Every time I turn the key on, it blows the 7.5 amp fuse in the left front main wiring panel. ordered and installed new leveling key pad, but still have the same problem. Any suggestions?

Have you contacted the chassis manufacturer; Spartan, Freightliner; for wiring diagrams. Who sudjested the key pad ? On my old coach the air leveling, suspension, is all automatic, only key pad is on the hydraulic leveling system, and I didn't think those compomants had changed too much.

The mfg of the chasis is roadmaster wich in turn is made by monaco, some of monacos coaches came with air, hyraulic and even both types of leveling systems. What is the serial # of the coach so I can pull your spec sheet in the morning, does the fuse blow with the touch pad, disconnected and what is the fuse location (ex. F6, F7.......)

I am assuming you are talking about the fuse in the hwh control box. If it is the 7.5amp travel fuse on the large board (motherboard) the board is bad, you can send the whole box to them and they will repair it, not sure of cost off hand. Just unplug and dismount box, If the fuse is on 1 of the smaller boards then you have a bad valve on 1 of the travel manifolds. Possibility of a pinched or damaged harness as well. !!!!!!! I strongly reccomend you do not get under any air ride coach without properly supporting the frame first!!!!!!!!! That does not mean wood blocks or hydraulic leveling jacks. Either a pit, properly rated lift or jack and jackstand will be needed to access travel valves or harnesses.hope this helps

Thanks for your response. The seriel # of my coach is 1RFC9564351034289. The box I am referring to is on the left front corner in the main control panel. It is about a foot square and two layers thick. The bottom layer has a glass where you can look through it. The fuse that is blowing is up in the second layer of this panel. It has a 15 amp on one side and a 5 amp on the other with the 7.5 in the middle. Anytime I turn the key on the fuse blows.

Your welcome, sounds like you've got a bad board. Call Hwh to verify (800)321-3494. That is the Vin# for your coach, the serial # should be on a blue decal on the outside of the coach next to the entry door, or it will be on the coach id plate on the wall next to or just behind drivers seat, dont really need at this point but if you ever call monac makes things easier.

rv, guru

My shop mechanic found a relay in the mother board that had shorted out internally. He replaced this relay and now it doesn't blow the fuse anymore, but now the control panel by the driver's seat doesn't light up.
It doesn't appear to have any power. Could there be a fuse or another relay that might cause this?

Did it light up before he replced relay or at least flash before fuse blew? If you removed the box for repair make sure all pins are tight not bent in any of the plugs. Here is the link to the hwh service manuals it shows you some wiring and plug diagrams.

If it were me it would be at hwh being fixed.
