12v fuse panel location.

New RVs with a question.

We retired almost 4 years ago and just bought "Hobby RV".
It is a 2000 Maverick by Georgie Boy a 24 ft Class C built on an E450 frame with only 38,000 miles.
I say "Hobby RV" as it is undergoing some personalization and upgrades.

We just did a 10 day trip from Ga. to Louisiana to visit family for Thanksgiving. I guess I can't complain, from what I read, with 8.7 MPG on I85 and I65. This will be perfect for the two of us, as the plan is short 2-3 day get away trips twice a month.

Question:
Does anyone know the location of the Camper box - 12 volt fuse box?

I found the 110v breakers and the boxes from Ford.

The Maverick owners manual shows the 12v fuse layout on page 14, but not the location.

I contacted Coachman, who after 3 e-mails, said they do not know.
They also do not have the wiring schematics or anything, according to them. Strange.

Look for the end of your shore power cord. Generally it is where the cord comes into the unit

Thanks I have found the 110V breakers at the end of the shore power cord.

They have hidden the 12v auto type fuse panel very well. I downloaded the manual from Coachman that shows the panel, but gives no location.

Coachman says they do not know. I guess there is no money in providing information on products from a company they now own. It looks like they would have gotten the schematics, etc. but they say they do not have them. To me that say a lot about Customer Service.

UPDATE......SUCCESS!

I looked at everything that I had looked at before.
There is a door with a metal grate where the LP furnace is located. Inside there is a black unmarked flat panel that I thought were for furnace controls.

While looking at this area from another angle, from under the bathroom sink with a high powered hand spot light I could see the multi colors of automotive fuses.

I went back to the panel with the grate, in front of the furnace and unsnapped the front cover.
There they are! The inside of the panel cover, even gives the location an amps for each one.

Thanks for all the ideas and replies.
