Battery power not working :(

The battery is charged and is connected up, yet no power to interior lights or panels. The DC converter works what could be the cause to this problem?

Thanks, doesn't appear to be a blown fuse. Where would be the battery switch located?

I had a similar problem on half my DC circuit. Visually checked all the fuses which "looked ok" . Rechecked and rechecked, spent a lot of time before TESTING the fuses. Found a bad one even though it looked ok.

I don't think you have one. There isn't one in my 75.
The battery connects to the 12 volt distribution panel and there should be a fuse for the positive as well as the negative lines. That is where I would start. Your battery cable should have a quick disconnect located in the battery area, that is another place to check.

On my 69 I lost power to a section of the AS. I found a bad circuit breaker behind the control panel . There was at least 4 or fi e of them behind the clock. They were the automotive type.
