On a recent 3 month 5800 mile trip I was towed 3 times for a blown 15 amp fuse. This fuse feeds the Park/Neutral and parking brake circuits. Its located on the internal Fuse BLock and Labeled TURN - B/U and protects the "turn Signal Switch, Park/Neutral Position & BU Lamps. When this fuse blows and you stop you cannot move. Engine runs but trans. in neutral and parking brake applied. The reason for the fuse blowning in my case not resolved but the fuse feeds the lighting circuit, including the tow vehicle. It blew without tow connected but any lighting short could cause failure. I carry extra 15 amp fuses. Workhorse was great to respond except was towed once to a non-authorized repair location and had to be towed again. I will provide more info. if anyone interested. Even after this I still like my 2005 W-24 38J......

paged, good info. Is that fuse located in the fuseblock that's found when you lift up the dash?

Does this mean you could not shift tranny out of neutral, and could not release the parking brake? Is your p-brake electronically activated?

Paged,

Here's my similar, but different, story. After filling at a gas station I attempted to start the engine. Turned the key to Start and all the I/P lights and gauges came on but engine did not turn over! A call to CoachNet got me a very experienced-sounding young man who immediately said "Check the CRANK fuse under the front hood." 5 Amp CRANK fuse was blown. Replaced it and all was OK. Got spares and fuse didn't blow again for months. In March it started blowing intermittantly again. Checked wires on steering column - found all OK.

In May had an appointment at Forest City for a variety of repairs. Winnebago worked with WH on fuse problem and traced it to the Park/Neutral switch. They found it wet with trans fluid and said it was shorting out. Replaced P/N switch and has been OK since.

I would think your wiring would be similar to my 38R, but then, again.......? It just sounds so similar to my problem.

Anyone need a supply of 5 Amp mini fuses?
WH covered this under warranty. Good luck.

The fuse is located to the left of the drivers feet by the drivers door on my 38J 2005 Winnebago Adventurer.

troth.... yes the transmission goes to neutral and the auto park is applied when you stop. There is a sensor on the drive shaft that as long as you keep moving the brake will not engauge. The red light for the park brake comes on and if it does you had better find a place to pull over safely. As soon as you stop you go no further. Of course I was in heavy traffic in a small town duing a Lobster fest when it happened......
