Alan I'm not sure what breaker is involved but if you are having issues with yours you need to also consider the Potter Brumfield 12V/120 relay that is normally incorporated in that heater circuit. The older style of these relays do fail usually because of burnt contacts. You can replace the old style with all electronic circuitry models. Do a search here on WOG for Potter Brumfield. My relay was located at the back of the cupboard above the heater. You have to remove the carpet covered cupboard back board.

Since I originally posted I have deduced that the relay is probably the problem. You can hear the relay click but it will not send electricity to the heater. Would you know what the part number is for a new one. I couldn't find the numbers on WOG. Thanks

Alan, have you pulled the heater out and checked the internal safety thermal cutoff on the heater. This is the first thing to check. While you have it out, give it a good vacuum cleaning. The switch is at the top of the front of the heater. You have to take the cover off the old heater to see the switch.

If the relay is clicking, the thermal cutoff will stop the heater from coming on.

Also, there was a recall on the toe heaters, we replaced both of ours with new ones.

Morey warning is a good one. These heaters need cleaning or they could cause a fire. They have been recalled but that recall is over so you have to pay for it yourself. Here is the link that will provide you all the info on the relay and the heater.................http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...ead.php?t=8611

Alan,

On my bus, the kitchen electric heater is wired through the front air conditioner switch on the driver's left console. That switch must be on for the kitchen electric heater to work.

No, it is among the usual circuit breakers below the bedroom tv (in my coach). On right side, about 4 from the bottom.

It should be marked in the bedroom load center.
