My 12V circuit doesn't seem to work anymore. I dont see 12V at the convertor input, between black and white wires. Voltage is ok at connector near battery. Somewhere between the convertor and battery I have an open circuit. It looks like the wires leave the battery, and go into the rectangular tubing of the frame. I cant tell where the wires leave the frame and go up into the trailer. Anyone know how the wires are run in these things? Have pulled side panels up to try and see. Looks like they run from convertor up along tops of side panels to side panel covering heater unit. Hard to tell where they go after that, as I can't get into that heater unit panel very easily.

Anyhow, just wondering if anyone knows about the routing of the wires in these.
thanks
Tim

Howdy and Welcome Tim.
We had a 99 Bayside and the wires went into the frame at the battery and came out just past the trunk right behind our converter that was under the heater up front so it was easy to find, Sorry I can't help more.

I helped a friend resolve a similar problem earlier this past spring. He had power coming out of the battery at the connector but nothing coming out of the inverter. After an hour or so of tracing wires and pulling panels he was ready to drag the unit to the dealer but first asked me for an opinion. Took me about 6 seconds to correct the problem. A popped fuse on the panel. I don't mean to insult yours or anyones intelligence but this is something very easily overlooked. I'm in the automotive business and this is generally the first thing we look at when diagnosing an electrical problem.
