Question about Coachmen 2011 Brookstone 366RE
If there is not a thermal overload reset on the convertor then it is an automatic reset built into the unit. When the convertor overloads and kicks off, it usually means that either something on the circuit has shorted out causing it to trip or you overloaded the convertor drawing too much power. Either way, if the convertor hasn't reset itself after a cool down period then more than likely, you convertor went bad and will need to be replaced.

First, I'm assuming you have checked the battery and it is good. Check all the fuses/breakers between the converter and the battery. If your system has a battery isolator, make sure it is set to use and not store. Check your Deep Cycle battery ground, this is often overlooked! So be sure to check battery voltage at the positive terminal then the chassis, and then at the terminals. If it isn't the same you have a bad ground.
With the converter on, and battery hooked up check your voltage at the battery. If you don't have a charge wizard it should be at 14.4V. One note, many converters will not show a voltage if they are not hooked up to a battery, or if the battery has a dead short internally. So if you are unhooking the battery and plugging in the converter to see if you have voltage that may not work. If all else fails, get 2 pieces of wire and hook your converter directly to the battery.If you still have no voltage, and you know for a fact yoyr battery is good, then your converter is shot.

Wiring diagrams are not available as the manufactures to not publish them. There will be a series of circuit breakers that control the slide, jacks and awning. The circuit breakers are small rectangle 12v breakers with a terminal stud on each end. Some are automatic reset and others have a small black button on the side that must be reset. On a motor coach you will find these in a storage compartment and they probably will not be labeled. On travel trailers they will be located near the front of the trailer and often times will be linked together with a copper bus bar. On 5th wheels they will be located in the front storage compartment close to the battery box. Follow the positive lead from the battery back and you should locate them relatively easy. Next, make sure the nuts on the terminals are tight and using a test light make sure that you have power to each terminal on each circuit breaker. If you do not have power to the output side of the breaker then it is bad and will need to be replaced. They are amp rated so make sure you replace the breaker with the proper amp rating. I.e, 30amp or 40amp. In some rare cases the inline circuit breaker for the jacks is relatively close to the jack behind where the switch is mounted.
