You didn't mention what you did to blow it. This is a pretty major thing. It also must have happened in the past if the PO had purchased a spare. This type of fuse is commonly used in boats and my be available at a large marine dealer.

No idea. Driving on a trip north, outside temp 95, feels like 103. AC running off the generator, two grandkids in the back, and the generator stopped. No power to restart it. Checked the fuse and it was not passing current from the shore batteries. The fuse, as you said, is probably used in marine applications. I'll start there. thanks. dan

Not there and have never seen your rig but offer these suggestions:
1. Fuses blow because of Heat, whether from overload or external source.Check and clean the connections to and from the fuse block.
2. Was the block installed at the factory or by the PO? If by the PO check to see whether the starting current for the generator is being routed thru it. It would be marginal for this application especially if you had to grind on it a little bit to get it started.Think partially melted fuse going down the road charging your batteries when it finally lets go.
Best of luck and Canada is a good place to be as the EC of the USA broils.

Never though about heat being an issue, but that was probably it. I suspect the prior owner needed batter replacement and the installer added a fuse into the circuit. Hard to tell by the wiring diagrams. Guess when I spot another Pulse, I'll have to ask to see his battery box.

Have you ever run the camper with the Generator? You stated that you had searched for a transfer switch and not found it. If you have run the camper with the generator and not had to plug in at an alternate location then you have a transfer switch somewhere. If you have not attempted to run with the generator and as you state have no output from the generator at present then I am willing to bet you have an alternate female plug for the power cord somewhere on the rig. I suggest if this is the case that when you carry it to the shop that you have them go over the operation on the system with you. This is basic for your use of the camper.

I bring this up as you are more likely to find a class C without a switch then with one.
most ATF are behind 120 panel,pull out panel look for a junction box on back of panel thats it
