Question 1st time out - Montana 3121RL

We are out for our very first time; we cannot get the ceiling fan/light to come on. We know about the switch by the control panel but pulling the chains does nothing. It worked during our orientation session; could the trip have jarred something loose? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

That is a 110 circuit so you need to check the breakers. Mine however much older than yours has a switch as well as the chains.

Welcome, you can figure anything can happen driving down the road!
Now would be a good time to check everything, screws, lug nuts, water connections and even light bulbs.
Enjoy

You have to get the large paddle switch and the fan coordinated. Did you try the paddle switch in both positions when pulling the chains?

Dick, I just can’t believe they would wire it wrong.

Thanks for the comments! We finally figured it out - it was the big unmarked switch in the control panel for the lights, awnings, etc. I thought it was the unmarked switch outside the panel. Thanks again!

Not sure of the year, but the 2020 my understanding is the ceiling fan is now 12v not AC. Not the problem just FYI.
