2015 dutch Star 12 volt outlet failure

The "cigarette lighter" outlet, as it used to be know as, in the console beneath the radio no longer works. We use it to power our Garmin GPS. I have viewed all of the Newmar wiring/fuse schematics and haven't found the location. Nothing else appears to be effected. Before I enter the "bowels" behind the dashboard does anyone know where the fuse location is?

My DS is a little older, but the fuses for the dash area are under the access panel in front of the steering wheel. Here's what it looks like.

On our 2015 dsdp 3736 the 20 amp fuse is in the outside compartmant driver side. Had the same problem. Kept blowing the fuse. Sometimes one day sometimes one week. Had Newmar look at this... they replaced the outlet now all is fine. One year + Hope this does not jinx my fuse

Some of the outlets installed were plastic and the center pin could brake from pushing in the plug and would short against the ground side of outlet.
Replace outlet with a metal type outlet.

Thanks for the feedback and you were right the 20 amp fuse is in the driver side compartment.
