It may be to early to cheer but I'll go ahead anyway & see what tomorrow brings
Thanks to everyone who took the time to advize & support me with your replies
I did try most everything you suggested but after 4 hours this morning I was about to give up
I experienced the exact same problem some time ago & Fleetwood suggested a fix & everything worked fine
This time when I lost DC & no battery charging The first fix I looked at was the fix I did in the past
All that involved was looking into bottom of battery box where there is a small devise that when tripped a very small blackbutton pops out of this breaker & all one needs to do is push this button back into breaker which then does a reset & everything works but this time there was no button visible Therefore I just started looking at everything else
But lo & behold when I had given up I looked at this breaker & walla
there was the black button which I reset & now everything is working as designed
Just very thick skulled Thats me
Plan on contacing Fleetwood & getting a new breaker
Also I read that if I run into this problem again I need to knock on breaker with some force in order to completely make button pop out of breaker so it can then be reset
Hope when I check MH tommorow morning I still have DC & batteries are charging
Thanks again to all of you

No need to contact anyone. Look to see whether it is a 20A or 30A breaker, go to any decent auto parts store and buy a new one. They are very common, cheap and easy to find,

YEP....

Nothing more then a DC Circuit Breaker

Minimum of 30A----look for markings on side of CB

Thanks
That circuit breaker is located under many wires at bottom of battery box
Leary of working on any electrical device
If I disconnect from shore power , disconnect positive & negstive battery cables will it be safe for me to just place my hands with a wrench & etc & work on removing & replacing circuit breaker???
Will power from truck battery enter into picture
Thanks

*Disconnect AC Shore power so converter is not working.....it would place DC Voltage on one side of Circuit Breaker
* Disconnect battery Negative then Positive....Mark which is which so you do not reverse them when re-connecting
*Unplug truck/trailer Umbilical Cord


Then you can safely remove that DC Circuit Breaker and install New one
