NO power to drop down bunk....

All of sudden, my drop down bunk is not working... 2014 thor hurricane 34f.

Never had an issue. I am thinking it may be a fuse or something. I called the repair shop and he said the fuse for this is not with the other fuses, its somewhere else but of course he couldn't really explain where.. does anyone know where so I can check this out myself?

Or does anyone have any other ideas what this could be?

I was running on generator power when I tried to put it down, but service guy said it should still work...

Thanks so much, KIM

you can try to find the fuse, which should be in your fuse panel near your Breaker panel, the fuses for your HOUSE items...

and, another idea is to simply cut OFF the 12v power(via the USE/STORE switch) at the door, and cut it back on in a few seconds...this will sometime help to 'reset' certain items.

Lastly, you can find your Schwintech CONTROLLER for the bunk, usually mounted in a cabinet next to the bed, or even in a false panel in the cabinet. The controller may be blinking some 'codes' you can use to help define the problem.

These systems generally will NOT work when: the key is in the ON position for the vehicle, or if the HOUSE batteries are dead, or too low.

Most obvious question first - does your bunk have a key and lock located somewhere near the monitor panel, and is the key turned on?

On my Vegas Controller's power distribution panel fuse #10 is for the power slide. There is no fuse on the controller for the bunk and I don't know if the power for the bunk feeds off the same wiring for the slide.

Don't know where the bunk controller is for your model but mine for the 2015 Vegas was in the cabinet above the kitchen sink. The left wall of that cabinet is false and the controller is located behind it.

On the 2016 Hurricanes the controller for the bunk is above the drivers head in the left most cabinet. The power usually comes from the 30 amp fuse for the other slides. It is located under the rear bed in the power center. Make sure the ignition key is out of the steering column and the bed inhibit key is in place and switched on; that should give you power to the controller

My bunk bed over cab goes up faster on one side then the other. It then binds up and stops. The only way to get it to go all the way up if I push up on the slow side so they stay together.. ANY IDEAS OUT THERE?

Did you try to sync the motors? That requires the motors to be run to their limits (full up or full down) and the switch held in that position for 3 to 5 seconds. If you cannot get the bed fully up or down you can override the controller (instructions are on LCI website). Lots of trouble shooting available on the LCI site, also.

My Miramar 34.2 2015 had the same problem, so I took off the cover over the rails below the bed to find the motor gear was catching on a piece of vinyl covering in side the rail cover. I cut off the extra piece of vinyl so it could not get caught in the motor and realigned the 2 (L-R) elevation motors, now all is good.
