No House Power

Well 1st day home, time to get to work. As we said in our previous post during our trip home we suddenly lost house power the dash, headlights and everything that seems to run on the motor battery is ok. I checked the fuses (in my 310 they are under the ice-maker), all ok. I have power to the fuse box. 12.6vdc on battery/13.8 on shore power. I cant find the Univolt unit to check there (with the rise in voltage i assume it is on), Also I can hear it running, I think it might be behind the fuse panel but I dont know how to get at it. I must be missing somthing, Any suggestions?

We're no experts, but we have had a few electrical problems with our coach. You mentioned a fuse box. We have one up front, but then a box with circuit breakers above the rear window (inside). Could be a tripped breaker. Also, our univolt is under one of the dinette seats (opposite the ice maker).
I'm sure one of our experts will speak up soon. It usually turns out to be something simple. These little annoyances just make us stronger. We just got back from 4 days at the beach. There's no better way to spend Thanksgiving. Don't give up!

Bad fuse?

We had a problem with a fuse. The one in place when we got the coach was 60amp, but it should have been a 50 amp. We changed it out and that fixed it. Our 310 is an '83 and there are breaker switches behind the tambour that is at the end of the roadside bed. The outlets weren't working once and we reset the breakers...that did it.

Glad you made it home safe and sound.

Thanks, I checked those AC breakers (mine are under the rear window). They seemed ok, but I recycled them anyway. No luck there.

What is your house battery voltage, measured at the batteries?

I had the same problem no house power ... it turned out to be a 70amp sealed circut breaker mounted on the back of the battery drawer. I have some of these if this turns out to be your problem as well. Dan

I had a similar problem several years ago. Check the box where the a/c input line is attached to the Motor Home. Mine is located in the left rear compartment. Check the plastic wire twists for proper size. Mine were two sizes too small and after 6 years they where so loose the wires where no longer connected. Simply replace with the proper size and tape with friction tape.
