1999 Fleetwood Jamboree Fuse Box

Hi, I have a 1999 Fleetwood Jamboree and looking for the Fuse Box.

My problem: half the inside lights work, and the manual doesn’t provide.

Ok , we have someplace to start .
The 12v fuse panel should be behind a metal panel / cover near the floor on the side of one of the dinette seats or nearby .
Pull the bottom away , it's secured by Velcro , and lift up. The right side is 12v and has the push in blade type fuses . On the back of the cover should be the fuse box schematic showing each circuit.
Let us know how it goes.

Found it, very small box.

The fuses look good, except the fuse for:

Front
Ent.
Center

It has it as 7.5, but the fuse won’t pop into place. Does this mean I need a new fuse box?

Now the work starts .
How did the blades on the blown fuse look when you pulled it out ? Was it burnt or bent ? How difficult was it to remove ?
Do you have a volt meter or 12v test lamp ?
Check the fuse holder to confirm power , it will only be one side that's hot.
Inspect with a flash light the tabs inside the fuse holder . See if they are closed tight or bent over . Don't use a screw driver to explore or straighten anything unless you disconnect the battery and confirm shore power is unplugged.
The only things that would prevent being able to plug in the fuse is either a blade broke or burnt off and is stuck in the holder , or one or both of the tabs could be bent.
Either case shouldn't require replacing the fuse box.
Good luck.

Found out why fuse won’t insert.

On each fuse slot, on the left side of each, there is a gold clasp that secures the fuse. This one is missing it.

How comfortable are you working on 12v circuits ? You don't have to worry about electrocution , just making a big spark if a live circuit gets grounded.

If one of the clips / gold clasp is missing , you need to pull the front cover off the fuse box. In the box you will find a loose wire with possibly the clip still attached.

Before opening the fuse box always disconnect all power .

The clip may snap back into the fuse holder . If that's not possible , you may be able to replace the entire fuse assembly . NAPA Auto or an Auto Electric Shop may sell a replacement . Other DIY option is to buy an inline fuse holder and splice it in the circuit wires behind the fuse box panel and run the holder to out side the fuse box behind the fuse box panel cover.

The best option is replace the entire Fuse Box and at the same time upgrade the 12v Converter / Battery Charger . Your batteries will thank you ....

Just keep repeating , RVing is Fun ..........

You have been so great helping.

Got the box off the wall, but there seem to be no additional wires to plug back into the slot. But the fuse panel shows this slot to be correct.

Was so excited I was done - not! Lol

Happy to help , returning the favor for all the help this forum and members have done for me.

There should be 2 wires to every fuse , the supply side and the load side . When you looked in the box were there any wires going to that fuse ? Are the fuses numbered on the fuse panel ?
You mention there was a blown fuse that you removed , something doesn't sound right .
Can you post a photo of the inside of the fuse box ? It might help with the diagnosis .

Couldn’t locate additional wires that could go into the empty slot.

Attached 2 pics

Several owners of (Brand Unknown) have found a wire splice behind the CONVERTER on (floor?) where one of the three wires had pulled out/ come out of the splice? This was where power split to go forward and rear.

Nope, no additional wires coming in. I’m surprised it would be listed on the fuse box diagram, but no additional wires.

Not even sure that would fix 1/2 12v ceiling lights that are out.
