I know you said you checked all under the bed but did you actually push on them one at a time make sure they are fully seated? I believe it is in that box so maybe it is just loose.

Also, nothing else seems to have lost power

I know in some of the older RV's the booster was supplied by the same circuit that supplies the cigarette lighter in the coach. If you don't have power there, then it might be a 12 volt fuse under the dash.

I did a quick review of my manual and I can't find where it discusses that fuse.

You should have power to charging station in same slide. Ours is in bottom small cabinet. Have you checked that? If power to charging station OK you could tap into that. Did you pull fireplace and look at the mess of wires? Did toner find wire in basement (first bay street side) under slide? All wires leave forward end of slide via big bundle of wires headed for the rear. Pretty sure it goes thru front wet bay and comes back inside behind bottom pantry drawer. There are a couple fuses there. Keep us posted.

When you mentioned the harness came up through the pantry i'm guessing your'e referring to the one left of the entry door, mine has the washer dryer there , had that area torn down last week to fix the dryer( if you've got the same setup there's a old style glass buss inline fuse inside the back panel of the dryer) didn't find a fuse panel there, had the drawer out also, but then again I was concentrating on the dryer.

There is a BUNCH of wires on floor behind stairwell switches. Just remove bottom pantry drawer (drawer under washer). There are at least two inline fuses there - no standard fuse block. Since work was done recently in that area I bet you are close to a fix. Power to awning motors, awning lights, porch light, ceiling lights, generator, invertor, steps and a bunch more stuff is there. Good luck.

Well, did find 2 fuses, both good , further checking w/toner shows harness going through house battery compartment down to LARGE harness running down frame rail, gonna call thor tomorrow , if they can't help I'll just grab power from house batteries, fuse and labeled of course, I'll let you know what thor says.

Have not studied yet to be sure this applies to our Challenger. Maybe it will help.

this is probably ours, it matches what thor said, what's circled is not it though,look at p-1 #36, it is in a bad place but at least it's not upper right, that would be a hell no and i'd grab alternate power. gonna check it in a bit, will let you know.(you have great info! thanks)

The circle was there when I found the drawing. I have not even opened that box. VERY tight fit. Let us know how that part goes. We learn from each other!
