National Electric Code says that the breaker should be in battery compartment within 50 cms of terminal.
#1 Question: What causes the tripped breaker? The Jensen radio in the Master BR shows time but nothing else, fuse is good
#2 Question: How to put a battery disconnect breaker where it belongs--do I need to remove the breaker presently located in an inaccessible place?
#3 Question: Doesn't RVIA have a stake in this sort of code violation /fire hazard? Their name and seal are on the door.
Does it trip if running on Genny?
Trying to picture what would trip a 12v breaker when plugging into SP... Converter is only device that would cross over.
Jensen radio likely getting 'keep alive' power from chassis.
You can always add another breaker... But the inaccessible one could still be the one that trips... Even if it is rated at higher current.
Following NEC is always a good idea, but an RV isn't a house... Not clear it would be enforceable...
RVIA is not responsible for Thor's manufacturing...
