Chassis Fuse Panel

Can someone direct me to the location of the chassis fuse panel? I have a battery drain which draws the chassis battery down overnight and would like to find the culprit circuit to at least stop the drain until I can get to the repair shop.

This is NOT the house batteries, but the engine battery.

2017 Georgetown 364TS.

Warranty work coming, but have to make through the week before I can get it in the shop.

Thanks for any help.

Their is 2 Ford fuse panels.
One is located to the left of the steering wheel on the fire wall.
The other is in the engine compartment behind the air filter box.
I wouldn't mess with these until you at least done some troubleshooting.

I would first check and see if you left any of the outer compartment lights on. This is the one thing many have accidently left on and didn't notice it.

Now with the engine battery if the ignition is off and all the dash accessories off the engine battery shouldn't even have any load.
Don't forget to check the light inside the engine compartment to the right.

Good luck

Thanks. So, the compartment lights run on the chassis battery and not the house batteries?

I found the fuse panels. Thanks for that feedback.

So, I disconnected the battery entirely. With no load the battery charger is putting charging pretty heavily with not noted improvement in the condition of the charge the battery holds. However, it is about half the charge rate vs. when the battery cables are connected.

So, I noted that my new Prodigy III is hot and reads no trailer connected. However, my tow dolly is connected. I figured maybe something happened to the trailer brakes. Disconnected the trailer. No change. Disconnected the brake controller. No change. Unplugged the brake fuse. No change.

Now I'm stumped. I have pulled each fuse individually and each relay individually with no change in the draw on the battery. The only thing that changes it is actually disconnecting the battery.

To the dealer it goes in a week. Hope it is a quick, simple fix. I've only owned this thing for 3 weeks and am really looking forward to a great spring and summer of camping in it with the family.
