On my 2015 25.2 it is below the bottom drawer below the stove. I think newer 25.2s have them below drawer below the refrigerator.

Angry Fault light on no power to refrig,microwave or outlets

I think I might have much the same problem. Plugged in to shore power but the charging light flashes and fault light is on we have power to one bar on the breaker AC works washer and dyer work but no power to the gfic plug refrig,or microwave. We've unplugged and ran the gen no change. Did a battery shut down that didn't work. Would or could that be a loose wire on the transfer box? My husband isn't much help here did have an electrician checking wires and they make it difficult to get to everything. Had to tear front of the bed off to get to transfer box. Help help any suggestions. We have a 2016 Thor Palazzo

Check for a small white push in breaker on the lower side of the inverter. If you are pulling too much power on items that run with the inverter that can shut down. Items on the slide donít go through the inverter and will work. Happened to us this winter running electric heaters.

You can get to the transfer box by bring the bed about a foot and raising the lid to the under bed storage. That exposes a thin plywood cover held by 4 screws that are easily removed.

No picture attached but Boatbird said to find it on the inverter, not the transfer switch.

Oh, the joys of Thor ownership. I would walk with a backpack before I bought another one.

If you think of them as gigantic jigsaw puzzles: it starts to almost make sense!

I am attaching pictures of the inverter where the circuit breaker is located. My inverter is in the back passenger side compartment. The broker is hard to see because it hasnít flipped, but if you look on the lower righ of the blowup, you will see the CB3 INPUT 30A label. When it is flipped, it sticks out and is white. Just push it in.Click image for larger version

That sounds as if it's been "popped".
Try a little bit more of a push, and try to push it in a little bit further...
It should catch, and stay depressed.
Good luck!

On the bright side : it was easy to find what was wrong, and relatively easy to fix!

Ok the inverter/charger has been rigged so we have 110 to run outlets,refrig,microwave we r still plugged in but since we have no charger/ inverter and we sacrifice the 50 amp like the ability to start the gen we have to keep the batteries up will starting the rig intermittent keep our batteries charged or do we just put a charger on the batteries

Too many unknowns. You "rigged" the inverter/charger but the inverter/charger doesn't work? Why aren't you fixing/replacing the inverter/charger?

Are you running the outlets, etc from the inverter or from shore power?

If you just need to keep the batteries charged for DC loads get a cheap battery charger.

If you are running the inverter to supply 120 VAC you will need a multi-hundred dollar charger to keep up.

I'd plug the Batteries into a Deltran Battery Tender.
They do a GREAT job!

Let me Clarify for you. We have a 2016 Thor Palazzo diesel pusher. The inverter/ charger took a crap we Have a new one on Order won't be here for a couple of days. We R Fulltime RVers so repair guy rigged the current inverter/charger so we had power to live in it for our outlets refrigerator and microwave Until the unit arrived. We need to keep our batteries charged. We r plugged in but not charging like normal because the unit Crapped. What I asked is if the RV running for periods of time would charge the batteries. Or use a battery charger to charge them. Bob seems to have the best answer.
