Just starting out in my ERA 170C

Just starting out in my ERA 170C and learning as I go. Unfortunately it is not a good start as the power convert seems to not be working and I cannot seem to locate it to reset. Tried online sites but no success.

Greetings r0n4rugby,
I see in the 2017 Era Owner's Manual this statement:
CONVERTER
The power converter is located under wardrobe cabinet rearward of galley (Model 70A), behind lower wardrobe cabinet rear of refrigerator (Model 70C), and under wardrobe cabinet rearward of shower (Model 70X)
Do you have a 2017 model?
Welcome to the forum

Thank you for the information, although I investigated the location you mentioned for the 70C and there is only the breaker box and fuse box intuit location, unless it is behind the breaker box. It is a 2015 170C, although I have yet to discover if there are any differences between the 70C and 170C

I found this in the 2015 version of the Era Owner's Manual:
POWER CENTER
(Converter) *Model 70C
The power converter is located behind lower wardrobe cabinet rear of refrigerator.
I also notice that the wheelbase of the 70C is 170"

The 70C we speak of is kind of shorthand for the BM170C, not two different RV!
I like the interactive parts drawings here for finding what I bought:
https://catalog3d.winnebagoind.com/menu/Parts.htm
It takes some play for the learning curve to kick in but it can do all kinds of good stuff for newer owners as we can look through walls as well as get parts number or names for what we find!
Or if we know the name we can click on it in the list at right to make it flash yellow on the drawing as a way to spot smaller items. Things like coax splitters can be hard to spot if we have no idea where it is hidden!

Click this snip or go direct?

Go to RV , then electrical and 12 volt and find interior view at top left of drawing set?

Looks like almost against the drivers side wall, just in front of the wheel well and near the floor! From inside it shows possibly lined up just to the front of the chassis fuses?

Thanks for all the assistance regarding where the power diverter is in my ERA 170C. I still did not find it but found the problem was a loose wire on the back of the shore power plug in. Alls well

One way to find a converter that is hiding is to listen for it on a hot day when lots of power is used. At best, they will often have a hum but if they are doing a lot of work, a cooling fan makes it even easier to hear and find!
If there's somebody under the bed that hums all night, their name is "Converter"!
