Ceiling Fan Problems

Recently purchased a used 2014 3100RL. Second time out we noticed that the ceiling fan & fan light in the kitchen/living area won't turn on. Checked the fuses but all seem to be fine. We're kind of new to this RVing so any guidance would be highly appreciated

Which switch are you using? The pull chains or the switch on the stairs?

That is AC powered. You are plugged in, right?

Yes we are plugged in to 50 amp service. We are using the pull chains for the fan and the light. Do not see a switch by the stairs

We have a switch by the stairs for our ceiling fan. It is a very large switch and it is not marked what it is for. Perhaps you have a similar switch?

We have had a wall switch for all of our Montana units.

Ours has a big paddle wall switch as well as the pull chains. The original fan only had one speed though and I replaced it with a low-profile one that actually works.

Guess what? We also have that wall switch!!! I feel like a fool! We were told by the previous owner that that switch was a total power disconnect for the trailer. Would be nice if it was labeled!

Thanks everyone for your help. That's why I love this group!
