No power at 7 pin connector

I don't have power to the 7 pin connector for connecting the toad lights to the coach. All the lights on the coach (2004 MAPD 4018) are working but no sign of power to the receptical. Is there a separate fuse for the receptical?

I would look and see if and where the plug pigtails into the coach to check backwards from there.

Some Newmar DP's in rear compartment near rear wheels drivers side have a fabric cover that you peel back and has a fuse block behind it and may also have the BIRD System connections also.

Take a look at your chassis batteries: on my DSDP there were a couple in-line fuse holders right near the battery terminals. Had to pop the caps off to get at the fuses. I once didn't have toad stop & tail lights and one of those fuses had blown. Hope this helps.

no power to 7 pin connector

drilldoc - I've tried to attach a photo of the battery compartment with arrows pointing to the fuse holders for the toad lights. email me joelyn5@verizon.net if this doesn't work and I'll send the photo directly to you.

Thanks to all for your suggestions. It turned out that there is a storage area below the battery tray. There were two fuse boxes in that area. One had 7 fuses and 8 relays and that was where the problem was found. The factory tech had referred me to the compartment behind the left front wheel, and the under hood area mentioned in one of the previous suggestions. Finally the factory suggested contacting Freightliner. They pointed me to the area under the batteries, also suggested by the factory tech. The difference was Freightliner told me the exact fuse that had failed which was identified as Mkr. The 20 amp fuse had blown. Replacing that fuse took care of the problem with the 7 pin connector.

I agree with Gary, thanks posting your findings.

Good thing fuses are only in 12-13 different spots, it keeps thing narrowed down.
