Question Location breaker panel on 2008 Scamp 13' ?

We have a 2008 13' Scamp. It has no AC but does have both the electric and the gas heaters. I've looked at the wiring diagram. I've searched under seats, inside cabinets, everywhere I can see but haven't found the breaker panel/converter. Tell me that it's not behind the fridge please.
Perhaps I don't know what I'm looking at. What size is it? (However, I see nothing even resembling a panel ... something with wires running to/from and looks even remotely like a breaker panel.) I've asked Scamp but have no response to that specific question.
Thank you.

Is there a panel under the frig? In our 03' it was under the dinette seat. In our 2010 19' it is under the fridge.

I do hope it's not under or behind the fridge. It appears that if it is I'd have to pull out the fridge. Seems like a dopey place to put it. Why not make is accessible and located in a place with better air flow for cooling? (Yeah, I know, you didn't design it.) ;-) Thank you.

Follow your external power cable into the trailer it will take you to your converter/panel. My 2005 S-13 converter was under the drivers side dinette bench. The older Scamps W/O converters had a two breaker A/C panel over the drivers side wheel well under the sink on the S-13.

There should be a panel below the fridge door. That is the breaker panel and the converter. If you take the look under the dinette seat towards the fridge you will see the converter but it it much easier to look at when you unscrew the front plate.

Unhappy Nope

I've repeatedly looked under the front bench, the rear dinette benches, including standing on my head inside. I've done the same inside the cabinets below the sink. I've traced the wiring from the front and from the side (shore power) and find no visible breaker panel or converter. There's no panel below the fridge. (The carpet comes up the kick panel there. I suppose I could pull it loose and look but I don't feel anything there. Anyone have thoughts on that. If your panel access is there was it covered by carpet?
Mostly I'm dreading pulling the fridge.
Thanks again everyone.

Mike, it would not be behind the fridge. It has to be readily accessable. On my 16 footer it is under the rear dinette on the road side. I posted a couple of pics as to what to look for. In the second picture you can see the 120volt breakers on the right side and the 12volt fuses on the left side. I hope this helps.

Same as my 2006 13'.

One other thought Mike, I have never heard of an electric heat option in a Scamp.(Or any other brand as far as that goes) Except for a heat tape in the A/C. And you stated you do not have A/C. Is it possible what you are thinking is the electric heater, is actually the converter/breaker panel? Just a thought.

Okay, my 1988 16' trailer is a whole bunch older than yours and bigger... but the fuse panel/breaker box on mine, is in a tiny door under the "closet" next to the refrigerator on the drivers side (I also have a deluxe).

Confession: I'm an idiot.
You know, I am a decent mechanic, ok with wood, good at yard projects, gardens, home repairs, etc. I STINK at electricity.
I had NO idea that the breaker panel/converter was so large! I had in my tiny brain that it was a smallish item, perhaps the size of a four-plug electrical outlet. I've been looking at the thing all along and was not seeing it as what it is.
Correct ...there's no electric heater in the Scamp. And yes the photos and info from Jerry71 finally beat the fact into my brain. Thank you Jerry!
Worst part? I now have to confess my ignorance to my wife. Guys, you know how that hurts.
Thanks to everyone.

Mike that's why we all like this forum. There are a lot of folks here that can help you with no matter what your problem or question is regarding your fiberglass trailer. How you explain things to your wife, well, you are on your own there. But if it is any consolation, you aren't the first one to have to do that either. And you won't be the last.
Good Luck.

Whow, slow down there dont go confessing to the wife just yet! Its electrical, it produces heat Your covered there. You dont have to confess on our part we wont tell unless you show up at a rally and your deeds get exposed. Its easy to get overlooked since it has a hidden pannel for the fuses and no exposed switches.
