Fuses for Electric cord reel or water hose reel, Where?

I am getting ready to install a macerator pump in my water bay and wish to get the 12v power from one of the subject reels. I have to know where the fuses are for these reels so if I tie into one and blow a fuse I will know where the fuse is. I likely will use the electric cord reel as it's motor may be fused heavier. THANKS A LOT in advance for this info. I looked and did not find these fuses.

Do you have a plastic panel held in with velcro behind the power reel?

I have no cover but a panel behind the electric reel. I will look there for either a fuse or a connection point to heavy 12V that I can attach my fused hot wire to the macerator. THANKS

Just installed a water reel. Tap the power from your fuze box within your Shore power compartment (should be located behind your power cord). There are empty slot for expansions, just know the right size fuze you need to protect for your 12v system.

On our 2013 DS, the fuse is located on a panel in the rear of the power bay, behind a plastic panel

Sidewinder4, Yes I used a spare fuse position back behind the cord reel. I hadn't looked back there lately. Thanks All

"tednruthy".....The photo below is of the power bay and the fuses and circuit breakers behind it.

In the upper left is a fuse panel that has a couple of spare fuse slots. Along the bottom are the circuit breakers for the power cord reel. If you short something out, it will just trip the circuit breaker and reset.
