I have a 2000 Alpine 38ft that has no power to the driver's seat. I have looked in the manual and at places in the motor home where the fuse might be hidden with no luck. Please let me know if you know where the fuse is located!

Did you look behind the panel in front of the co-pilot's seat below the dash?

Just had that happen to my seat and it was a disconnect where the wires in to the seat are spliced. I only found it by flexing the connectors. In our case the wires were in a sleeve.

Good hunting,

Sully

Thanks for the ideas. We were taking the seat out to recover the floor and there was a spark when we disconnected the power wire. So, I am sure it is a fuse. Some time back I shorted the passenger side seat wiring and found the fuse in the battery compartment. You can bet that wasn't in the manual.

CHECK THE TWO FUSES IN THE TOP OF THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT.

Sully, you were right, the wiring was loose under the seat, hooked it up correctly and the seat works! The fuse I found in the battery compartment handles both seats.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
