No Dash lights 02 Sea Breeze 8311 F53

My dash lights on my Sea Breeze 8311 are not working. The headlights and the running lights all work fine. I checked the fuse panel under the hood and all are perfect. I can only find a 6 fuse block panel under the dash and they are all fine. Is there another panel of fuses that I'm missing?

dash lights

You probably already checked the dimmer on the switch panel? I also have seen headlight switches fail. I would probe the wires with a 12v test light

I don't know the specifics for your coach, but there should be a second Ford fuse panel, inside the coach. Look under the dash to the left of the steering wheel for a square panel roughly 6 by 6 inches. According to this link (see pages 4 and 5) from the 2002 Ford Body Builder Layout Book, the instrument panel illumination fuse is #41 on that panel. It's a 10A fuse.

Our cousin stopped by last summer, with a similar problem. Was a wiring problem in a newly installed trailer connection. Found a loose wire, repaired it and all lights worked.

Thanks for the replies. After searching the web for more info. I started off by looking for that additional fuse panel that evaded me. My web search found someone said theirs was in the armrest on the wall. Mine was there as well with the leveler switches. They weren't marked as Mark had indicated but at east I found it. I found a 10 amp fuse that was blown and I assumed that was it. Well it wasn't. Panel lights still weren't working. So I proceeded to take the switch out since I knew I replaced it a couple years ago. Apparently the connector on the dimmer side of the switch fell out and that was the problem. Plugged it back in and I'm back in business.

Thanks for your help.
