I cannot find the breaker for the house battery. Iíve looked around battery area,behind kitchen drawers and under the cabin area near the battery.If you have this same unit, please tell me where it is located. Thank you.

It's usually attached to a frame rail under the coach fairly close to the batteries. If your batteries are under your steps, crawl under the coach and look at the frame rail just rearward of the steps/battery box.

I've looked, been under the RV, do you have the same model? I think the location is going to be specific to this model, thanks

I have a 24F on the FORD E-Series chassis. If yours is the Chevrolet version, it may be different.
Here's a pic of the entry on our Ford class C. The battery compartment is under the top step - as usual on this style of Ford E-Series chassis.

The other pic is the surface mount (resettable) 70 amp circuit breaker mounted on the frame rail as I described. There is another 80 amp breaker to the right, which is for the aftermarket leveling system.

Another possible place to look is where the battery cables enter your coach to the electrical compartment. I believe your electric fuse/breaker panel is at the foot of the corner bed. Try looking under the coach in that area - maybe the breaker is mounted before the battery cables enter the coach under the foot of the bed.

If that fails, go to the battery compartment and find the battery cables. They will probably be in a plastic wire loom for protection. Carefully trace those cables - they will eventually terminate at the breaker.

Sorry to be redundant... but THOROGHLY look on all sides of the battery box. Thor has been known to do some "unorthodox" placement of components!
