Question No power to multiple devices

We have lost power to the dash A/C, side mirrors, defroster fan and lever control panel. We have checked every fuse we can find. Need to trace the wiring... does anyone have a wiring diagram for 2008 Gulfstream Bounty Hunter?

What do all these have in common, if anything?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

From your title I was ready to jump to the tripped GFI suggestion but these sound like 12v items so hopefully one of our experts will be along soon to chime in.

Good luck...

I never worked on a bounty hunter, but when I worked Gulfstreams ( tourmaster friendship etc.) they had a small fuse panel under the hood that controlled these functions.

Power issues continue

We have checked fuses under the dash, driver side, under the hood and in the side compartment. Are there any others?

Could we have a problem with the ignition switch signalling these components?

Thanks so much!

Power problem

Hi there,

Did you ever resolve this issue? I just bought a used Bounty Hunter, and have the same problem, although it is intermittent for me.

The dash A/C, power mirrors, defrost fan, fog lights, and leveling jacks intermittently don't have any power - and then suddenly they'll all begin working with full power.

Any ideas?

sounds like a possible bad or corroded 12v connection, probally at the fuse panel as all items are affected, or a bad ground. But not being familiar with the unit, I cant tell you where to start. I'm sure someone here will come up with a solution or more detailed answer.

Do you have a Intelitec Battery Control Center? 14x14 black box. Most MH have something similar to this.

I believe I found the problem. The battery isolator switch wasn't transferring power properly. It looks like a solenoid, and a power cable from a fuse block hooks to it, and when energized, it allows power supply to transfer from a 12v supply line transfer through the battery switch to the output, which powers all the systems I mentioned before - dash a/c, foglights, defrost fan, power mirrors, power step switch - and a few others.

I've replaced the battery switch with one from Camping World for about $33, and so far it's working great.

Thanks for the responses!
