Need Help with Breakers/Fuses

I have a 2005 Allegro with a 8.1 gas workhorse engine. I pulled a dumb move and high centered my trailer,in return it severed the 7way trailer wire on my trailer. I noticed I had also lost the rear lights on the motorhome. I checked the fuses but all was good. The only lights i had was the emergency flashers on the trailer. The clearance lights and headlights all worked on the motorhome but nothing else. When i arrived back home the engine would not start,out of nowhere the engine started, but when I turned the headlights on the motor died. Does anyone have an idea where to start to fix this issue?

I would check the wiring inside the lft frame rail. Pulling the trailor wiring may have damaged the harness just fwd of the fuel tank. this might cause loss of power to the in tank fuel pump.

Though I do agree with checking the rails. I question if you got ALL the fuses.

three are THREE fuse panels for the chassis.

There is the one over by the parking breake pedal inside.

There is the Battery Control Center

There is the main chassis fuse box. That one can be hard to spot (more in a second)

I screwed up a turn signal modification (Added lights to the mirror arms) and popped both the brake light fuse and the turn signal fuse.. ONE of them was inside, by the parking brake.

The other was under the hood in the main chassis fuse box

Top dead center under the hood it is a black, box, unmarked retangular, around 8 by 10 or 12 as I recall (Size is from memory)

Releases on each side and the cover pulls forward

Fuses and breakers abound inside.
Home is where I park it!

Thanks for everyone's help! I did find a fuse blown and a loose wire in the fuse panel in the engine compartment. It was located on the driverside up top, not easy to see. All is working good now! Headed to the races! Thanks again!
