You might try unplugging the connector on the back of both headlamps and try turning on the high beams. If the fuse still blows, something has tangled with the cable between one or the other plug and the fuse that is blowing. If it does not blow, try re-connecting first one and then the other to see which lamp is causing it to blow, and you'll know which lamp needs to be replaced.

You don't say what year your coach is, so don't know where your fuses might be, or what access you might have to the back of the headlight modules.

A few years ago I had exactly the same problem.

Can't remember exactly what it was, but I had removed and replaced several relays on the main board below the driver window (I thought one was blown) and used what was called the "spare relay". This is what caused the problem, the "spare relay" is actually used to control the Canadian version of the '09 Camelot which has daytime running lights.

So if you have been messing with the relays this may be the source of the problem. Just something to think about.....
