Workhorse Ignition Fuse Blowing

I have a 2003 Four Winds Hurricane on a P32 workhorse chassis. On my last trip I was in heavy traffic when I lost all power in my MH. I mean no motor, no steering, no brakes, nothing. Now that was scary to say the least. I was able to get it off to the side of the interstate. I then called for a wrecker to come get me. When the wrecker arrive 3 hours later, the driver found a blown 40 amp ignition fuse. He said this was common on my chassis. He put in a new one and I was back up and running. Has anyone had a problem with this ignition fuse blowing?

Check under the dash next or behind the steering column. There's a connector between the ignition switch and wiring harness. I've seen a number of them that overheat and melt. Perhaps yours also has an issue. If you do a search on the forum for 'Workhorse ignition problem' you'll find many threads on this issue.

Here's one thread with the issue and a PDF file on a relay kit fix.

I just put the workhorse ignition protector kit W8002060 on my MH. I also noticed some wires that were rubbing on the metal cross arm. I put some tape on the wires to keep them from shorting. So now I'll cross my fingers and hope this solves my fuse problem. Thanks for everyone's advise.
