four winds hurricane class A 12 volt system

I am posting this in the hopes that it will Help and save someone else a lot of trouble. No where in the owners manual was this documented. I stumbled on it while doing a search on google. It appears that this is problem is in most if not all hurricane models and years.

My four winds hurricane 31D class A 12 volt system for the coach was only working on Shore power or generator. When not on shore power or generator I had no lights or 12 volts anywhere in the coach. The batteries had been disconnected a few days before to do some work. No wiring diagrams or schematics so I spent 3 hours tracing wires. I had no battery power to the Converter in the distribution panel. I thought that maybe it was the coach disconnect by the door. It appeared to be working. Before crawling under the motor home to look for broken wire I stumbled upon the Item below. That was the problem. when ever the coach batteries are disconnected from the battery cables this little breaker will trip. Mine was located on the right looking into the BCC. It is hard to see untill I noticed a black button about the size of a pin head. I pushed it and heard a click. Everything went to work.
