    Hi All,
    I'm new to this site. I found it as I was trying to find cheap insurance. I just bought a 1998 Winnebago 33WB. I don't have any power to the house
    part of the home. I am having guest here for Christmas and would like to use it for guest.
    How do you open the slider ? Where is the circuit breaker for the back of the home ? I don't have any 12 Volt lighting, furnace, etc. The (2) 6 volt batteries
    are fully charged. I can't find the switch that you can manualy cut the 12 volt power to the home. The battery to the chassis is fine and is
    running perfect, it has 32 k on the odometer.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello and welcome to RVUSA. Look under the refer, if I remember right, for the 12 volt fuse bus. In the outside storage compartment next to the entry door you will find a small round hole in the back of the compartment. You need to have the hand crank to reach in that hole to crank the slide open. Good Luck.

    Have you tried contacting the former owner. My HR has a manual switch in the rear bay where the batteries are located and an electrical cutoff switch by the entrance door.
