OK, finally found mine.

As you said top row in the upper left corner of the printed circuit board.
Hidden behind a large bundle of wires; not easy to find or change
that 5 amp fuse!

And yes, it is located in position number 58 on my 2006 Diplomat.

I have a lot of 12volt gear I would like to plug in.

Would like to set up maybe 5/6 on the house battery bank that are always on
(not switched)

Would also like to set up another 6/7 on the chassis batteries but switched
thru a add-on dash mounted toggle.

Where is a good spot to find some of this hardware; want good stuff,
not WalMart quality.

Any ideas? Someone have photos of this type setup you have done?

Buzkin, a 5 amp fuse is rather unusual for a power point. Someone probably changed it with whatever they had. A 10-15 is not unusual.

Quick and easy circuit testing using a Logic Probe. Connects to battery, then probe tip indicates High 12v (Red LED) Low Gnd (Green LED) or Open (No LED). So when probing fuses whatever it is on one side, it will be the same on the other side of a good fuse, High-High=Good, Low-Low=Good. Anything else=bad!

If you want to plug in a whole bunch of stuff. I strongly recommend getting away from those unreliable "12 volt accessory outlets" and going with something like Anderson Power Poles.. Way better.. Way Way better.

Now, you can plug in the more common "Accessory outlets" to the power pole connectors and if you have some Device that needs must be plugged in that way.. A screw through the side can keep it from working loose.

West Mountain Radio - Home sells power strips using power poles, wire (10ga) connectors, adapters, everything you need save the screws to mount the power strip with.

Once on that page click on the "RigRunners" link (That's the name of their power strips).

To the O/P. I agree with the person who commented on the 5 amp fuse, 10 is more common.

Home is where I park it!
