Circuit breakers/fuses?????

Greetings from a new owner,
The owners manual on our 2012 36RL leaves a lot to be desired. It gives me no guidance whatsoever about the location of circuit breakers and 12 volt fuses. It is a pretty sorry written manual.

In the coat closet by the entry is a black panel that probably contains the fuses, but I haven't got the know-how to open it without tearing it up. I have pressed on the corners, pulled on it, etc.

Can anyone out there help me locate these breakers and fuses?

Thanks in advance for the help.

A lot of the fuse panels in RVs are the same style, so pressing on the cover might open it. That's how mine is.

On my 2013 FB the fuse panel is in the coat closet just inside the exterior door. To open the door press the center of the right hand side of the door, the door will open.

The AC circuit breakers are on the left side, the 12v fuses are on the right.

That's the style mine has.

The RL is basically the same only it's hinged at the top. Push on the ribbed section at the bottom to open

Thank you everyone. On ours you have to push the top center. I guess I pushed everywhere but there. I appreciate the help

Turns out mine in the 2015-38FL also has the 90amp converter built in to charge the 12v house batteries. The converter/charger seems ok but the house batteries could be improved.

The panel is at the bottom of the pantry.

....and a Doctor labeled all of the breakers on mine! I can't make out but one or two

Some other useful information on your Progressive Dynamics 4500 Series converter - there is a Wizard Button shown below that lets you select the type of battery charging - boost, normal, storage, and manual operation.

I've attached the pdf manual

If you look at the Electrical drawing for your model they list the breaker & fuse assignments...not to say they are accurate but at least what was engineered.

I should probably take some time and go through the drawing, verify, and re-label the panel.

My breaker locations don't always agree with the Redwood drawing. Just have to go through them one by one.

I got my label maker and labeled our panel so I can read it.
We kept tripping the main breaker, Redwood put both the Washer and Dryer on the same leg in the breaker panel.
I moved / swapped the location of two breakers so the Washing Machine is on one leg and the Dryer is on the other leg, no more problems with tripping the main now.

50A on the one leg should run both the Washer and Dryer without an issue, but there may have been additional loads on there such as maybe both ACs?

We have lucked out on the balance, and even our 5500 generator seems to operate without fail. Always was a concern on prior units because the output is 30A and 20A, and if the 20A is carrying the heavy leg it kicks the breakers on the generator.
