12 volt panel location

I have a 93' 25' Excella that I cannot find the 12 volt panel for. Looked high and low and now feeling pretty stupid. Converter is under the front goucho but cannot find the panel anywhere?

Two weekends ago I know I got my electric jack hot and in a bind and it must have blown a fuse/breaker. Cannot find anything in-line from the jack to where it dissapears into frame channel.

All other 12 volt systems are working and the positive from the harness to the jack is juice.

I guess I can re-wire direct to the batterie with an in-line fuse but hate to start butchering/rigging up like that if I do not have to.

Feeling stupid and know that fuse panel is hiding somewhere?

Any Ideas?

12 volt panel location

Greetings kmoore!

I am not certain when the location changed, but the 12-volt fuse panel was often hidden behind a panel on the Univolt. A small screw was removed and the cover could be opened to reveal the fuse panel. I know that both my '64 Overlander and '78 Minuet have this feature.

Good luck with your investigation!

I doubt this will help, but on our 96 Excella, if you lowered the back of the goucho to make a bed, it exposed a small black door in the wall with the breakers inside.
Good luck.

We previously owned a '93, 25' Excella. The 12 volt panel was located behind the sleeper sofa on the front wall of the trailer.

Thanks to all who replied................made me think. I have found it behind the snap on wall covering behind the gaucho. No you see now you don't.

Problem is still no fuses or breakers. I guess i will have to hot wire to the battery for the time being. Still learning the newer airstreams!

that's the 12v breaker panel. look for a white button on the sides that is popped out. a test light or meter will tell you if one blew. you might want to first test for power at the jack. you might have power and have a jack problem. it has switches that limit the travel.

some trailers have a circuit breaker in line near the jack.
