Default Newbie Needing Help With 1999 Coachmen

After a year of looking for a class B I recently bought a 1999 Ford Coachmen M-19 rear dinette. It had some issues but the price was right. I've fixed the minor mechanical issues and am now starting on the RV systems. As an ex-plumber I'm assuming I can handle the plumbing. I'm not experienced with electrical systems & the Coachmen manual is about useless. I hooked it to shore power before buying and everything (ac/lights/fridge) seemed to work. It didn't have a house battery and the generator had been removed.

I installed a house battery today. So far I've figured out how to turn on interior/porch lights & the water pump. The vent fan came on when hooked to shore power but I can't get it to come on with house power. I've located the solenoids but can't find a fuse block or circuit breakers. I've checked the location for a "power center" shown in the manual & can't find squat. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Most rv's have a master battery disconnect switch. Mine is located near the power center (inverter/charger, fuses, breakers, etc). If you've located the disconnect switch, I'd look for a panel or other access point near by.

Which of these youtube Coachmen models is closest to yours.
