WRL5774, welcome to IRV2 and Alpine ownership. You will find lots of information here on IRV2, just use the search function at the top of the forum, if you can not find an answer ask here on the forum.
Starting in 2004 WRV did away with most chassis fuses when they started using the Vansco units (there is one in "the stuff behind the panel in front of the passenger seat" as well as in the battery bay. You did not say what your specific problem is, but the UNIVERSAL first step, and a lot of times the last step, is to reboot the Vanscos. That is done by disconnecting the batteries by throwing both the chassis (located in the battery compartment) and the house (located on the right as you enter the coach) disconnects. Leave them off for about 30 seconds then turn them on, the order does not matter. As these units boot up they talk to each other then activate the PDU, next to the Vanscos. The PDU's are the "fuses/circuit breakers" for most things on the coach. Once you have everything operation properly it is wise to take a photograph of the both the Vanscos and the PDU's as a baseline in the future. You can find more information in the tech library, go to the sticky above "Alpine tech library - for real".
If this does not fix your problems please respond with your symptoms.
If you are not already a member, you should join ACA (Alpine Coach Association) and since you are in Michigan, ACE (Alpine Coach East). If you are not aware, FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association) is having the summer family reunion in Springfield, Massachusetts August 3-6, there will be 5 or 6 Alpines in attendance. If you want more information about any of the above PM (Private Message) me.
