Only purchased the motorhome a few "months ago".

No lights on panel.

There is power at the 8 pin connector.

The 4 pin connector was already out when I started investigating.

It plugs in 2 different ways, so do you know which way the colored wires go from top to bottom?

What about the 6 pin connector? Does your control panel have the 4 pin connector plugged in? Can you get a better picture of the end of the connector, showing the locking tab? And a brighter picture of the 4 pin area on the control box?

If you hadn't guessed yet, the 4 pin connector goes to the touch panel. With that disconnected, nothing works. If you bought it that way, be prepared for the system to be badly broken.

Right. The connector is supposed to have a locking tab on it, and without a better picture of the connector and the controller, where the 4 pins are, I won't be able to get a good enough look at it.

I think I found the answer. I found a Power Gear manual with a drawing of the connector, and the orientation relating to the controller. It goes on the controller with the locking tab pointing toward the middle of the controller, not the edge.

Harry, you may have saved the day.
Hope to check it out in a couple days, our Michigan weather dropped from 67 yesterday to 37 today.
Soon as it gets a little warmer, I will let you know if that was the only problem.

Thank you!

**** Inline Fuse under dash, but

*** Nothing in battery

*** Can't find reset.
*** 12 Volt to pump.
Way past frustrated!
The Jack's are Power Gear brand.

If you happen to have any other ideas please call, my number is 231-225-1381 name is Jim.

Thanks for your help!
This happened to my Bigfoot. Neither Georgetown nor LCI had a clue where the breaker is.

It is behind the hydraulic pump. It is unusual looking because it is spark free to be near batteries which put out hydrogen. It has the little red pop out lever.

My unit trips from time to time if using auto leveling. I frequently manual level to avoid that and usually it is more stable because I extend jacks less.

It is a good idea to run your engine when leveling. It keeps the current and voltage up, reducing trips.
