Find the solenoid, there is a small 5 amp in line fuse on the wire controlling the solenoid at the solenoid itself.

We're new to this and have a 2013 Ace 27.1. We had a problem with the batteries when we first purchased and it turned out to be the master switch had flipped. I don't understand all this battery lingo yet so thought I'd throw it out there to look for the master switch. I can take a photo if needed (it doesn't look like a switch at all) and ours is located in the battery bay.

It's a circuit breaker and it looks like this:



Push in the blue button, the yellow flag pops out and it disconnects the power. Push the yellow flag back in and you're hot again.

...And you access this breaker from underneath the rig?

No, battery bay.

It was the circuit breaker and it was under the bottom drawer by the sink.

Thanks
