LP detector without power

My 2015 Berk 38-RB's LP detector is not getting power, so the electronic propane shutoff is engaged and no propane to the coach.
Any idea what electrical link or fuse can trip or blow and shut down the LP detector?
Everything else seems to be working normally.
Thanks in advance.

I have seen this discussed before by several others. Some think there is an inline fuse somewhere. I do not recall anyone ever locating it. I think they bypassed the shutoff at the Propane tank. You may try a search on the topic..

If you have other 12 volt problems.



If you have seen it press the little black button.

We asked Randy at FR and they were not sure where the fuse is in our Berkshire.

Could be the same. The fuse in my Georgetown is directly off the battery via its connection to the battery control center. It's a 5 amp fuse. Check your coach battery install area.

Sure would be nice if we had access to wiring schematics for floor plans that we own. My previous Tiffin Allegro Bus supplied such documents as part of the owners packet made servicing a lot simpler.

Look for a 5 amp fuse in a house battery compartment that's where I found mine

My Georgetown's fuse is directly behind the LP detector. It can be accessed by removing detector or removing drawer of cabinet the detector is mounted on. Good Luck!

Found it!! It's in the compartment with the shore power cord and the inverter. Located on the wall to the left of the the inverter. A new 5A fuse and all is well with the LP detector and propane through the coach. Thanks for the ideas gents.
Happy Camping!
Ben
