Dash fans not working - where is the in line fuse?

I have a 2003 Four Winds Hurricane.

I blew a fuse for the drivers and passenger side fans that is powered by the rocker switch on the dash.

I have checked all three fuse panels (12 volt in rear, fuse panel under drivers seat, and fuse panel by motor) and there is no fuse for the dash fans.

That being said , I assume it must be an in-line fuse. Can someone confirm where this is located?

Maybe you can remove the dash access cover and follow the wiring?

Do you have the coach’s wiring diagrams? Assuming your talking of fans added by the coach builder, then you will need their wiring diagrams to give a clue as to where to look.

Where can I find a wiring diagram for a 2003 four winds hurricane?

Sorry - you didn’t indicate if you had them or not.

I just did a little snooping around and didn’t find them either (I had to do the same for our new to us ‘02 GB Landau).

As I was looking it hit me that it may be easier to just get a wire chaser - you inject a signal at one point then follow the wire to where it goes using a receiver. They sell them at HD or Lowe’s, Amazon.

But maybe to help some - On our coach, looking at the wiring diagram, driver and dash fans mounted overhead on the headache rack are powered from a switch on the left side of the dash panel with coach and chassis related switches (gen start, headlights, fog lights, etc.).
Was surprised to see power for those fans comes from the chassis battery after going through a 175 amp circuit breaker, thru an “Ignition relay” (which is energized by the ignition key being on), then a 20 amp circuit breaker. Not sure if those CB’s are auto or manual reset, but they are located in the main coach electrical 12v battery control center in the front of the coach.

Hopes that gives you some help.
