power outlet cigarette lighter

While tinkering behind dash I happened to hit the back of one of the power outlets/cigarette lighters. Shave checked all of the fuses under the hood- all good and under the dash same thing any help. I have a 05 34n hurricane. A friend of mine said there may be a fuse out by the invertor in the back bedroom? Haven't checked there yet.

Do you remember if this socket was always hot or just when ignition was on? It doesn't sound right that a fuse would be under rear bed for dashboard outlet. I'd check in fuse panel for other accessories like dash heater, wipers, lights, etc.

On my 06 Hurricane 34H on a workhorse chassis, the cigarette lighter fuse is # 13 (20 amp) under the dash behind the Parking brake pedal.

You may have knocked one of the wires off. These wire connectors should be insulated so they should not have been shorted out by you touching them. There should be two connectors, one red (+) and one black (- or ground).
