaco. There may be a circuit breaker on the wall of the battery box shortly after the batteries (follow the cables starting at the batteries). If that breaker tripped then all would go dead . Mine kept tripping when using heavy load (slides or jacks usually). It turned out that the battery wire connections were corroded and some loose. I. Removed every heavy cable and cleaned every connection. Problem went away......corrosion was causing a drop in voltage that failed under load. Hope this helps. If you find a tripped breaker, clean its connections also.

Also check your grounds at the frame. Not just the battery. Took me a couple of months to figure out my clean battery cables were dirty at the frame connection. Fixed all kinds of wierd electrical problems I was having. A bad connection usually generates heat -= so if you have a hot connection - that is were I would start looking.

I followed battery cables and there is no breaker, I looked for switc by door and none. I checked for loose grounds, everythings tight. Does anyone know if there is a fuse for aux battery switch that is located on dash. I don't hear a click when turning batteries on. The only fuse box I found is in hinged part if dash

Give us some info on your coach, make model and year. You should have a battery disconnect switch some where around the entrance door.

Since we haven't a clue what brand, model or year of coach you have, its impossible to help you. Generally speaking, the house battery disconnect switch is near the entry steps. The actually solenoid that takes care of the actual disconnect is generally in close proximity to the 12v fuse panel, the converter and the house battery(s).

You may want to post your question in the Winnebago owner forum.
