First RV...HELP!

I am new to the RV community and quite frankly, there aren't enough manuels to answer all of the questions! I am having trouble with simple things if anyone can assist. I have a 1990 Rexhall Airex and my fridge and steps stopped working simultaneously. I'm sure its only a fuse, but where the heck is it?? Please help if you have one of these models.

I have to agree, with multiple things quit at the same time Fuses (Or circuit breakers) are suspect #1 on the list.. HOWEVER steps and Fridge.. Should not be on the same battery, let alone the same fuse.

There are a couple of books: The RV owner's Handbook, and The RV Book as I recall.. One is a Woodall's/Good Sam publication and thus sold by Camping world, the other I do not recall the publisher (but I could check easily enough) and is not sold at CW but is sold elsewhere. Both are "Generic" owner's manuals, and do a very good job of describing what they describe.. Written BY RVers for RVers they make more sense than factory manuals in some cases...

I believe there should be a fuse on the back of the fridge. It's a place to start. Worth a check.

#1rule about RV electric systems. Weird, seemingly unrelated electric problems usually mean ground problems

You can assemble the manuals for many of the various systems yourself. The Fridge, Furnace, Water Heater, etc. manuals can usually be found online in PDF format. Examine each system for a tag listing make and model number then start searching.

This link will get you started:

Best of Luck!
