Smile Sunliner 78

My family's been camping since I was young. My husband and I tent camped since 1987 and inherited a 1978 Sunline M-17 1/2 SB a few years later. My genius contractor dad remodeled the interior building new counter tops, table and beds. He was a master contractor, electrician and plumber, licenses to prove it. The camper has been a true gem to us, our two children and three g-children and MANY friends.
We have suffered very few problems over the years (always minor).....until now. Yesterday, during the winterizing process, we flipped the switch to the water pump to circulate the antifreeze and NOTHING!
Where or where is the fuse panel.
My dad passed in 2005 and although my husband is a wonderful provider, he would never be nominated as handyman extraordinaire, nor handyman in training.
We LOVE our camper and live in the mountains with very cold/freezing winters and I am horrified of my sweet Sunliner freezing and pipes bursting leading to her demise. Can anyone help? Where oh where is that fuse panel?
That's where I plan to start my diagnostic venture.
Thanks for tolerating my incessant whining but I am in dire straits.

In My 1990 17' sunline, the fuses are in the converter which is under the rear sofa bed towards the drivers side. Yours are most likely in the converter also, but the converter maybe in a different spot.

JohnB is on a distinguished road
The fuse panel is most times mounted just inside the camper in the area near where the shore power cord come into the side of the camper. Find the power cord outside the camper, then look inside in that area. It can be inside a cabinet, way down on the floor, or under a bed etc.

Hope this helps.

John

1978 Sunline fuses / water pump

I found the breakers in the cabinet under the refrigerator but there is one main and two small breakers. Tripping them off and on didn't fix my problem. Is there a possibility that there are fuses as well?
There are no visible fuses anywhere inside the camper. I've searched every nook and cranny.
Thanks for the help. I was hoping to spare myself a trip to (and the expense of) the camper doctor.

There are fuses, if you find a metal box that probably is the converter/charger there mostly likely is a small cover held with one screw (like a little window) behind that cover will be the fuses. If the pump had been working sometimes a gentle love tap with something a good deal heavier than a spoon might beat it into submission.

I will look for the box. It may be right under my nose. Is there a possibility that it is behind the fridge?

Usually they are not real hidden because there are fuses inside and there should be some wires there too. It requires power from the camper power plug to act as a charger. You can try this they do hum when powered if you have 3 breakers there should be a 30, 20 and a 15 amp breaker plug in and turn off the 30 then back on you see if you can hear it working worth a shot.

Perfect, heard it. Found it, fixed it. I couldn't have done it without your help.
