Just purchase a 1998 Four Winds 5000 22rk with 36700 miles on it, in excellent condition. I have had a MH before and trailers, and have had no problem finding the DC fuses and AC breakers. I have looked everywhere but under the hood, and can not find the shore power breakers! It is a Ford E350 V10 6.8L.

There was, of course, was no manual with the unit only individual pamphlets on the appliances.
Thank you for any help.
Jim

On the side of the bed. The bed cover usually blocks it from view when you are standing up.

Also here's a BIG safety tip for you:
Do NOT let anyone put their bags, clothes, purses, shoes, etc on the floor on the side where that converter is. Make that side of the bed OFF LIMITS for anything and make sure you inform all guests and family!

From experience. The fan needs to have air and if it gets "blocked" it WILL catch fire.....as the label on the inside door clearly states. Don't ask me how I know this.

By the way, welcome to the forum. Congrats on your new to you RV.
Happy Camping! [emoticon]

By bed do you mean the jackknife couch, other than the overhead
and table, that's all the bed there is.
Thank You,

Does "22rk" mean 22 foot long?

If its like my Four Winds, the 22 is about the length of the coach part while rk describes the model, perhaps rear kitchen??? The overall length is probably 24-25 feet.

If you have a battery disconnect switch, have someone turn it off and on and listen for the solenoid clicking. The solenoid in mine is located near the converter and the breaker/fuse panel.

I'm with Peg Leg, The 120 volt cord that you plug in to get AC power, the end that is fastened to your RV. The 120 volt breaker is usually right above it in the coach.
