I don't find anything electrical by the bathroom wall except in the the bathroom the GFCI & the bathroom light switch. And on the other side of that wall (the hallway) is the thermostat and switch for the bedroom slide.

It might have been me that found the breaker in the BCC in the storage compartment under the seat. I, too, spent hours trying to find the breaker and finally called RV Customs. Folks were great and promptly sent me attached fuse diagram. They went so far as to make sure I knew what I was looking for.
It was me who had the 12V issue in my ‘08 Hurricane.
The tiny reset button that is shown in that pdf diagram of the BCC under the hood against the right side firewall is exactly what cured mine. Although, my generator had no trouble starting even though my 12V was dead.

There is something under the driver's seat but I didn't see anything on it that looked resettable. Kind of looked similar to a small inverter maybe 4" square.
Didn't have time this morning b4 work but I should have time to dig around some more the next few days.

Problem solved. I decided - for grins - even though there wasn't any significant corrosion, to remove the battery wires to clean all the connections and discovered a broken wire. It was the positive wire from the batteries to the coach. Weird thing is, it felt tight when I wiggled it but came off when I loosened it.
$5.59 for a new terminal end at the local auto parts store.
Yesterday a tech rep from Thor called to help me find the 100a breaker and so far that is still elusive (if there is one at all).

FYI, during my talk with the tech rep we did figure the 50a breaker was tripped which I had reset. When tripped It's not real obvious since the indicator doesn't protrude very much when tripped, maybe 1/16-1/32 inch and is very small. Second pic i drew a line to it. Its under the bed and mattress.

That's not normally the "50 Amp Breaker" we look for, that looks more like a thermal overload. This is what the 50 amp breaker normally looks like:

Yes, thats what the Thor guy was referring to, but I still haven't found it. I've looked everywhere he suggested and then some, also traced wiring to no avail.
Fortunately it's not tripped.

So your extended Easter Egg Hunt continues........

Assuming Thor actually installed it.

That's my exact thoughts!
I'm starting to think the 100a/50a circuit breaker guy was off that day.
I wonder if they would sell me one to install myself?

Here's what you need to install a 50A breaker, if you don't have one:
