Passenger Chair Controls Quit

I have lost the controls for the passenger captains chair. Obviously an electrical issue but where to look. The two plugs under the chair are connected correctly. Any ideas where to go from here?

"Golfer Guy".....on my 2014, the fuse for that was in the front run bay. You have the fuses against the back which you see when you open the bay door. There are also three black boxes. On my 2014, one of those back boxes had a fuse in the lower right for the passenger chair.

My 2018 Spartan Dutch Star passenger seat fuses are in the drivers side most forward basement door.
You need to remove the fuse box cover and if i remember correctly the diagram showing which fuses control what elements is on the back of the cover.
By the way, mine kept blowing fuses if I held the switch for the foot rest too long - be sure you release the switch quickly when retracting the foot rest.

Thanks guys, found it. I didn't realize there were fuses in that black box in the front run bay. Lots of them behind the box on the wall. Now I know.

Blown 25 amp fuse. Easy fix.

Thanks

"Golfer Guy".....I took all of those black box covers off and photographed the fuse locations on the back side. I also photographed the back wall of fuses, the fuses in the cord reel bay, the fuses in the starting battery bay (another black box) and the fuses in the half bath. I printed them out in color (8.5 x 11). I keep them in a three ring binder. That's how I knew where the fuse you wanted was located. It's sure a lot easier to look through photos for your fuses than bays.

Lastly, if you blew that fuse, you most likely pinched some wiring when you turned the chair. I would look for some chaffing and reinforce with split wrap or tape.

DS Don, great idea with the pics. I have a project today. Definitely will check the wiring.

Crazy how many good ideas there are on this forum.

I feel like people are watching out for me and keeping me from making stupid mistakes.

Thanks
