Where the heck is our electrical panel???

We are fairly new to this, so bare with me....My boyfriend turned off the master switch the other day, and since then the fridge doesn't work...THe light comes on but no temp. After consulting the manual as to where the electrical panel should be, we searched high and low, and cannot find it anywhere. It is getting humorous at this point....We have a 1989 34' Limited with solar panels, so we figure maybe it was relocated? Any suggestions, we are getting desperate to get the fridge going as we are going camping next week! Many thanks!!!!!!!!!

On my '92 Limited the breaker box is in the (I think, the streetside) cabinet above the bed, completely to the rear of the trailer. I have an extra thirty amp box for my rear A/C in one cabinet and off hand I don't remember which is which.

Tin Lizzy,
Do you have a fabric bolster which wraps around the front of the trailer behind the sofa? If so, undo the snaps and it might be dead center under the front window. I'm thinking that the control panel is fed by 12 v. and you may have a fuse or circuit breaker blown. Also check that master switch to see that it is moved back and forth several times. Do not do this when hooked up to 110 v. because my manual says it can blow fuses.

It does sound like a fuse problem, as the fridge needs 12 VDC to operate on either 120VAC or LP gas (control board voltage). If you want to be sure that you have 12VDC power to the fridge, remove the outside cover and you will see a black and white wire (usual colors) going to a white plastic terminal block. Check here with a DC volt meter, white is ground and black is +. If you ARE getting 12+VDC there, then you have other problems.
