Electrical question

All,
I have a 2000 Fleetwood discovery 37v. After my last outing my porch light and the battery lights in the front of the coach are not working. It acts to me like a blown fuse/tripped breaker. I can't find the fuse? Can someone give me direction on where the fuse is? I have checked all the breakers I know of so I am assuming it is a fuse.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

A porch light would be 12 v and on the 'house' batteries. The fuse would be in with the other 'house' functions like furnace, water pump, interior lights, etc. Driving functions are fused in with the 'chassis' batteries, the fuse panel would contain fuses for headlights, wipers, turn signals, dash A/C and heater, etc.

I'm not sure what you mean by "battery lights in the front of the coach" If you're talking about ceiling map lights over driver's station, they might be with the chassis fuses.

Circuit breakers are for 120 volt equipment. Fuses are for all the 12 volt electrical.

I'm not familiar with your layout, but find the fuse box (possibly more than 1).

Also if you have a sales man switch near the entrance, they have been known to fail. Many people, including me, have bi-passed the solenoid.

I am sorry, but you are incorrect on this one. There are 12 volt circuit breakers. Fleetwood uses several in their coaches.

Circuit breakers can be 12 v or 120 v, or more, I did sort of interpret the OP's explanation of what he checked as perhaps as confusion between 120v and 12v circuits.

You guys are right. I am looking for a 12v fuse or breaker. I am not finding fuses for the interior lights, water pump etc. It's definitely my 12v system. I have 4 lights in the front part of the cab that run off battery. The porch light also runs off the 12v. I have found fuses for wipers, headlights and such. These are my chassis as BFlinn stated. I am not finding my house fuses. Any Fleetwood owners that know where this box is hiding? Thanks for the help so far.

Often the house fuse panel will be with your converter/charger. (or inverter/charger) Look under the refrigerator, in cabinets or closets. Usually accessed from inside the RV.

Fleetwood has a 12 volt fuse panel in the same box as the 120 circuit breakers.There is usually a small cover with a thumb screw. Remove the cover and check the fuses. You also have a ECC box with 12 volt fuses. The ECC box is usually under the hood or in a outside compartment.

My 08 Bounder had a small fuse box on the bedroom wall that had those fuses in it.

You are correct. My bad. I interpreted the OP's statement as looking for the 120 breakers for 12 volt lights.
