On the later models, it was located in the electrical panel under the hood, directly in front of the driver.

Open the hood, and on the firewall directly in front of the drivers position, you will see a black box labeled RV-Custom Products Battery Control Center. Open the box and check fuse #9.

Do you see a RED button on the left side of the dash ? They could be added with no power if you don't see a RED button for the heat on the dash close to the MIRROR SWITCH. At least that's where my Ford chassis is. JMHO, good luck.

Power mirrors on 1993 Southwind inop

Laurie, I too own a 1993 Southwind with the Chevy chassis. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how to get my power mirrors working. I have owned this coach for 8 years now so am very familiar with the workings of it. I have checked to main power distribution box that holds many of the fuses as well as the fuse block under the driver's side dash but have not found any blown fuses. The mirror heat switch will not turn on either. It is obvious that there is no power going to the mirror switches, that is a given. I have even swapped out fuses thinking that even though a fuse looks good it may not be, but with no luck. I guess maybe I will try to call Fleetwood and see if they can shed some light on our problem. Have you called them yet? Have you fixed your problem yet? If so, please let me know what you did to get it fixed. If and when I find out how to get this fixed I will post it here. Other than this problem, my RV is great and the engine runs perfect. I have done alot of mods to it such as fabricating my own ram air system to the intake, which helped the engine get more power than I thought possible. I also installed some Hedman headers and a Dynomax X-pipe cross over muffler and true dual exhaust and boy does the 454 run better than ever now. I also use Amsoil in all of my vehicles down to synthetic brake fluid, trans fluid, rear diff fluid, etc.Added a transmission cooler made by B&M and a deep sump trans pan with cooling fins. Also installed a throttle body spacer which added to the low end torque. To some, these mods may sound crazy but believe me, the Banks system has nothing on me here. Fuel mileage is also up quite a bit than before. Sorry for the unrelated comments regarding the mirror problems. Just thought I would add my two cents in while I was on here.
