Dash Fans not working

Our 2004 Bounders overhead fans don't work. There doesn't seem to be power to the switches on the dash. I'm guessing a fuse somewhere but I haven't been able to find one. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Hello, just a little more info: Is this a Workhorse chassis, and are you referring to the defroster fans above the windshield?

Yes it's a Workhorse and the fans are the ones mounted to the overhead tv cabinet.

My Bounder is on a different chassis but did you look for a fuse box around the base of the steering column. The inside of the cover list what the fuses are for.

OK, I had a similar problem on a 2002 Winnebago, which was also on a Workhorse chassis. There should be an under dash fuse box somewhere. On the Winnebago you had to just flip up the dash on the driver side and they were very accessible, don't know about Bounder, but should be about the same. There was a 15A fuse that had blown, it happened twice in 6 years. The fuse was labeled as "radio / access" and worked those fans, as well as the radio, power driver window, and the leveling jacks, so you may want to check if these other items are working. Good luck.

Our dealership was a Fleetwood dealer. We ran into this many times. The fans use a breaker and not a fuse. The breaker is in the Black metal box under the hood on the drivers side. (the battery control center box) There are two breakers on the bottom inside of the box. On the left as you face the box. You will have to look carefully for a reset button. The breaker is usually white and the reset button is black. The button is on the end of the breaker. The reset button is about the size of a wooden match head.

Got to the Bounder today, I think I found the breakers in question, they are OK didn't need reset had power on both terminals on both breakers, still no fans. Any other ideas? Thanks.

If the dash fans were factory installed, they will be black and usually have a fleetwood sticker. If factory, they will be powered from the BCC box. If they were dealer installed they could be powered from the chassis fuse block under the dash. If they are black, check all fuses in the BCC. If chrome,check the chassis fuse block.

Thanks for all your input, I can't find any bad fuses in either box, guess it's time to take it to someone who works on them and has all the wiring diagrams and let them find it.
