12 volt system not getting power

I have a 2013 Flying Cloud 27FB and after unplugging from shore power my 12 volt system doesn't get power.
Batteries are good.
Where is a fuse or breaker for the 12 volt system? I'm assuming under the bed.
Any help would be appreciated.

Were you using the store side of the battery switch?

I tried both settings and the lights would just flash on but go off.

Maybe the Use/Store switch is itself bad? Ours is like a small relay, not a hard physical on/off switch, so it could fail IMO.

At least you know you have power to the switch it appears. Further advice is beyond my knowledge, sorry.

Good luck!

Wondering if you got this sorted out?

Thanks,

I had the store switch fail, I could turn it off all day long but wouldn't turn on.
Check the battery monitor to see what voltage you have available. Check the connections on the batteries, tight is good.
fuses are under the pantry at the breaker box

I am going to replace the relay switch. I'm waiting for it to come in.
My best guess is this is the problem. I had power after switching it on and off several times but after I switched it to Store it would not come back on.
I'll let you know what happens.

There are 5? amp fuses on both sides of the solenoid that could prevent proper operation. I checked these too before I settled on my bad switch as the issue.

I checked the fuses and they are good. Replaced switch and it still only works intermittently.
What's next the solenoid?

Look at all terminal leads for tightness. Intermittent operation is a bad connection. I could be internal on the solenoid, just bad one.
