No power, won't even come on. Checked the outlet and it works fine. Have checked the breakers, all fine. What can I check next. I have read all the papers but nothing really addresses my issues. I did holes the start button to try and rest but of course nothin, it was just a try. Oh, one more problem. We have two additional fluorescent trim line lights in the galley area that didnít work. THey were not listed on the wiring pictures. Called Winnebago to see which switch would activate them. He told us and itís the lounge switch but they still donít work. Have changed the bulbs too. Canít find the ground wire.
Hence the title having a bad day. I love my RV but this is just too much stress.
What is your history with this RV? Just taking out of storage? New to you and first time you used it?
The vacuum may have a switch on the tube you insert the vacuum hose in to turn on the vacuum. May need to check that.
Is there an on/off switch on the light fixture? Do you have a blown 12V fuse blown for the lights? Find the 12V fuse panel and check. Do you have a multi meter to measure the voltage at the light fixture? 2 or 4 screws hold the light to the ceiling. Take it down to measure the voltage. The yellow wire should be +12V and the other wire is the ground. Not sure what you mean by "can't find the ground wire".
No really good help with the washer/dryer. If the is power to it there should be a light that comes on on the front when you push buttons.
Sounds like you were very frustrated when you were dealing with the problems. Try starting over from scratch and try to trouble shoot when you are more relaxed.
