Secret fuses

Many have responded to SailDJ's post about hidden fuses on our Monaco coaches. So, as not to steal his thread, let's list our hidden finds, along with the year and model of our Monaco. I'm sure it will help a lot of folks.

On my 08 Camelot PDQ, I found a controller under the floor of the left rear closet, behind the propane detector. Upon futher research, I found it was the rear slide controller, with a 5 amp fuse and 20 amp circuit breaker. As there was plenty of excess wire to it, I moved it right behind the propane detector so I could gain access with out having to disassemble the closet. Just remove the two screws holding the detector in, pull the detector out, and reach in to change the fuse on the controller.

magnadyne radio

i found a 15 amp fuse that plugs into the back of the magnadyne radio .so i guess if your radio stops working and you checked the fuse in the main fuse panel pop the radio out and check this fuse.

by the way happycarz,what made you rip the floor off the bottom of the closet?

Moving this from another thread:

Yesterday I was exploring under the panel above the speedometer and found at least two blade fuses. I have no idea what they are for (yet), but if this is typical I can see why it could be VERY hard finding a fuse if one blows....

At least on my old Travel Supreme they were all in several panels and marked.

My propane detector face plate was loose, due to one of those Monaco "air screws." So I removed it and saw this big void behind it, and shined my light in there. After seeing a unidentified object in there, I stuck my hand in there with a digital camera. After seeing the picture, I was really curious and took the floor off the closet. Thankfully the wires were labeled and the mystery was solved.
And finally I sucured the detector faceplate.
Who says I'm ADD!

On my 05 Dynasty Diamond IV floor plan ... I have found

1.) Door bell (located in cabinet under sink by the shower) has a feed from adjacent light switches with an inline fuse.

2.) Under the bed at the screwed down panel at the head board is a control panel for the electric slide motor with a fuse.

3.) In the dash... more aux and inline fuses to shake a stick at

It's a strategy between the manufacturers and dealers to encourage owners to take their coaches into the dealers to increase the dealers profits. LOL
