Fuse Box on 1992 Thor Pinnacle

Hello Everyone! I am a new owner and am getting the RV ready for a camping trip with my grandchildren. Can someone tell me where the fuse box is. I have looked everywhere all to no avail. The windshield wipers stopped working. Thank you in advance for any help you may provide me.

I checked there first as did my mechanic(not RV mechanic though), all to no avail. I even called THOR and the gentleman says he did not know either. I wanted to take grand kids camping but cannot without windshield wipers. Thank you for responding though. I really appreciate it.

Hmmm it's there on my Residency ....... Try taking the screws loose that attach the dash cluster or pod ( Speedo, headlight switch, radio, other dash switches) abd tilt it back, they may be under it. Also check "under the hood".

I have seen one outside under the coach underneath the drivers seat near the master cylinder, but it was an 80's model MH

On my 1993 Pinnacle the main fuse box is accessed through the top of the dashboard on the drivers side. You may have to move/disconnect some of the AC/heater ducting to see it but that is where mine is Problems with the wipers seems to be a reoccurring theme Mine started to turn on by them selves when starting the engine, then(as time went by) they wouldn't shut off. My mechanic said the "Delay/ intermittent" stuff was causing the problem. So they disabled that part and now they work fine. The mechanic said "the company that made that stuff is out of business (also the cruise control) so it can be a nightmare.

Thank you everyone for all your help.I checked everywhere you all told me to but all to no avail. I found a fuse box in the rear above the bed but it appears to be not the one that has the wiper fuse in it. I will go to a RV repair shop to get it resolved. Thanks again for everything and I feel privileged to be a part of this fine group of people. God bless you all!

The one above the bed is for the house system. Please post up where it is once it's found to help other members.

One last place to look, open the hood up front, stick your head in it and look up towards the top of the motorhome up towards where the dash and windshield is, it may be attached to the under side of the dash in the hood compartment.

that particular fuse box is above the bed in the right side storage bin. I am awfully discouraged with this motor home idea. I thought it would be great for the grand kids but it has been a headache and a heartache. in the last week i have backed into a vehicle(1500.00 worth of damage) and just now I went to my daughter house to show it off and severely bent the tie rod on a low tree stump. It got stuck on the stump and had to be dragged off buy a tow truck which in turn caused the transmission fluid to leak out the back profusely. Anyone know where I can get the tie rod for the 1992 thor pinnacle) If not i will take my wife and daughters advice and cut my losses and sell it to a scrap yard and move on to a large tent like they advised me to do in the beginning. I guess you tell i am a little low right now....

Tie rod end will be based on the chassis what is probably a Ford f-53

You just need to be more carefull when you drive it. Be aware of your surroundings, at 15 years old I learned how to drive in a motorhome. Just look out and remember your not driving a Kia. It will get better with time you will survive and thrive and have a great time
