Seneca Electric Stairs

I have a 2016 Jayco Seneca FS37 and I have problems with the electric stairs. If I open the door with the switch on, they won't go out. If I press the auxiliary power start button under the steering wheel, they will go out. I have taken it to the dealer a few times (that is another issue), and they say in the notes on my invoice "Found main breaker at truck batteries to be tripped. Reset to correct."

I have been told to remove the panel next to the driver seat and that is where this breaker is. I have removed the panel and I don't see any breaker. Does anybody know where this "main breaker" is?

Thanks,
Tod

My 2014 is indeed located on top of the (2) chassis batteries accessed by removing the panel in the driver doorway/steps area. 3 Torx screws to get the panel off.

My breaker is affixed to a bracket Jayco installed on top of my chassis batteries. Smaller guage wiring than battery cables obviously. Has a button on the breaker to press to reset the protection. Other Seneca owners have also recently posted about this exact issue but I don't remember if there were pictures or not.

If it has happened repeatedly something may be amiss and further troubleshooting may be in order.

We don't have the exact answer you are looking for but there are many second-generation Seneca owners on these forums with loads of knowledge of their motorhomes.
They should be here soon.

The first-generation Seneca's steps are hot wired to the coach batteries.

Thanks for the information. I looked again, and I still don't see a breaker. I took a picture of the top of my batteries and uploaded it to one drive:

If you can see this breaker, please let me know.

Thanks,

We had the same issue with our 2016 Seneca FS which affected the stairs and occasionally the slides. The dealer ended up replacing a circuit board in the back bedroom which controls everything and since we have not had any more issues. Sorry I donít know the name of the circuit board or exact location.

I opened the picture and I see the breaker in the picture. The breaker doesn't look like a normal circuit breaker, there is a contact you push back into breaker to close it, the breaker is the assy. mounted on top of your battery bracket.

Roberson RV in Salem is who tracked my issue and did all the warranty work and you are welcome to call them. I think I recall the jacks working intermittently as well.

I donít want to mislead you but they originally thought it was that exact breaker but then tracked it down to the circuit board in the back on mine.
