I need help with my fuses

We just bought a 1985 Fleetwood Southwind. The fuse box for the house battery is almost empty and there is no diagram to show what goes where.
I was hoping someone had a picture so I can get everything working properly.
TY in advance

I was able to email Fleetwood and they sent me electrical and plumbing diagrams on our MH. They were very fast to respond. (next day)

I started pulling fuses until I found what I was looking for until they emalied the diagrams

Hope this helps

Welcome to the forum. Keep this site in your favorites list. There is a deep well of knowledge here.


Don't let the lights and complex appearance of this tool scare you. It can inject a tone on the fuse box or any wire you want to trace. Then take the other part and sniff out where it goes. This can save hours of frustration.

The fancy lights on the tester are for checking computer cables etc.

When you own an RV you have to be handy with tools, a multimeter, or a check book. There are no guarantees everything will work throughout a trip. Most likely something will need attention.

Have fun with your new hobby.

Does it indicate the size (amp rating) fuse needed for each slot? If so, just put in the right size fuse and then play around to see what works when that circuit is active.

Fleetwood is good about sending schematics, but I don't know if their records go back to 1985 or not. Doesn't hurt to ask, though. Have the Fleetwood FIN or chassis VIN handy when you call.
