YOu should keep up with the threads you have already started rather than start a new one each day.

Got to thinking of where the fuse was located. Went out and looked, in the coach fuse listing there is one marked bedroom, bath lights & fan, it is #3 on our unit. Would recommend you replace it with a known good one. The fuse box is located in the front electrical bay on the divers side. You could also measure the voltage to the fuse to make sure you are getting power to the box.

This actually started on IRV2 when the OP asked same thing there.
no3putt gave him some advise there, but no feedback from the OP.
Then the OP posts same thing 2 days in a row on this forum.
So this is actually the 3rd identical thread with no return from the OP.

I was just suggesting that sticking with one thread and getting feedback would be ideal in helping to figure out the issue.

Dan I saw that also and it is a little irritating when a question is asked and the OP never returns. Bob if you are out there how about a friendly introduction and we will welcome you with open arms. I'm not trying to discourage you from posting just join in the fun.

The fuse blocks in my 08 have an led that lights if the fuse is open. Sounds like all bath lights were on and and both fans were on high. Been there, done that.

12 lights out

One other thing that just came to mind, is the type of fuse to us. don't use fuses that are made in china like the ones they sell in harbor freight. Reason being the blades are to thin and they will not fit right in the fuse hold they us in out Motor Homes, you will wind up with a intermittent connection. I ran in to this problem our coach, I would up pitech the one from HF and bout some made in USA from autozone & PEP boys.

Post police I would probably make a good one.

What time is it in Jacksonville Hawaii anyway?

BTW, Bob posted on the other forum that he found the fuse based on what no3putt told him. All is well...

How many places in Hawaii could you take a 40 foot RV? Wonder if they charge extra to ship it there?

Bob that's good news. It sounds like a dangerous problem and glad it didn't cause a fire.
Welcome to the forum and I would love to hear about RVing in Hawaii. I think you are the first one I have heard of from that beautiful state.

X2!! Also, that was a good find with the connector. Could have been a bigger problem if not fixed.

Bob, you did not break any rules.
The guys were really giving ME a hard time because I sounded like I might have been getting onto you.

I didn't mean to. I think most would agree my advice was good, but so short it sounded bad. I should have said something like:
"If you post your issue only once, you will be able to easily keep up with the people trying to help you. And you will get lots of help from the FR Berkshire family on here shortly".

BTW, even though you have found your problem, please hang around. I'm pretty new myself and trying to learn as much as I can about my rig before something goes wrong.
