Dash air problem

We made a trip to Tucson from Cornville, Az in our "new" 2005 34M DIESEL Bounder to have a sofa installed. On the way home in 102 weather the dash air just stopped. It had been cooling like a champ. We had our cell phones plugged into the dash and noticed they stopped charging as well. We figured they must have tripped a fuse? The visually apparent fuses have been replaced to no avail. We can't find a schematic online or in any literature we have. Is there a hidden or inline fuse we can check? I know I'm not using technically correct terms, but can anyone give me a suggestion....my hubby is crawling end to end silently swearing!!!!

Sounds like the compressor may have seized up causing the fuse to blow. Had this happen when the dryer piled up resulting in desiccant beads through the system. When you find the blown fuse, before you turn on the AC, have your co pilot watch the compressor clutch when you turn on the AC. If the drive belt starts smoking, the compressor is pouched. New compressor, clean out the entire system and new dryer assembly.

Thanks but at this point haven't found the fuse so unable to continue trouble shooting. Have you any ideas as to the fuse location as the 12 v power plug and AC have stopped working?

Not familiar with your Bounder but on mine the fuse is located in a panel under the front hood directly over the generator.

We finally took it in to our friendly diesel guy and he crawled around wriggling things, called and said it was all working just fine....good grief! Going tomorrow to pick her up and wrap that fuse with neon orange tape!!! Thank you for your suggestions!
