Fuse box location

Where is the fuze box on a 1990 Coachmen with a Chevrolet 454 Chassis?
I can only see one thing under the dash that 'might' be it, but it is bolted
in with 3 large screws and is in a metal container. Is that it? I've never
seen one completely contained this way. I haven't taken it all the way
out yet. Located just to the left of the brake pedal under the dash.

Anyone know?

What fuses are you looking for? Chassis or coach? That will help us to help you. Chassis fuses on most GM chassis, Your's should be to the left of the brake pedal under the dash for some as well as mid way under the dash for some. More information would be helpful.

Know what your talking about. I've been a little fuzzy on the location of the fuse box in my RV's at times.

If for the chassis, it should be under the dash to the left of the brake pedal and slightly up from that. My p-30 has it that way. yours should too. Mine is a Coachmen President.

Hey, thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I've had several RV's before but this is the first class A that I've had to check out the fuze box on. Yep, I'm talking
about the chassis.........but as you know the coach builder decides where to
put all the stuff. Under the dash on the drivers side straight up on the left of
the brake pedal is a metal box that can be removed with 3 bolts. Unless there
is a way this thing can be removed from the metal container without actually
removing the bolts and container also............I don't know what else this could
be. I've never encountered a fuze box like this..........you can't see any fuzes
on the outside.....................guess I'll just have to bring in on down to the
floorboard and see what it is. I just thought maybe I had the wrong thing.
Has anyone removed one like this before in a silver metal container?

That metal box" sounds like it could be the computer module.

I had a friend who had a 90 P-30 and it had throttle body fuel injection in it. but it had a 400 turbo trans in it as well. I think they started to use the 4L80 or L85 in 93 or 94. As to that box, it could be the brain box but it could have been something that the last owner had put in himself for whatever reason. If it isn't in the "metal box" try maybe in or around the passenger side of the dash "under it". Thats about the only other place i could think of where it could be. My old trooper had its fuse box under the hood but i wouldn't think that they would have used something like that on a motorhome. It was on the drivers side on that old truck. Check it out, Dan

No fuel injection, so I don't think it should have a computer either Senior Chief.
By the way I'm a retired Senior Chief Yeoman. Quit in 1977 after 22 yrs.

Just want to thank everyone for your input. As a new member and my first
inquiry the results were pretty good considering all the RV's out there. So to
everyone that helped me, if I failed to thank you, I want to thank you now and
I think I'll just close the thread in a couple days. I hope to find it today.
Thanks from an ole Senior Chief Yeoman, U.S. Navy, Retired.
