Hello,
Lowered the drivers side visor with the switch while driving into the afternoon sun and quite unintentionally extended it until it bottomed out. Now both visor's won't operate. Sounds like possibly a fuse blew. Have any of you had this happen? What did you find the problem to be? Could use the help. Thank You, Letsgoagain

In our Coach those fuses are in the bay forward of the driver's side wheel well. I only know this from looking for every other fuse in the coach multiple times... p/s means passenger's side, d/s = driver's side. Hope that helps.

Brenda, of...

We also had a fuse blow on the sunvisors. At the very beginning when we were looking at the coach before we bought it, CheetahGirl and I both saw the visor buttons at the same time and coincidentally we both hit the buttons for each side at the SAME time! They both worked for a split second and then they stopped dead. Blown fuse according to the tech. We had to test drive the coach with the sunvisors wired up so we could see. Sheesh, we both felt like a couple of goofs. My mommy always taught me to never touch things in the store, 'course that probably didn't count.

Did the same thing. Blew the fuse and spent 30 min with tech service to find it. Now we talk if one wants to lower a shade.
I also had the battery switch turned off by the door and that was a one hour conversation in 99 degree heat. Now that is checked all the time.

Letsgoagain.....I had the same problem....blew the fuse everytime I put a little stress on either of the motors. It's a 5 amp fuse (Service bay below driver) and I bumped it to 7.5 amp.....Haven't had an issue since.

Thanks everyone,
I am going out to check for a blown fuse in just a little bit. I will post later if that was indeed the problem.

Allright ! It was the fuse. Also made me realize I didn't have any of the small size fuses that the fuse box requires. I put a spare in place and then went to the local autozone and bought a supply of 5,7.5,10,15,20, 25 and 30 amp fuses. I'm good to go now. Thanks to all.

We've blown the sun visor fuse twice. I thought at first it was because we were lowering/raising both visors at once, but since then we blew a fuse while moving just one. Haven't decided yet what the common factor is. The fuse on our Camelot is located in the compartment forward of the d/s front wheel. If I remember correctly, it is a 5 amp.
