1999 Bounder

I was amazed at the number of people who have asked the question, "Where is the fuse box located inside the 1999 Bounder motorhome?" I have questioned my local Fleetwood Dealer and been told, "Yes, Matt. The box is really located on the left side of the steering column under the dash board..!" Since there is no driver's door on my Bounder, it is necessay to remove the driver's seat and rip up the carpeting in the front of the motorhome to get to the fuse box. I cannot believe Fleetwood would not have provided a fairly easy way to access the fuse box.
I plan to trim the carpet around the driver's seat and expose the base so I can get immediate access to the bolts.

Anybody got a better idea?

...........It's under the hood on the driver side, a black box with a lid which has to be removed. No need cutting carpet inside. Good luck,
David G.

Bounder Fuse Box Location

Thanks for the reply. I have found one fuse box under the hood along with a "Battery Control Center", but neither is the box I am looking for. I am told by the Ford manual and by Fleetwood representatives that it is under the dash board along side the steering column. I see a box with lots of wires going in but it doesn't look like a fuse box. And since there is no driver's door, I cannot access it.

Matt: I have a 2000 Bounder and the fuse box is under the instrument panel which you lift up and it is right there with a plastic cover on it... Hope this helps..

This is what my manual says

Fuses for the chassis electrical system are located under the
instrument panel. Additional fuses may be located under the
hood. Others may be found in the 12-volt power leads on the
related equipment and accessories.

Our 1999 34J has the fuse box on the firewall under the instrument panel in the right corner. You need to lift up the instrument panel cover which is on a hinge. Chuck

Fuse box under dash panel

Does any body have a picture of the fuse box cover that is under the dash panel. My motorhome does not have the cover so I don't know what fuse goes to what. I need to know what fuse is for the lights on the holding tanks and lp gauges. My panel does not work now along with my stove light and fan. I am also having problems with my furnace not starting up when I set temp to heat. Both do not turn on. I checked all the fuses under the hood and above the fridge and found none blown. Any help would be great. Thanks Robert Note . I have checked all the fuses under the panel and found all good. But still have no power to the instrument lights or fan over stove.

Here a couple of pics of my battery fuse box underneath my dash of my MH. My dash lifts up and on the left hand side is my fuse box. The 2nd. pic shows it better. It took me the longest time on how to figure how to raise my dash, basically just stumbled across it.

Plus as mentioned a couple of time, I also have the BCC fuses located on the driver's side in the engine compartment. Amusing and yet confusing.

If you look closely at the chassis fuse panel you will see imprinted on the face of the panel "see owners manual for fuse locations" All the things you mention are house fuses not chassis fuses. If you do not have the Ford owners manual, call Ford and they will send you one free.

Have you tried lifting the dash on your Bounder? Most of the Bounders of this period had speedometer clusters that were made to lift up.
if it lifts, you may find the fuse panel there. If not, your fuse panel is on a 6 foot wire lead. It is held down by two 2 1/2 inch phillips head screws. Remove the two screws and move the panel to a better location. I did mine on my 1999 Pace Arrow. I installed a CD changer under my dash and it covered my fuse panel. I moved the panel about two feet to clear the changer. A word of caution: there are two plastic spacers on the screws. You MUST use them in the new installation. If not the screws will crack the panel. Also, do not over tighten.
