Power to thermostat?

Trying to figure out where the thermostat gets its power from? Our forward AC has no power and thus doesn't work. Went up to the roof and pulled the cover but couldn't find anything that looked suspect. I have also flipped the 110v breaker for this AC to no avail. The rear AC works fine thankfully.

Where can I find more areas to start troubleshooting this? Does 12v power run through the furnace for both thermostats on Redwoods like it does on other RV's?

Had a similar situation in ours that turned out to be loose wires on the breaker. Tightened them down (and a lot of other loose wires) and AC was back and running. No problems since.

There is also a fuse in the thermostat that you might check if you haven't already done so.

Color me stupid. Didn't have a multimeter with me, grabbed an el cheap on one from Harbor Freight (as I have 3 good ones at home...) and voila, bad fuse! Easiest fix ever thank goodness. Not certain what caused the fuse to blow but haven't used the RV in about 10 months so I'm not going to worry about it unless I get another problem.

Yes, the small fuse in the bedroom thermostat. Ran the AC for 2 days and no other problems.
