Power Reel Fuse

Hello All,

It appears I've lost power to the utilities compartment. I have no power to the power cord reel, the tank monitors, etc.

Does anyone know where a fuse for those items might be?

I've checked the breakers and 12v fuses at the 'panel' location in the bathroom and they are all good.

Unfortunately, I injured my right hand and had some nerve repair surgery so my exploratory capacity is somewhat limited; I'm hopeful someone can point me in the right direction to solve this issue.

Thanks much!

Hello MFortie - Is your cord reel manufactured by Glendinning Products? If so, then I would suspect this is where the failure is. Glendinning had a problem with a few of these reel where one of the electrical slip rings and associated brush "burnt" causing the int interruption of power going through it. I had this problem in my 2010 Newmar Dutch Aire. I contacted Glendinning with this problem after I found out that other Newmar owners were experiencing the same fault. John Glendinning, President, contacted me and sent me a replacement FREE of Cost! I had to install it myself. I have attached the Warning about this for your review, along with a couple of pictures of my reel "internal workings" showing the burnt slip ring and electrical brush.

Best Regards

Mark, I don't know right off hand but you can go to the tech section and look at the wiring diagrams. Alpine Coach - Technical Information
Some power comes from dash panel on passenger side. There's a diagram for the 2000 Alpine you'll have to look and get use to how it's laid out. I'll take a look and see what I see to help.

Mark, its coming off the second fuse down where the washer and dryer is. Its in that line of 12v fuses the second one down. That whole group could be dead, so you have to trace what feeds that. I would say its coming from the Battery compartment. Then you can trace it back. Under the Alpines owners manuals look for 2002 additional misc schematics. I'm not sure reading this where the source is. That's a pretty good size feed that is feeding that so i'm thinking downstairs in the Battery Compartment. Yes it goes to the Battery compartment, I can't read the wire size and the number here but Its in the 2002 Misc Schematics. Sorry I'm repeating myself but i'm looking and writing. You should be on this end the dogs know I've lost it.

Those 12V "auto" fuses on my '03 are fed from the house cutoff switch in the step well. The actual source is the "HWH" mega fuse in the rear service compartment. I'm not sure what WRV did on 2000 but that's the way an '03 is wired. I know because I just experienced an HWH problem that blew that 250 amp fuse at which point I also lost power to those 12V auto fuses in the bathroom cabinet.
