2000 Monaco Diplomat - No power from 3 breakers

Good afternoon,

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I have a 2000 Monaco Diplomat that has no power from 3 breakers. The breaker box is located in the bedroom on the rear wall close to the ceiling. Plus, we have discovered a fried wire in the outlet over the bathroom sink and the plastic box is wrinkled from the heat. There is no power to the bathroom outlet and no power in the kitchen and toward the drivers and passenger seating. In addition, the overhead TV above the drivers seat and the TV in the bedroom [passenger side] do not have power. We do have power to the washer / dryer and hot water heater located in the bathroom on the passenger wall. In the bedroom there is a slide and another slide in the kitchen both located on the driver side wall. Can someone share with me where the wiring is located after it leaves the breaker box? Such as in the ceiling or the flooring.

Again, thank you for your help!

My best and stay safe!

On my 2008 the house 110v wiring starts high, in the roof, but fans out to walls as it runs forward.

Are the 3 breakers not resetting, or do they reset and not forward the power? They are standard house breakers available from Home Depot. Remove the outer panel and you can remove the breakers easily. Then you can check for 110v on the breaker rail. If it has power, then the breakers are bad...unless they are tripping...which means you have a short in those circuits.

Welcome to the forum.

Have you taken the ac panel front off and measured there or are you just assuming there are three circuits not working?

With the panel off if you have voltage coming from the wires attached to those breakers you need to follow those wires probably over to a circuit board that has load shedding relays.

Without making things muddy are you connected to shoreline 30 amp or 50 amp??
You could have one leg of the 50 amp popped at the post outside. Some posts do not latch the breakers together and one can pop by itself.

So we need to know if you are getting power out of the breakers themselves. If not. Start at the post, then the transfer panel.

Also fire up the generator. If you get power on those circuits you know things are ok from the AC panel stand point.

AS for the burned wires. It is all to common to have more than one issue at a time. Totally normal.

Look in a compartment for the inverter/ charger.

It will have a breaker or two on it. It seems like the items not working would be on that circuit. They often trip before the ones in the panel.
