Circuit Breakers

I have a 2004 Journey, I have found the circuit breaker panel above the generator, What I am trying to find out is how do I replace one of these breakers?

What make, model generator do you have? If you Google for a manual for that make, you'll probably find drawings and info you need.

"above" the generator?

If the breaker is actually mounted on the genset, you need the genset info. If somewhere else, Winnebago put it there. In that case it's probably a standard residential type breaker, in a small separate panel.

I think your Journey has an Onan 7500 diesel genset. It has a special Onan-brand 62 amp breaker mounted on the front panel of the Onan, with one "handle" that moves the two parallel breakers inside.

In other words, it sounds like it might be in someone's best interest to carry a spare - what a pain!!!

If it's a common residential breaker, take the information off the face or disconnect the unit from any power, remove one and go to your local Big Box store (or an electrical supply house) and try to match it. There are really only a couple different designs for the bus bar to breaker interface, so brand names wont matter - and I have to say that RV manufacturers don't always use commonly known brand name parts - anywhere.

I would say "yes" to a spare Onan breaker except that the failure rate on the QD7500 is so low I don't think it is worth the cost.

I had a flush valve fail on a Sealand toilet back around 2004 and was without a toilet for 5 days. Have carried a spare ever since and not needed that either.

Do you think you might need another? My spare wont work on the current unit's Dometic (though that pot may get replaced with a SeaLand if I have any more problems and need a 3rd - so maybe I'll keep it JIC).

LOL! I better check the one I have too, since we replaced the Sealand with a newer one a few years back. It seems identical, but they might have changed the valve part number.
