Anyone with a 1994 Fleetwood Flair know where the breakers are?

I'm really trying to learn the this Motor home. Right now, I have either a bad shore cord or a tripped breaker. I found a breaker on the inverter, but am I missing another one? Click image for larger version

They are right there in your image: Green, Red, Red, Blue, Blue are the breakers.

I wasn't sure if there were another set of breakers. Then I need to replace my shore power cable.

Does everything work on generator ? It could be the transfer switch.

Generator doesn't work.

Still could be the transfer switch (if it has one). From reading they seem to go bad fairly often. Some Motor Homes, especially older ones, have an outlet in the bay where the power cord is and this outlet is the generator output, which you plug the shore cord into to get generator power to the breakers. Also there is a breaker on the generator usually.

In any case, not much to go wrong with a shore cord unless you can see damage to it. If the plug is bad or burned, cut the cord and put a new plug on it, readily available at Home Depot, Lowes, online, etc.

Don't go willy nilly changing parts, take a volt meter and go from one point to another checking voltage till you find where it stops at.

Thanks. That makes sense to me.

You might try asking Fleetwood for the 120v circuit diagrams. Make sure to send your VIN and serial number. This would help you trace the power if the wiring is more hidden. https://www.fleetwoodrv.com/technical-assistance

On my '95 Flair it's a dead simple system. The shore cord connected straight into the breaker box. No transfer switch and no EMS. I had a similar issue though (one day the power just shut off), the wires from the shore cord had worn out inside the electrical compartment. One of the previous owners had shortened the RV side of the shore cord and those connections weren't great.

Awesome tip! Thanks, a lot!
