By default Entity Framework will call the dbo user/schema when attempting to communicate with the database. Today I received an exception because the tables I was calling was not [dbo].[Customer] but [Sales].[Customer].

To change this in the fluent API this can be changed in the modelBuilder by adding the following:
When using data annotations add the following:
[Table(“Customer”, Schema = “Sales”)]
Public Class Customer
