??Where is the 12 VDC? There are two small oblong plastic pieces that wires go into. Not sure they contained anything and were afraid to pry open. Is that where the 12VDC is located? My husband is pretty good at fixing things but electrical is not his forte. We appreciate your advise

OK, The fuses for the electric chairs can be a few places. Some RV makers use the fuse in the Chassis fuse block that would be somewhere in the front area of the motorhome. Could be inside/under the dash area or outside in a front storage compartment or raise the front hood and there. Other use a RV maker(not chassis maker) fuse block that will also be up front in the areas I just described. IT WILL NOT be in what would be called the 12 volt fuse center that controls all the coach lights and appliances. Also, you found the plastic quick connect. Make SURE that the 2 wires. 2 input and then 2 output. are IN that quick connect. When you rotate and go to far it rarely disconnects that plastic quick connect. Instead it PULLS one or both of the wires out of that quick connect. Doug

I've at times thought of an electric chair for co pilot. 6,000 volts and 500 amps

Thanks for the update, glad to hear you got your seat working...well, maybe I should say your passenger chair...

You two now know more about the chair electrical system than you ever in your entire life wanted to know.

EVERY 12 volt appliance has a fuse/circuit breaker. Doug

It should be a rocker switch with the bottom being "EJECT".[emoticon]

I suggested she wear a dog training collar I could shock her when she annoyed me, only took me 3 weeks in hospital and traction to get over her reaction.
