No power, Copilot chair

2020 Ventana. Lost power to Co-Pilot chair. All connections check good. I can't find any fuses. Panel legend shows B1 breaker for pilot and breaker B2 for Co-Pilot chair. B1 looks like a self reset breaker with no way to manually reset. Breaker B2 doesn't exist. Foot rest is fully extended. I need to retract foot rest to be able to turn seat to face forward
before we travel tomorrow. Any ideas?

its most likely in your wiring connection under the chair- sometimes they pull loose when rotating the seat, Get under there- find it- disconnect & reconnect it . There should be a fuse or breaker in your coach electrical panels - 1st bay from the front on the driver's side.

Happy Trails

Also check each wire on both sides of the connector to ensure they are still seated tightly into the connector. Repeated rotating of the seat- especially if its not done 180 one direction & back 180 the other direction will stretch the wires causing them to come loose from the connector.

Thanks Capt. Bill, Problem solved. As you stated, fuses for the pilot and co-pilot chair are in the panel in the 1st bay on the driver's side. Freightliner fuse panels, 20A fuse blown. Apparently the footrest mechanism was in a bind and stalled the motor. Freightliner panel index shows 30A fuse for seat power, but both seats have 20A fuse. Assuming that Newmar has a reason for these to be 20A, I replaced with a 20A fuse. All seat functions working OK now.

Ken normally what will happen is a wire gets pinched in the chair frame. That will blow a 20 amp fuse. Typically a stalled motor would not blow a 20 amp fuse. May never show up againÖ.. but then again.

I had a similar thing happen. The self resetting fuse was blown. Replaced with a 30 amp fuse and all worked well. Got 2 30 amp self resetting fuses one to replace the regular 30 amp I had used and the other a spare. Newmar had a recall and they removed the 30 amp self resetting fuses with regular 30 amp fuses. I think this was a safety issues. I remember reading on this forum a captain's seat catching fire.

Not sure what year your coach is but there is a Newmar recall on the wiring under the driver and passenger seats. See attached.

Thanks @GW4607, @mahdi, @VentanaOdyssey. I'll check the wiring more closely, and follow up on the Newmar recall. The wiring under the seat looks like a jumble, and could easily be the problem of a pinched/shorted wire.
