Probably got it figured out and never returned. I see it a lot with new members with low post counts.

Reset is next to the two batteries under the step

Hi, Soupy! I did not scroll down to see if someone answered your question, But I experienced this problem on my 2016 Vegas. On the left side of the batteries is a reset toggle. It will be very hard to get more than two fingers into the space on the left. You will reach in and find a small red button; push the button; and then you can find the re-set lever and pull it toward you. You will then have full power to your coach. I hope someone has already informed you of this. There is a forum member out there that did an amazing job of putting together a Vegas user manual; he is retired military and does not charge for the manual. It is far better than anything available (including Thor). Good luck!

We had a little mishap with our 2018 Vegas 24.1 and can't seem to figure out how to fix it. While installing the coach batteries, one of the wires fell through the step and touched metal. Since then, we cannot get power to the main switch, monitoring panel, or lights. It does not work with the batteries or when connected to shore power or with the generator running.
We have replaced the main switch (the tab on the back broke off when we were using a voltmeter to test it) and also replaced the battery disconnect relay. Two 40 amp fuses were blown (believe the reverse polarity fuses) and were replaced. The 100 amp breaker near the batteries was tripped, but not the 50 amp. We have checked the breakers and fuses in the main box as well as the one in the engine compartment.

Any other ideas?
I don't think Soupy is coming back but after rereading this I feel the need to qualify a few things to help a newbie who reads this understand.

First is the tittle of the thread. Power to the main switch. The RV has two electric systems. One 12 volt and one 120 volt. Generally speaking Power in the RV system means the 120 volt system. The main switch would be the 120 volt main breaker. What Soupy is calling the main switch is the "Battery Disconnect Switch"

The question from 16ACE27 was spot on. "Discribe "IT". He asked before I could.

We have checked the breakers and fuses in the main box as well as the one in the engine compartment. Again there is a combination of terms in this statement. Breakers = 120 volts. Fuses = 12 volts. Main box = 120 circuit box. "one in the engine compartment = the 12 volt chassis 12 volt fuse box.

A person has to be well versed in RV systems to follow what is being talked about here. So far we somehow seem to be on the same page with the 12 volt electric system.

Let the nitpicking begin
