2005 Journey suddenly lost house dc power

Dry camping and was running generator to run the microwave and top off the batteries and everything shut down. Checked all the breakers nothing popped. House voltage on the all-in-one center shows 0 volts. Turn the inverter on and the displays shows 12.4 volts and if I turn the inverter on the ac outlets work. Cant start the generator even when using battery boast. Was getting dark so i ran a jumper wire from the chassis batteries to the refrigerator for tonight.

Didnt pull out the house batteries to check the 250 amp house battery fuse but if the inverter turns on it has to be ok.

Anyone have an idea where to start. Thanks

Visit the Winnebago site and download wiring info for your coach , look for large 12 volt circuit breakers that may have tripped and need to be reset.

Issue resolved. It was a failed house battery isolation solenoid. I jumped it until i can get a replacement when i get home.

two places to look, in the battery compartment , up on the front corner is a large fuse for the 12 volt system. check that first. second, in the front of the rig are ali the breakers and fuses for the chassis, take off the large cover and in the lower left side is a large solenoid, smack it with a hammer to see if it is stuck. that solenoid control the 12 volt .
