Where is the dash fuse box for a 2005 Newmar Kountry Star???!!!

So after four days of conversations with Newmar and freightliner it has come down to where in the heck is the DASH fuse panel located ?? It is not in the normal places such as in the fuse box compartment under the drivers seat Nor behind the drawer in the console or up underneath the dash by the steering column or on the firewall !! This must be specific to this year and model because nobody seems to know where it is mounted !!! We are now completely sure if we can find that fuse box we can replace the relay and all will be well ... HELP!!!!!

Robert, what relay are you looking to replace ?

Does the top of your dash flip up , behind the instrument cluster, or have a Velcoed down panel ?

BTW; I've found 12 volt fuses, circuit breakers and relays, in 10 different locations , in my 99 DSDP.

I have the same year Northern Star. Mine is located directly in front of the steering wheel under an oval shaped plate on the dash. If you have that plate just pry up the oval as it's held down with patches of industrial strength velcro.

Similar to this:

Hi roberthale,
The fuse panel is a Newmar installed panel. Don't let them off the hook. Keep after them. There must be a Newmar employee in service or production that knows the answer. CS knows who these guys are.

NOPE , no Velcroed panel on the dash We are sure we can get the dash switches back!
Thanks!

Can you take pictures of your dash area , fuse area's of your coach in area's you have checked, and post them.
This link has been given for fuse and wiring locations, this has been what has been used for the 2003 --08 time period for all DP's and gas coach's.

I will be starting a new thread of all 12v wiring & fuse locations from the last 20 years that I have save and posted the last 14 years on Newmar's, I have collected, people have post their coach wiring locations with pictures.

Good morning… Here’s some pictures but there is no axis panel on the dash ,we have looked extensively under the dash, and the compartment on the passenger side behind the rear axle, of course the main fuse panel in the compartment under the driver side, also extensively on the firewall, we took out the drawer in the console between the passenger and the driver and have removed drawers and opened all the cabinets! This hidden – fuse panel seems to be specific to this year and model coach which is a 2005 model 3721 but if anyone has any idea where it could possibly be we would be very very grateful… We’re going on five days now looking !!!
Thanks for all your efforts !

Actually we’ve looked pretty much everywhere that we can think of… We’re gonna find it with the help of someone who has the exact same model and year I think but thank you for the suggestion!

Your picture is on page 19 of this link and the fuse panel is in the compartment outside below drivers seat location.
And what fuse are we looking for?
If is a fuse for your heating fan at bottom of your center dash console, that fan has a switch on dash to turn on fan, will have a high low position on switch.
Do not confuse with another switch high, mid, low that's for your over head windshield fans.

Good morning… I only wish that were true… Here’s a picture of the diagram inside the cover of the fuse panel in the compartment below the drivers seat … Once again thank you for your help but it seems no one knows where the actual DASH fuse panel is including many hours on the phone with NEWMAR iANF freightliner ... all of the switches on the dash do not function including power mirrors, visors, backup monitor, generator start switch, step cover, 12 V power outlets , The leveling jacks controls , Overhead fans.. all are controlled by the dash fuse panel box … Thanks for everybody’s efforts and help… Somebody must know where that fuse panel is located please!!!
