Pass seat no power

Hope someone can help. I have an 06 Bounder 38N on FW chassis. The passenger Flex Steel seat was working and now the seat will not move with any of the electrical switches.
I unpluged and repluged the connectors to the main wiring but no change. I used a test light and none of the plugs have power to them.
I checked the fuses behind the center console and could not find any blown fuses.

Is there another fuse panel somewhere else? Any other ideas?

TIA

Is the drivers seat still working?

If the "salesman switch" is turned off the seats won't work, at least on my Monaco La Palma.

My 2014 Southward has 3 separate fuse boxes.
The passenger's seat fuse is in a fuse box located above the fixed propane tank beside the inverter.

Yes the drivers seat still works.

I have not heard of the "salesman switch" but i am assuming that is the main battery disconnect switches

Thanks for the info.

The salesman switch is normal by the exit door and used to turn off power.

Keep us updated on what you find...good luck!

I had a similar experience which turned out to be a break in the power wire to the seat. You might inspect the wiring from the plug, backward, inside the wire loom. Mine had a connection along the way that was made with wire nuts and the power wire had come apart. Probably not "factory" but that was the issue.


The fact your driver seat operates means the general power supply is ON. However, as others have said, there may be a fuse for each seat located somewhere in the coach.

Look real good under seat and make sure wires didn’t get cut from the seat getting moved.

Found 1st part of problem

Great News! I found the first part of the problem.

After purchasing a wire tracer, I traced the wire to the location Jim.B1 clued me in on. This was located in a box by the inverter. There is a 25amp breaker for the seat. The breaker was bad. Replaced the breaker and now it works

Now I think the breaker probable failed because it was tripped too many times. I think I need to check the wires under the seat and see if I have anything shorting out.

Thanks for all the help everyone.
