Manually tripping breakers

Is there some way to manually trip the house DC breakers without actually overloading them in my '97 Adventurer to determine which lights and other devices are on what breaker? All I've seen so far is that they are push-button reset.

1997 wiring diagrams are here. The diagram you want to review is probably called "Body, Wiring Diagram."

Note: This is as it came from the factory. Prior owners could have made changes.

You should add a signature to your profile. Most people include the make and model of their coach in the signature; some add other information useful for others to know. The signature is added to each post, so you don't have to type that information. You set up a signature by clicking on the "User CP" option (upper left on orange banner on each page) and select "Edit Signature."

Probably not, but if you gave more info on why you'd like to do this, we may have some suggestions. One thing that comes to mind, if you're interested in one breaker in particular, is to change it out for a switchable breaker. There may be other sources but West Marine and other boating supply houses carries them. Switching out all of them could get expensive.

Another is to install a simple in-line on/off switch at a convenient point in the circuit in question.

Since it seems that you want to do this just once for the record, take the panel off its mounting, and disconnect one wire on each breaker one at a time, and see what stops working.

Sorry, I guess I didn't read your post very well. Now that I understand your purpose, getting the wiring diagram is your best bet. Not only is disconnecting the breakers one-by-on time consuming, it's easy to miss something.

Do you have DC circuit breakers or DC fuses? If they are circuit breakers, there should be a button on the top of them. If you press that button, it will breaker the circuit temporarily. You can also pull the fuses or breaker out of the panel to isolate specific circuits,
