Fuse Panel Identification

I have a 1996 Georgie Boy Cruise Master on a Chevrolet P30 chassis.

My fuse panel is worn so I can't read what fuse goes to what. One in particular gets hot and melts the fuse. It is the one with the arrow in the picture, beside the breaker.
If anyone has the same fuse panel and can identify the fuses, I would appreciate it.
Possibly a Georgie Boy Swinger has the same box.
Thanks, Bob

OK , what doesn't work when the fuse is blown ?

JMHO: Looking at the damage to the lower of the two plug locations in the top right hand corner of the fuse box , there is a possibility some one one just moved whatever was plugged in there, to another location just to get something working.
Remove the red wire and see if the fuse still blows.

Does the fuse blow as soon as it's replaced or do you have to turn the key on ?

If the fuse blows , without turning the key on , then the overloaded circuit is direct battery powered , e.g. lights , cigar lighter ( in some set ups) 4 way flasher.
If the key has to be on, then , it could be the gauges as Ronnie posted.
But be aware that a previous owner may have added something to the circuit that shouldn't be on it.

Ronnie, If the writing is still good on your fuse box , maybe posting a photo of it would help Bob.

Picture

I'm not very computer savy, I can not post any pictures, wished I knew how. The lettering is really good on my fuse box so it is easy to see.

Posting photos is covered in the link below . I had to print out the instructions and read through as I posted the first few times.

If you can forward a photo via e mail , send me a PM and we'll exchange e mail addresses and I'll post it from here.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner Ronnie. The fuse turned out to be related to the blower fan. I guess the fuses were just old, and overheated but did not blow, just melted the plastic part of the fuse. Weird!

When the wire or fuse holder melts but the fuse doesn't blow, that means the connection is loose and excessive resistance is building up causing that area to get hot. This needs to be fixed or you could have a fire - or at least it can damage the wire and fuse holder beyond repair.

You should remove the fuse panel (note the two screws holding it to firewall) flip it around to see the backside and locate those wires, then check the wire crimp and condition of the wire. If it is melted you can cut the wire at the back and splice in an in-line fuse to bypass that melted fuse location.
