The motor home alone, does not blow any fuses.
The jeep is wired separate from the jeep wiring, 4 wires, separate blubs and a good ground and checks out fine, no shorts and everything works and as I said, I have pulled this toad 40,000 miles behind other motor homes with no problems.
Anyone got a suggestion for where I should look?

First let me say WELCOME to iRV2.com, and the WBGO forum. Suggest you also visit the Workhorse CHASSIS forum here too.
I'm ASSUMING that the fuses that are "blowing" are on the coach and not the toad, since you say the Jeep's OE systems are not affected. If that is correct, I'm betting you have a loose connection in one of the umbilical cord's connections. Seems to me the cord has to be suspect because you stated the fuses don't blow when not towing. You should also take a close look at the coach receptacle's connections, IF you are plugging into that to power the toad lights.
Loose connections / electrical shorts can be hard to find, but look closely for a wire terminal in one of the plug connections that is loose or may have a few strands of wire touching "another" terminal. Good luck, and again WELCOME.
