Nightlights damon astoria do not work

Hallo to you all,
I asked elsewere on the i rv2 forum, but do it again on this astoria forum, because we imported a new to us 2008 damon astorria 3772 pavific edition to Holland recently.
All my nightlights suddenly do not work. I looked in the back of the MH at the house fuse box. All fuses seem oke. Everything else seems to work, accept also the icemaker gets no water.
Does anyone know on which circuit the aislelights or nightlights are secured by fuse?
Would sure sppreciate any suggestions.

I'm going to throw this out there. Ours is a 2011, so the info may not be the same.
This is the way I read it, and could be wrong
Aisle lights power wire are on MLP-14BL and goto the battery control center (BCC) which should be the fuse (position J4-3) for it. This power wire also goto the service lights and map lights. Do these lights work?

Again, may or may not be the same, but may give you a place to start.

Simple check: Carefully remove the switch, do you have power? If yes, fuse is good. Make sure pwr is removed and check both wires on the switch to make sure they are torqued with no corrosion. Swap or replace switch?

My 2010 is the same as the Pacific Edition and the aisle/courtesy lights blow their fuse quite regularly. The fuse is in the Battery control centre located directly under the drivers seat and accessible from the exterior compartment in front of the wheel. This fuse also controls map lights and antenna boost. it is the second from the right on the top row and is a 10 amp. If you have the original owners manual there is low quality image on page 99. It's a tight fit to get the cover off the battery control centre. Be careful not to break the plastic lugs that hold the cover on. As another writer said you need to find out why the fuse blew. I couldn't find a short on mine and assumed that the aisle lights probably got kicked by accident. Good luck!
PS I just noticed that John posted a good image of the BCC much better than in the owners manual. It appears the newer model uses the same BCC

Thank you Britcanuck for your good and for me understandeble explanation. Together with what the others said and also the pictures from John I could solve it. I never would have without your kind help.
So here from Holland : Thank you very much!!

Cabinet hinges

Hi all, does anyone know the make of the cabinet door hinges used in 2010 and earlier Astorias? I have found a Blum and a Glass hinge that are close but not exactly. The hinges in my coach have three screws on the frame side which presumably are for adjustment. I am hesitant to experiment as the frame material is not solid wood and any working of the screws results in a useless hole. I would like to get instructions for adjustment to eliminate experimentation. Some of the frame mountings don't look like the correct hinge has been used and there is already deterioration on the frame. If anyone has had experience with these hinges I would like to hear your success stories and tips. Thanks

Hello all, I have a 2012 Astoria and have a problem with the windshield sun shade not going down. The other night shade works. I can not find a mfg. name on the unit but have done some internet searches and it appears to be a MCD American Solo. I have been in the BCC box and not sure which fuse it is so I have checked them all and they all check good. Does not seem to be a power issue as I also hear a small check coming from the upper left area where the motor and the learning wires are located. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.

Sounds like the lowering setting is outta wack. The beep is the sound waiting for an input. I have attached a MCD setup that I use when mine gets that way. Look around page 8 and do those steps in order. Hope it helps.

My coach is a 2008 Damon Astoria Pacific 2772 model. 39 feet, 340 Cummins with a 6 speed Alllison Transmission. We bought it new and it has less than 18,000 miles on it.
Has anyone had an issue with the dash AC not putting out cold air and the air only comes out the defrost vents. I suspect a blend motor door control or a relay but I don't know where to look to find it.

Nice to know there are still some others out here with a Damon. A1Snowman

Not to sure about this one, but I'll give my version. On ours the system is manufactured by EvansAir Tempcon. Try taking a peek into your battery control center (BCC) for a couple of fuses; heater/ac, vacuum pump. Some vehicles the vacuum to control the flapper.


On our Astoria, under the dash, just to the right of the steering column, the blower box has a couple of electrical actuators. Using a multi meter, check power to these actuators when changing the switch to different positions to see if you get power.


As for the not so cold air, low freon, condenser dirty/clogged, is the condenser frosted over, compressor going bad. If it's realy hot outside, ours don't do that good. We put up a divider. Best I can do on this issue, I'll leave to someone else.

Hi showman
You have the exact same Astoria as I have imported to Holland. I have read on an other forum that the vacuŁmpump operates the flaps to direct the airstream.
But I have not chequed it, so I am just passing through the suggestion.
Hope you find it. Otherwise it can be hot to drive.
Goodluck!!

Thanks for the tips folks. I had not thought of the door operating on vaccume and will check that out. I have had problems with mice eating the insulation on some of my electrical wires. Maybe by the end of this weekend I will have a chance to check out the electrical connections too.
