Help locate the 200 amp bar fuse

Lost 12v power, we are good on 50 amps 110. This is our home campground and lost all 12v power at night. after talking with fleetwood tech on phone, he suggested to check the 200 amp bar fuse though he could not tell me exactly where it is located that just it is within 18 inches from the battery.

He suggested looking in the basement where the iinverter is but could not find it nor locate what he was describing as the bar fuse, just that once located I should be able to use my multi meter probes to touch the bare threads and check for voltage. He was trying to see if we could isolate if its the solenoid.

any help appreciated.

Start where the big battery cable connects to the positive terminal of the hosue battery bank. Follow that cable back towards the inverter/charger and you should encounter a fuse or breaker. Most likley a large single fuse

on this unit, the battery closes to the compartment has two of the heavy gauge cables and one thin cable with a small rectangle case connecting to the negative post. The rest of the cables connecting to the remaining posts are single.
the tech mailed me two schematics and its not 100% accurate with my unit, as it doesn't show what that small case connected to the negative post is, and/or if that is the fuse. the case is a couple of inches in length and enclosed held by 2 small screws.

following the wires from the battery does not seem to lead to where the fuse would be located, unless its connected with the parts under the stairs.

The fuses in mine are to the front of the batteries between them and the battery tray. Sorta hard to see.

I have four 6 volts. There is a fuse on the positive cable from each pair.

My batteries (4 six volt) are under the top entry step. The fuses you are referencing are located on a metal rail inside the battery compartment in front of the batteries themselves. Between the batteries and the box. If you get a good light, you can see them. They probably have a rubber cover....Hope this helps a little.
