This is the sub-panel, so the circuits connected to it are for everything which can be powered from the inverter (and from shore power when it is available).

There appear to be two breakers in Cathy's sub-panel box, but unfortunately I don't see readable labels (and the panel is buried in the cabinet rather than being accessible like the main panel). These breakers must supply the circuits for the microwave and all outlets.

I think that is our silver toggle switch under the driver's side dinette. What switch are you talking about here? Those breakers? I expect the toggle switch has been moved from when yours was installed, Unless there is more than one silver toggle switch?

I am pretty sure that those are two 15-amp breakers in the box on right in post #5 so I am supposing that you did not have that and it is an improvement they made.

Yes, that looks like two breakers so Escape has partially implemented an improvement which Doug pioneered - it's not just one circuit, but it's not split into as many as Doug has used.

The heat pads are 12V powered - the breakers in the extra box (the sub-panel) are for 120V AC power, so they're not related. It might be worth going through all the visible switches, trying them out to see what they do, and adding (or clarifying) labels.

The other switch which is normally included is a battery cut-off, to disconnect the batteries (from everything except the solar power system) when the trailer is not in use.

I believe that silver toggle on the driver's dinette is the master cut off switch, at least that is what is on BlackJack. The heat pads switch is identical to that but is located ??, perhaps under the bed. In the 19 Escape it was under the rear bed, behind the dual doors on driver side. Look for another toggle switch.

Sorry, I meant that the toggle switch for the heat pads is inside the bench. (I use the master switch every time we go to the trailer and it is on the bench face, no doubt just like yours).

Our switch for the heat pads requires lifting the driver's side bench. It is down inside. So your early one is under the bed and they have moved the switch for the heat pads.

Yes, mine was made a few months after Doug posted his mods and the outlets are now on two separate circuits. Thanks Doug.

I think that should be thanks to Tammy and Reace. They listen to and act upon feedback. I am not aware of any other manufacturer of anything who is as responsive.
