Drivers seat

Does anyone know where the fuse is on the drivers seat of a 2005 Alpine Coach

You don't say why you need to find a fuse for the seat but I have to assume it is because the power seat quit working. The 12v house power fuses are in the panel in the toilet room. I don't recall a fuse labeled specifically "drivers seat". If your power seat quit working I would make sure the connector that plugs in behind the switches didn't come loose.

….suspect seat power source varies by year and model but don't believe they have dedicated fuses in the bathroom 12v main fuses box....so try front cap bulk head, area around house bat kill switch, and the ceiling of the battery compartment....again, 2005 and newer coaches might be different?????
PS--assume you have confirmed no power at the seat thru-floor cable?

We have a 2000 Alpine so this may not be applicable but the driver's seat at one time didn't have power. I found that the power was getting to the passenger seat. I also found that the connectors for the driver's seat were connected together with the passenger seat. Redid the connections and then had power for the driver's side.

Front VMM outputs 16 & 17 indicate front seat power. Attached photo is from our 2005, chassis battery switch closed, plugged into 50A outlet, no key in the ignition, both front seats operate properly. I do not see an inline fuse in the wiring under the seat.

Perhaps a VMM reset will solve the problem. Or there may be a bad connection under the drivers seat.

Does the passenger seat operate properly?

I found the fix, (many others had the issue), via "f104" search to be the orange seat power wire pulled from the white chassis feed wire; connected inside a Velcro wrap, aft underseat.

They connect via crimp connector, poorly done. I was able to reinsert it and use a crimping tool to pinch it firmly; voila, seat works!

Never found any VANSCO lights or fuses; both seats operate, regardless of IGN switch.

I would start by shutting down all power, house and main battery switch. Wait a few minutes and power up again. (Reboot).

The seat has buttons on it to go backwards and forward. We bought MH used and it never worked. Thought I would put question out to others before I start looking in wrong direction
