Can't find fuse for leveling system & lighter

I blew the fuse for the dashboard control panel for a Lippert leveling system. It's on a 2004 Forest River Georgetown. The cigarette lighter is also on that same circuit.

I tore everything from the dash to look around inside and I can't find any. I'm expecting to find an inline fuse.

I've checked every other fuse that I found. None were blown.

Anyone know how the system may be wired or fused?

I don't know about your Forest River Georgetown but my coach has 3 12V fuse blocks, (with 9 fuses in each).... in the front run bay behind the hatch below the windshield.
Each of those 27 fuses protects a different 12V circuit in my coach (including the circuits for the leveler control and the in dash cigarette lighter socket).

I found this panel under the steps, added by the coach builder;
And another in the engine compartment from the chassis builder (Ford).

Did you check those fuses with a meter or test light? A visual inspection is not good enough: sometimes a fuse can look good but have a crack that's too small to see. Usually looking at a blown fuse it's obvious, but not always. There's a chance you already found the fuse but didn't realize it.

Solved

I found another fuse panel under the dash. It was pretty tough to reach. I had to remove the seat and still contort myself to get my shoulders and hips into position to reach it. It was a 20 amp fuse. The photo shows it's position with cover removed.

I'd be tempted to look very carefully at the amount of wire leading to that fuse block, to see if it could be moved to a more accessible location.
It's a real ... if you have to remove the seat to change a fuse.

Never assume you've found all the fuses in your coach, I'm at 12 locations and counting.

I agree re locate that back breaker! Should be an easy job.
