Can anyone help me locate the fuse panel on a 2000 Dutch Star that contains either the fuse or diode that controls the turn signals and hazard lights on the rear of the coach? This motorhome has a Spartan chassis, but so far each place they tell me to look has been bogus.
Thanks,

To; Dhenrybr;

ON my rig the fuse panel is out front, above the generator, on the fire wall.

A 20 amp fuse was used until I wired up my new toad, which had tail lights ,with new bulbs wired direct to motorhome.

On your rig, the fuse set-up should be the same, fuses for left and right signal are next to above mentioned fuse.

Let me know if this info helps.

Good Luck,

PS I had to increase to a 25 amp fuse

I own a 98 Mountainaire on a Spartan chassis. When my rear tail lights went out it turned out to be bad connections at the electrical distribution strip in the engine compartment. From the rear of your coach looking into the engine bay you should see a row of connectors with wires on the right wall just above the engine. Mine are completely rusted out and need to be replaced. This caused my tail lights to be inop. Nemar no longer carries these strips so I am going to check out the local automotive supply shops. I know we have different models and years but maybe they are close enough for Newmar to have used some of the same ideas in both lines.

Good luck,

On my 2000 Dutch Star Spartan / Cummins, there were fuses under the pastic cover over the generator. But there were also fuses for the rear lights in the inverter bay, the bay in front of the batteries. There were black covers over the fuses that had to be snapped off.

Thanks to everyone for your help. After several calls to Newmar who referred me to Spartan, I was getting a lot of misinformation on what I was looking for. After the first response from ajbjrvers, I went back to the generator department and pried the unmarked black covers from three fuse boxes,tested all fuses (they were good) and decided that these were for the front. I then went to the inverter compartment and did the same, finding the 15 amp fuse labeled "stop/turn" bad. Norm Payne was spot on! Thanks to all responders; you all know your stuff; I hope I can return the favor.
