Which 120v breaker operates the recliners?
The 2017 to 2021 Villa Recliner Couch does differ from the 2015-16 version. The 2015-16 has a wider center section that features a pull out drawer. The 2017-2021 version features a narrower center section that has no drawer, but hides the converter. There are also differences on the armrests and switches that operate the recliners.
The outlet the powers the recliners in on the 120V circuit breaker that feeds the "transfer switch" inside the inverter that allows them to be operated from the inverter when not connected to shore power. Off hand, I do not know which circuit breaker that is in my 2016 (I have labeled them inside the breaker box as they were unlabeled from the factory) but don't have a photo and the Classic is not stored at home. Your a 2019 could be different.
A tripper breaker should be in a slightly different position or try your TV or radio or the outlet under the dinette when plugged in to short power. If they work, the breaker is not tripped and the recliners should work.
Unless at some point (2019+?) the recliners were changed to 12V
. We have friends with a 2017 or 2018 Classic (forget which) and I think theirs are still 120V.
P.S. OK, I remember now. I could manual pull the recliner out AFTER I removed the motor because the attachment point for the operating motor cracked off the steel framework under the couch. That's right, the little steel tabs on the steel bar that the motor attaches to snapped off. It has since been fixed. That may have been the only time it could be operated by hand.
