Need to use multimeter and check solenoids under the hood. also do you have power when engine or generator is running? if so. then you probably have a bad solenoid. use multimeter and check 12 volt and 110 power. locate converter and check power output. also check power panel and make sure all fuses are good.

What could be my problems if my battery was week but when I jump start it on my rv the lights worked but the 120 volt wouldn't

the 120 volt works of an inverter that takes a strong battery for it to work
jump starting is only 12 volts and that is expanded to 120 volts by the inverter
jump starting could also damaged the inverter with a power surge from connecting and disconnecting the jumper battery
Fit a new battery or have the old one load tested to ensure that the battery is failing
have the inverter tested for operation
could be a simple fuse in the inverter

I need an owner's manual for this RV: 2003 Lexington Forest River. Please help. thanks

You may luck out and be able to get one through First River if you write, email, or call them. You can get contact info on their web site, or search ebay or just Google "owners manual for 2003 Lexington by Forest River" and it's a pain but you just sort through the links until you find what you need. Good luck.

Where is the power converter located in a 2007 forest river Cherokee camper

Look for breaker panel, usually a brown cover/door. Under fridge, on end of bench seat, or under, even the washroom on wall is used now. If all else fails, turn on all lights (12V) and listen for a small fan to come on. That's the converter cooling fan that usually comes on when you add load.

How do I obtain Schematics and diagrams for wiring

They do not exist. Forest River may build three of the same unit side by side at the exact time and everyone of them be wired differently. I worked for a dealership that sold Forest River products exclusively and it was a real night mare at times.
