Freedom Elite 29FE Exterior Kitchen Macerator not working.

The macerator in the exterior kitchen of my Freedom Elite 29FE quit working. The electrical schematic shows there is a 20 amp circuit breaker located in the bedroom under the bed. I've looked all over and cannot locate it. I contacted Thor Tech support who tried their best to help me but still could not locate it. Can anyone with a 29FE provide any assistance?

I have crawled through my 29fe and know of no separate circuit breaker. There should be a 12v fuse in the panel at the foot of the bed. Check there.

Yep, the macerater in the outside kitchen is 12 volt, so look for a fuse in the power center. Of course you could just pop the switch out and check for 12 volts at the switch.

Thanks for the responses. I've looked everywhere for this so called 20 amp breaker. I think my next step is to take Beau338's suggestion and pop the switch to see if I have power. I hate to take the coach in just to find out I've got a tripped breaker or blown fuse.

Once again, there is no 20amp breaker. It's an automotive type fuse in your coach fuse panel at the foot of the bed. You know, your converter. The fuse, if blown, will have an indicator on the panel.

I checked the fuse panel at the foot of the bed. There is no fuse for the macerator located there.

Mine quit working on my 2017 Thor Ace. With the help of a friend with a multimeter, we found the problem was just a bad connection right at the macerator. A bit of re-twisting and electrical tape and it was fixed. Would have taken at least a month at CW!

I checked with a multimeter and I have power going to the switch and to the wires on the macerator itself, which leads me to believe the pump went bad.
