HELP: Fuses?

I have 2 cigarette lighters side by side and I pulled one apart when I removed an FM transmitter. I tried to put it back together but blew the fuse for both lighters. The outside cover says the fuse should be 5 amp or more. I see where both red wires coming from each lighter are connected to a blue wire however I do not see a fuse any where near the blue wire which eventually goes into a harness and from there who knows. I checked the fuse blocks I am aware of but no luck. Do you think the wire is fused in line or do you think it goes to a fuse block. I have a 2004 Scottsdale by Newmar on a Workhorse chassis if any of this makes a difference. Your help will be appreciated. Bruce

If its not located in the fuse panels under your dash opening it maybe in the BIRD location box on fire wall.
There are serveral fuses taped together in the black box.
I beleive there marked AUX POWER BODY BUILDER, 20 AMP.

Thanks for the info. 007. I have checked all the fuses (with a continuity meter) under the dash opening and all were ok. The fuse box on the firewall is outside under the hood and I didn't see an AUX POWER BODY BUILDER 20 amp however I do see an AUX 30 amp.(2) I wouldn't think it would be 30 amp but we'll see. If it it not one of those 30 amps I will check all the rest one at a time. I realize now I should have posted on the Newmar forum.

Hello 007, I found the fuse!!! After checking the fuse block on the outside firewall I went back to the fuses under the dash panel and looking around I found 3 clusters of wires, one with blue wires like the lighters were connected to and it had a 20 amp fuse, blown of course. Put a new fuse in and everything is OK. Thanks for your help. Bruce
