Trying to help a friend get her 06D running. Need to use block heater. Found switch under bed but it doesn't lite in either position and doesn't show any current drain in either position on front display panel. I was looking for where the heater is actually plugged in but can't locate it. Do they still use a 120 v plug in in a receptacle and if so wher is it located ?Does the switch in bedroom light on 06 39V?

Don't know about Fleetwood, but my Winnie Journey's engine block heater plugs in in the service compartment for the electrical. It plugs in to an electrical outlet in the compartment where the shore line cord is located.

Yes, I had 99 D that worked same way. However, I can't find any sign of such a setup on this motorhome and I've looked during both night and day to get different view. frustrating!

On our 06 Excursion, the receptacle is in the engine compartment on the drivers side. Also check to make sure the ground fault receptacles have not tripped. The receptacle as you entered the bedroom also controlled the receptacle for the block heater.

Yes, i checked this morning after thinking about it last night and the GFI was tripped. When I reset I got lighted heater switch and current draw of about 10 amp so even if I still can't find the dam cord its working.

Thanks

On our '07 Revolution, the switch, which lights if on, powers a wall plug in the powercord bay, and the block heater plug cord plugs into that wall plug. On the Discovery, if it is like our previous '04 39L, the switch is on the bed facing forward and the wall plug is in the engine bay, toward the front just under the bedroom hatch. Not sure something is 'wrong' just because you don't know where it is, eh.

My old D had the receptacle conveniently in the compartment and one could use it for other purposes if so desired. I can't find this one but if as you said one has to remove the engine cover in bedroom so much for convenience.
