1999 Tradewinds 7370 12V Power Dist. Panel

I took a close look at my panel today (attempting to locate blown fuse). I notice that a small indicator lights when the fuse is filled (or, blown). I checked my user guide to find that is supposed to be a feature on this particular panel. My problem? Not all fuses (when pulled) light the indicator beside the fuse. Aren't they all supposed to work?

Secondly, my 12V outlet beside the driver chair stopped working. At the next campsite, I investigated to find it had come apart after all these years. I took the bezel off and re-screwed the ground base to the outlet and replaced it back in its place. No 12V - figured it was a blown fuse. Started checking all fuses that I could find for a blown one. Found a 5A in the 12V Power Dist. Panel blown. Replaced it - still no power and now my power steps don't work! I'm giving up today. Maybe sometime next week...

(Allright - no laughing now!)

Hi Dick how you guys doing?

To bad this didn't happen at the Orphan rally, we could have found it.

Look at the fuse panel behind the Map pocket just to the left of the Drivers Seat. It's hard to get to because of the seat but remove the four screws holding the map pocket on and it will come off exposing the Freightliner fuse panel.

My dist. panel does the same thing as yours, not all the LED's light when the fuses are blown. I have to remove them one at a time and look at them to find a blown one. It seems none of the panels are wired the same or even like the drawings but they did keep the busses correct. Have a look at the first drawning in the list here https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=ae67fff392766057#cid=AE67FFF392766057&id=AE67 FFF392766057%212755 it's the closest to my panel as I've found.

Good luck.
