Fleetwood on XC Chassis Tow Plug Power

Hi.
I know that my 7 way plug is wired for 12v power...and I have read that others have confirmed that power should be present with the key on...so maybe a fuse is out on mine, but I can't seem to find the offender.
Have looked in the BCC, the side pass compartment that has fuses for the other 7way plug functions (tail, stop, turn) and can't identify a power fuse.

If someone can help me with a location, I would be grateful. I need to power my toad.

TIA

Maybe it is, maybe not. Call Fleetwood and ask for a wiring diagram.

I love the helpful comments "Call Fleetwood". I know there is a wire there as it's connected at the plug and runs back into the wire harness.
Thanks Bill.

On the passenger side of coach inside the second bay from the rear there may be black rectangular box about mounted on the back wall in the bay. I believe thatís where youíll find your fuses. Itís a good game of hide n seek!!

Thx...I am aware of the where that fuse box is...with the plug signals....but haven't seen any power fuse in there. I was told it's a 30A fuse. Perhaps it's a lower rating and labeled different than what I'm expecting.

I'll look closer at that box. That's where I went to first. Didn't see what I was looking for. I agree it makes sense that's where it should be.

On my 14 XC chassis the fuse box is on the drivers side. It is a 10A fuse. But still enough amps to keep my car battery from discharging when I pull it.
I installed a small light on the car dash so I know this circuit it working.

Great! Driver's side....where???
Do you recall what the 10A fuse was labeled as?

TIA

Awesome....I must have been looking right past it this whole time.

It's been raining all week so I haven't been out looking closely.

Thanks so much...and for the pic!!

So sad.

No...I've looked through schematics and can't find it either. If there wasn't a 'what looks like a factory wire' there....I wouldn't be on such a quest for the fuse.
Oh well....the last tow for 8 hours I didn't have any trouble with the toad battery.

I'll work on it in the spring.
