1997 National RV Dolphin

Hi, we have a 97 dolphin and no owners manual!

We are needing to know where all of the fuse boxes and breaker pannels are on this thing. We have only found the one under the dash so far, but know that there are many moore!

On my Tradewinds, there is a fuse block behind the panel to the left of the drivers's seat, remove 4 screws. There is another 12V distribution circuit board with many relays and fuses under the cover, remove 2 screws, in the last rear bay, passenger side. And the 117VAC circuit breaker panel is behind the small lower door of the linen cabinet, left side walking rear, in the bedroom. Rook

Here is a link to all the manuals that came with our 1999 Tradwinnds. They may be of some help, but ours is a DP so much of the chassis stuff won't apply.

I am just now seeing this! We found the small house fuse panel next the floor beside the entry door to the bedroom. But we need the big bad fuse and breakers that control the jacks and slide

Mine are circuit breakers on the back side of the 12 VDC fuse panel.

The panel in the bedroom is for the 120 volt breakers. The jacks and slide operate on 12 volt. There is a breaker for the jacks on the back side of the of the 12 volt distribution panel. Mine is in the basement compartment on the right side between the entrance door and front tire. If the breaker it tripped a lever drops down. I attached a schematic of an RV Custom 12 volt panel. If your is made by the them it may help.
