Jayco Greyhawk 31 FS inverter box

Hi all,

New to the forums here. We're caravaning with our son who is driving a 2010 Jayco Greyhawk 31 FS. First big trip for them. Having electrical issues starting with a solenoid that controlled the steps. Replaced that, seemed okay, now no power to coach and the ground wire is burned out. We can't find the inverter box and the Jayco tech has not been able to help either. Of course, it's Sunday. Soooo, got the slideouts in and are driving to a Jayhawk service center but wondering if any of you know where the inverter box is or have experienced similar problems.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Margie

Welcome to irv2 margiem.
If you have a power problem I would be looking for a transfer switch and a converter for 12v power and the TS is for transfer of power from your shore cable to Generator if you have one. The converter will have 12v fusing and possible line fuses 20 amp feeding it that protect it from line surges. You may find it in cabinet or under a draw maybe near your shore power cord entrance.

Is the "no power" condition shore power (120v) or 12v (battery)? The systems are independent of each other.

Not sure if you really meant "inverter" or not. The inverter converts 12vdc to 120vdc and can be used when no shore power or generator is available.

I have a 2010 Greyhawk 31 SS. The converter, transfer switch and inverter is located under the bed. The power panel is also under the bed.

Thanks to all. The main electrical bundle was not attached to the frame and was resting on the drive shaft. The drive shaft wore through wires until the ground wire actually melted. The technician's comment was that the electrical work on this particular unit was sloppy. He replaced the damaged wires in the main bundle and reattached all the bundles. Now just can't get the freezer door open. There is nothing in it and we are at our destination so no one has looked at it closely yet. After all, the beer is in the frig

Thanks again,

Margie

And if the beer is cold and easily accessible, a good time will be had by all!
