Propane Detector Fuse
Hello all -
I just replaced the propane detector in our 2004 Mountain Aire 4301. I couldn't find power at the 2 wires no matter what I did. The manuals all said that there is a fuse; ours "should be" located in the bathroom at the electrical panels. There is a fuse position labeled LP Detector on the panel... BUT it isn't connected to anything so no point in puttinga fuse in an unwired socket.
I heard from another user that Newmar said that there would be an inline fuse running to the detector itself running in the line in the wall behind the detector itself, but I could not find one there, either.
Short version: there is a switch in the front control panel where A/C thermostat, tank levels, AGS system are located, and the switch only says "LP" below it. I had assumed that was an electric valve opening/closing the LP tank like on other rigs that I have had, but I was wrong.
The switch sends power to the LP detector. AH! So - now everything works with new LP detector in place and switch "On". I added a small label below the switch so that it now reads "LP Detector".
Hope this helps someone else so you don't waste time hunting for a fuse that I couldn't find, either.
