Since my coach used all ATC size blade fuses, it was somewhat of an investment, since they were about 40 fuses and they more expensive, but to me had tremendous benefits of making trouble shooting much easier and quicker.

A short time after installation I had an electrical problem and it turned out to be a blown fuse and was easy to find since one of the Smart Glow fuses was lit up. The interesting part was that without the Smart Glow fuses, the troubleshooting process would have taken much longer, because I found that the circuit fuse had been mis-labeled and the only way I would have found the problem with the conventional ATC fuses was to begin randomly pulling each and every fuse to verify its condition. In this case the added benefit is that since the circuit was mis-labeled, and without the 'Glow when Blown' fuses I likely would have began to needlessly diving deeper into the circuit looking for other problems, all because the fuse originally identified for that circuit would have shown to be OK when I examined it.

I am a full believer in fuses that use the Glow when Blown concept.

Hope this provides some added insight to your question.

Good Luck and Happy RV'g

A quick check on the regular fuse is to touch your test light or meter probe on the little indent on the face of the fuse. Lets you know if the circuit has power or if the fuse is blown without removing.

Rjxj,
The suggestion of a VOM is also a good idea, EXCEPT when you have a compartment as my front run bay that is all made of non conductive material, and does not have a ground in that compartment. So I order to use the VOM, I would have to open the front generator compartment and run an external, temporary 10 jumper wire into that compartment to serve as the ground for the circuit. To further complicate thing, that same compartment has both Chassis battery and Coach battery circuit fuses in it. For me, diagnostics are a lot simpler and faster to just use the glow when blown fuse concept.

Thanks for sharing your comments

Jack

If you've got the solenoids or other components that require 12 v power in that compartment, you've got a ground available. Add a wire to the ground in the compartment light, or section of wire with alligator clips on both ends also can bring a ground from any nearby source to where you need it.
