2005 33 bounder lost power in slide

I have a 2005 fleetwood bounder, I was upgrading the lights to LED with new fixtures. I lost power to all five lights in the slide, can't find a fuse in the box on the dash or in the engine compartment. The odd thing to me is the hot wire is white on these fixtures. but I'm admittedly an electric dummy. Any help?

You need to go to the electrical bay in your coach - the fuse blocks you checked were chassis fuse blocks.

Electrical bay is usually where your power tether is located. You’ll have a breaker panel for 130 volt circuits, and a fuse panel for 12 volt circuits.
Or, it may be under the Engine hood and contains all the coach battery interface circuits along with the emergency start relay.
You coach manual should have a wiring diagram, and if not, you should be able to easily find one to download.

Seems our older coach used white as the 12vdc hot for lighting circuits as well. Don’t know the reasoning as to why.

My 08 Bounder had a small fuse box on the bedroom wall.

My ‘07 Bounder had those fuses in the panel on the main bed pedestal.

Just looked in the “Files” section of IRV2 - there is a wiring diagram for an ‘04 Bounder in there. Maybe not exactly your coach, but probably close enough to give you an idea where to look.

You didn’t by chance reverse your leads feeding the lights when installing the LEDs? LEDs are polarity sensitive.

US1 is right, although not all LED’s are polarity sensitive. And if they were, what are the chances you got 5 wrong?

But check them anyway. And get a voltmeter to probe the sockets to look for 12 volts and polarity. If they are all on the same switch and you had to pull the fixture out for some reason, maybe you tugged a little too hard on some of the wiring.
