    3010 converter location

    Need some help finding the converter on my new 3010 cyclone. spent about 40 minutes pulling covers and panels with no luck. Found a lot of other stuff but no converter yet. Had a lot smaller toy hauler before this and there wasn't so many places to hide these things. Life is getting complicated. I figured it would be nice to know where this stuff is before it breaks, so I,m not up in the middle of a cold night trying to figure it out. Any help here would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hi oldwoodsman and welcome to the forum. I don't have a Cyclone, but it seems that the traditional place for converters is behind the bulkhead in the basement. You will have to remove the panels to gain access. On the off door side there may be a couple of screws in the UDC (universal docking center) that hold one of the panels in. Once you get back there you will see the water heater, furnace, water pump and converter.
    But like I said, I don't own a Cyclone, so I don't know if that info is correct. Have fun exploring.

    Peace

    I don't know the Cyclone either, but in most rigs, the converter is very close to the 12V fuse panel, usually more or less right behind it.

    And unless they've cleaned up their act, it's buried under a jumble of electrical wires, dust and plumbing. Best to move it to where it's easily accessible, the cooling fan is not obstructed, and the unit is not in danger of getting drowned by a water leak.

    Thanks for your answers, but I've been in there, behind fuse panel and behind bulkhead in cargo hold and didn't see it, maybe it was buried under all the wires, water lines, and dust "some things just don't change" maybe I'll plug it in and listen for the hum. when I run the gen too much noise to hear it.

    Here's a hint. In the first photo, you can just barely see it behind the toilet drain in the back of the photo, under all the wires. The black box is my surge suppressor after I moved it from under the kitchen cabinet on the other side of the bulkhead. (Dealer installed it there for me originally) The second photo is where I remounted both devices to be protected and accessible.

    You can plug your coach in to shore power and turn on all the lights. That should be enough to make the fan in the converter come on.

    We have a 2010 3010 and the inverter was right where Johndar shows it, buried under a mess of wires,plumbing and trash. Took mine out to install an inverter/converter in a more accessible, safer (no water leaks) place.

    Behind this panel

    The white "pie plate" access hatch is for the plug.

    thanks for the reply Porthole, but I'd found it by some more searching and is right where you say.
