Default House lights

Hello all, I'm a newbie. I have a xplorer xlw, my house light will not come on. I was able to start the rig and I started it with the house batteries fine. I can't check the tanks or start the generator. Do you think it could be a fuse or circuit. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Thanks stibbs

Is there anything currently able to be powered by the house battery? If not, I would be on the search for a master shutoff switch.

If some things work and others don't, then I would be looking for fuses, which ideal are ll in one place.

The link with the engine starter bypasses the rest of the house circuits due to the high current load. What your test did show was that the house battery is at least substantially charged

This button activates an underhood solenoid that links the house batteries with the engine start underhood battery in the event that it has been drained down enough to prevent starting the engine. When the button is released, the solenoid decouples the house batteries from the engine start circuit automatically.

What year is your Xplorer. We have a 2000 XLW. In ours there is no master shut off switch for the house battery. If nothing is working on your house batteries, I would first check your ground cable on your battery. There are also circuit breakers under the bed. You should check those too. Good luck.

Hello, we own a 2004 Xplorer XLW. there is a switch under the front passenger seat ( it rotates from verticle to 90 degrees to the right) and this allows the house batteries to power the house.
