2004 Adventurer - Hidden Fuse Locations?

I lost power today on my driver side window, sun visor, defrost fan and power jacks. The emergency brake light will not come on when the brake is set. However the slides will operate.

I found one post that refers to a 15amp fuse that is hard to find under a toe kick under the dash that is tied into the emergency brake . I did observe that the emergency brske light on the dash is not coming on when the brake is set. Yet the slides work but the jacks will not.

Does anyone have any idea where this 15 amp fuse might be? Its not in the normal inside fuse box under the dash. Ive checked all those fuses.

Thanks in advance for any help you might give me

You have lifted the dash up and checked the Ford and Winnebago fuses under there, right?

Yes, that was my first thing to do. Evidently there is another 15amp fuse somewhere buried in the dash area

Great. Some folks don't realize that's where some fuses are.

I need to review the wiring diagrams, but I think those items may be powered by a circuit breaker under the steps. Key power is used to trigger a relay that gets power from under the step.

I do recall there being a random inline fuse under the dash. I want to say that was just for the jacks though. I'll see if I can find that when I look at the diagrams.

EDIT...

Took a quick look. Indeed, there's a 40 amp breaker under the steps that sends power to the Winnebago fuse blocks under the dash. Have you probed those fuses to see if they have power? If the breaker under the step has popped, they won't.

I've exhausted all avenues of finding a blown fuse. I'm currently at Cherry Hill Park in Maryland and have contacted a repairman who is on the way. I'll post what he finds.

So the breakers under the step were OK?

There is a "power mirror relay" that's involved too. Relays have been known to go bad.

I learned a valuable lesson today. I must have on board a volt/ohm meter. It took the tech 5 minutes to find the problem. It was a blown fuse i somehow missed in the fuse block under the dash. I recently had a new sound radio/blue tooth handsfree/backup camera installed and the tech surmised that if i run the effected systems together it may draw enough amps to blow the fuse. So ill get the soundsystem wired to a different fuse.

Thanks for trying to help.
