No power from battery in Bigfoot 25b25fb

Lost 12 volt power from the battery looked for but canít find a breaker or fuse anywhere
Tested a live wire from battery to incoming wire to the selanoid and everything works fine.
Any knows the location of the fuse or circuit breaker in a 2009 Bigfoot 25b25fb?
Thanks
Randy

there's a master breaker usually right next to the battery compartment, follow the + wire from the battery (I think its red on bigfoots?).

then on the other side of the master breaker, the wire either goes to the power converter input, or it goes to a battery disconnect switch and then to the power converter.

the power converter, if its anything like the couple I've seen, the top half of the door opens when you turn the plastic latch 90 degrees, then give the top of the door a little tug.

behind this door, should be both the AC circuit breakers, and the DC fuses. there's often a couple master fuses, maybe like 30A, which aren't part of the output circuits.


this is the original fuse panel on my Casita, the two green 30A fuses above are the masters, while the various blue and red ones are for the individual circuits, attached to the screws below...

ah, and here's the ENTIRE power panel on my Escape 21', which is a much nicer panel than the Casita came wth... this shows the power converter on the bottom, neutral and ground bar on the upper left, the A/C circuit breakers in the upper middle, and the fuse panel to the upper right....

power

first of all check to make sure you have power from your battery your source

check all fuses you may have blown one

is there a main breaker check it

sounds like your convertor may have blown

you may have to get a skilled person involved

good luck

bob

My Bigfoot has a battery disconnect switch near the door. It is in a place that could be very easy to accidently switch it off with a knee.

Power

Your help is appreciated
This all started when someone pulled the emergency brake line while my Bigfoot was parked draining the battery which I replaced.
After that I had no power to the battery disconnect solenoid.
I ran a wire to test the voltage from the battery to the disconnect solenoid and it worked... power back .
I also check continuity on the red 6 ga wire between the battery and the solenoid......no luck, so Iím thinking breaker or fuse.
I just canít find it
Any help finding would be great
Thanks
