The indicator light is just to show that power has been enabled to the heating pads. It doesn't show when they are working and when they aren't. Most likely the bulb burned out but the circuit is still live. The heating pads will turn on and off from the enbedded t-stats to each heating pad. Mine burned out and I just replaced the switch so the light shows the circuit is turned on.

I found a replacement on ebay. I used the amber color so I could tell the difference at night whether I had the water pump on (red) or the heating pads on (amber). I used the A1-37 Switch.

Most RV Dealers will have this switch. Just be sure not to get a 120 Volt switch. They all look the same but on the side the voltage should read 12 volts.

My Artic Pak kept blowing the fuse and with no real pattern. It tuned out the wiring
that ran under my furnace wore thru and grounded out. It also ruined my
LP gas detector.
Why would you run cables under a furnace?

Good question. I had a circuit go out to the right side of my coach. I literally took it apart trying to find a break in the wire. I opened every junction box I could find and checked all of the connections. I could plug the wires into an extension cord and they worked but the main feed from the panel to a burried in the floor junction box was broke in the box. I could never find it. I ended up running a new feed from the panel to under the bed and made a connection there. Everything works now and I disconnected the old wire and wire nutted it off in a box behind the panel. I was really surprised to find very little clamps holding the wire in place. Considering a residential house doesn't roll down the road but there are codes that require a clamp or staple to hold the wires. Most of what I came across had plenty of slack and could move all over the place. They are now secured after I fixed the broken feed.
We had a similar problem with the coaxial cables from the rear to the front being shorted and one broke somewhere. Ended up running new cables there as well after the dealer said it was fixed and it wasn't.
