multiple questions.

Hi Folks . I'm new here so please bare with me. Wed of this week we took delivery of a low milage 2008 gulf steam super nova. I have (as of now) two questions. a) I'm blowing fuse that services the bath room lite and fan, this fuse also is for the dinning lite and the small reading lites above couch. Has anyone else had this problem and if so can you direct as to where to start looking?? b) the marker lites on the back of the coach, can you replace the bulbs or do you have to replace the intire lite?? Thanks in advace for any help or direction you might freely give. Looking forward to communicating with the group. Rob and Edna.

Hello Rob and Edna and . We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
Take all of the light bulbs that are on the circuit out of their fixtures and retry the fuse. I have had light bulbs be shorted internally. If the fuse does not blow (turn on all switches) then re-install the bulbs one at a time. When the fuse blows, there is the culprit.
If the fuse still blow with all the light bulbs out you will have to also remove the fan from the circuit. Are you experienced with electricity and 12 volt DC circuitry? If so let us know and we can help you diagnose the problem

blown fuse

First THANKS for the replys. I found the cause of the blown fuse. The main power cable that supply's the power for the slide is routed thru the slide rack and at the exit point the wires have been pinched by wiggleing the wires I found the spark and the fuse popped. Now I have to cut the wires pull them out of the rack repair and feed wires back thru the rack . Seems like a better way would have been to attach wires to a low tension spring so wires would have been keep free of the rack and not been in a position to get pinched . Oh well it's time for some re engineering. Some times you just wonder what were they thinking??? I now question why no wall switches for the over head lites in the kitchen, dinning, living area. If they can put a wall switch in for the bed room why stop there??? Oh well again thanks. Rob.
