Does your control panel look like any of these? My 1999 Southwind has #3 control panel

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! As others have said, you'll need to let us know which leveling system you have.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

after further research my system control panel is #2 from the previous picture and it is an electric/hydraulic and it is a manual system,no auto involved.the obvious problem then is no power to the panel.it is not a keyed system like the slide and it is a ford chassis.so ideas on where the main fuse would be under the hood or do i need to start with the emergency brake switch?does that stop any power to the control panel?thanks larry
