Elec troubles

I was changing the light bulbs in the control center when the power wire from the stove fan touched the the panel. Now I don't have any interior lights and no power at the control panel when on shore power and the engine won't turn over. If I turn to accessories I have interior lights. I also have 110 when on shore power.

I can't seem to find a blown fuse and the inverter is still humming and I have 12 volt power at the fuse block after the inverter.

How can a tiny spark kill everything that was working fine before.

It is strange that the engine is effected by a failure of the coach 12 volt system. The control panel and interior lights of the coach should be off the coach battery. There is a blown fuse between the coach battery and the coach 12 volt system.

The fact that you have truck interior lights with the ignition switch in assc. but do not have a starter response. I would look at the starter and check for voltage at signal side of the selenoid while someone attempts to start the rig. If you do not have voltage there you will have to trouble shoot the switch. If you have voltage but the selenoid does not pull in disconnect the ground side of the battery and loosen and tighten the large battery terminal on the starter. That terminal tends to loosen over time and becomes an open. Do not over tighten as that stud is only seated in the plastic of the selenoid body.

Thanks I will try that in the morning, It is strange that that little spark could kill the power to the control panel, I still have power to the amp meter there but nothing else

The amp meter is wire on the input side of the fuses. Another indication the problem is a fuse.

Check for a burnt fusible link by the silonoid. I also had one on a Winebago right on top of the intake below the carb.

Well the Magnetek 950-2-4 50 amp checks out okay and I can't find any burnt fuses on the panel beside the inverter. But when I plug in to shore power. I don't have any power to any thing other than the 110 outlets unless I turn the key to accessories then I have power to everything.

The engine no start was a disconnected neutral switch

Should I have to have the key turned to acc when I am plugged in to shore
power ?

Is there something that I am missing, Is there a fusible link and dose anybody know where it is
