Checked...no joy.

The breaker panels on are the opposite side of the cabinets above the bed.

Turn your inverter on and remove shoreline power. Check those tv outlets again.

Many tvs up front are controlled by an ignition relay 12 volts that is and keep you from turning on the televisions while the engine is running.

Could be more than one problem here. It is all too often problems get introduced while troubleshooting. Been there, did that, got the tee shirt.

Power out of the ems panel must be confirmend with a voltmeter of course. As good as the signal tracers can be they can fool you. The signal is strong enough to pass over open contacts in a realy if the generator is close to the relay.

I would want voltage readings on the terminals on that little circuit board inside the AC breaker panel. Just for good measure. If those voltage are coming out you have a built in signal generator, although this own will hurt you if not careful.

Thatís what the signal tracer is supposed to help you find, by following the cable run.

I've looked in every nook and cranny in this motorhome. I haven't yet removed light fixtures or cabinets. I'm going to remove the shower skylight trim and have a look there, when I have a chance.

It has helped greatly for me to find wiring paths. Going up stream from the two kitchen slide/plumbing chase j-boxes, I can follow a strong signal up along the shower stall to the outside wall. The signal stops where the ceiling meets the wall in the shower room heading towards the 120v panel in the bedroom. Before removing a med cabinet or ceiling tile, I'm going to remove the shower skylight trim from the bottom. I might be able to see something there.

I think your wasting your time looking in your ceiling.

My 120V panel is in my bathroom, rather than the rear of the coach, like I believe yours is.
I do have a junction box under the floor under the bed.

My 120v panel is actually in the bedroom about 4 feet from where the signal stops with my tracer.
It's my understanding that j-boxes are suppose to accessible. If I have to remove a cabinet and ceiling panel to locate one then I'd say that's not too accessible. Removing the shower skylight trim to at least look along the wiring path shouldn't be too difficult.
I have a j-box under the bed as well but it has power and appears to feed the bedroom and bath.

If it's built like mine, there will be an aluminum frame around the shower skylight. You won't see anything.

If that's the case that would be disappointing.

Thanks for the pic Boss, I've been under the floor cabinets. The wall cabinets look to be very difficult to remove, if I was going to look behind one or open a section of the ceiling covering.
