2008 Destination Freightliner rear fuse box location

Freightliner says there is a fuse box located behind the drive wheels that has fuses for the trailer wiring and engine fan clutch. Does anyone know where it is located?
Stuck on the side of road, engine overheats within 4 miles of driving
Thanks

From another online forum:

I have a 2008 Winne Destination and had the same problem.

You need to find the Freightliner Aft fuse and relay box.

I found mine in the compartment with the power cord behind a panel that does not look removable. It was a real bear to get access. I made an access door in the panel before replacing the panel.

What you are looking for is a covered box with many cable plugs going to it.
It is the same as the one inside the (large) forward fuse box.

Use care removing the panel if you have 12 volt circuit breakers in the compartment. (The aft fuse box is below)
See also View DA on Sheet 5 of the Winnebago Chassis Wiring Installation Diagram (link here). Complete set of diagrams for your coach here or here, depending on serial number.

On my 2006 Freightliner chassis, those fuses/relays are located passenger side, in the compartment just behind the rear wheels. They are located in two black boxes. Easy to find. Just turn on ignition switch, and without the engine running turn on a turn signal. Walk around the coach and you should hear a" tick" "tick" "tick" sound from the relay.

Here are a few pictures of what mine look like.(covers removed)

2004 Vectra side radiator. Fuses located in driver side side radiator compartment at far rear. You remove the radiator vent panel screws out at bottom 2 corners, lift up and prop open cover. Fuses in a couple boxes on right as you look at radiator. Could be in similar area even if you don't have side radiator.

I thanks for the reply's
I finally found it Mark.
My problem was I dident think an engineer would put a fuse box in a place where you would have to remove 2 panels (12 screws) just to check a fuse. With all the room in that compartment it just seems excessive.
Again thanks to all. Another problem solved by the good people on the Irv2 formes
If you need to find yours on a Destination MH PM me
Dennis

I went through the same problem 2 years ago with Winnebago could not get power to the trailer socket Winnebago kept telling me it was in that compartment I hadn't had a recent eye examination but I know I'm not that freaking blind. After two phone calls to Winnebago I decided to remove the screws from that big metal box that you are describing and sure enough there is a fuse box in there the box is big enough to put 10 of them fuse boxes in. Glad you found it that is one thing you will remember now where it is located just saying

Just to add I didn't put the box back together the way it come apart the second panel had a lip on it making it so you had to remove the lower panel first I put it together so the lip was on the outside instead of the inside and then just covered it with a piece of black gorilla tape afterwards in case I do have to get in there in a hurry
