In my 2014 Georgetown, 328TS, the fuse box for all interior lights is located near the floor opposite the bed.
However, I have blown a fuse for my (4) outside storage, battery compartment, engine compartment and water/dump hookup. Can someone tell me where that fuse is located?

Can you give us an update?
Did you ever find the blown fuse?
Where was it located?

Yes, I found the fuse for my basement lights. It is in the Battery Control Center box above the coach batteries. I found a one-page schematic with my manual that showed the wiring in the "BCC". There are 6-8 other fuses inside for other things. Of course, there are several in-line fuses above the batteries and in the engine compartment. The only one I have figured out is the 25 amp fuse to the automatic steps.
BTW, I had to pay a service call last weekend because my leveling jacks would not retract. Turns out the circuit breaker to the hydraulic pump had tripped. It is located to the left of the BCC. There is another breaker below it but don't know yet what it goes to. Paid the tech $180 to find the breaker and reset it.
I trying to learn all I can about the electrical systems in the RV but it's not easy. I wish Forest River offered more information.

Yes the diagram shows the details of each fuse in the BCC.

Here is what I have.
The inline fuses from the battery are the Propane detector and the awning motor and the steps.
Al the ones in the box are as it says on the colored diagram.
The large resettable breaker to the left of the BCC will trip usually when your batteries are low and you try to use the pump. Low DC voltage will cause higher than normal amperage and will trip. This is also a way to destroy your pump motor. I only use my hydraulics when I am sure I have well charged batteries or I just plugged into campground power prior to leveling and extending the slides.
Hope this helps you and others here.

Thanks for the info. It probably was due to low battery charge. I also had trouble last weekend with my Onan 5.5 kw generator. We were boondocking at Keeneland race track for Derby day. My generator ran find Thursday and Friday and died Sat morning. After putting gas directly in the carburetor or waiting 2-3 hours and priming for 40 sec, it would run for about 45 min or an hour and then stop again. It had 525 hrs with only oil changes. Took to Cummins-Onan shop Friday and they just changed fuel filter and plugs. Will take in sooner for service next time.
BTW, nice schematic. Where did you get it? With my 2014 Georgetown, I received a 2009 drawing that had been Xeroxed one too many times. See attached.

545 hours and you never changed oil. WOW!
I did my first oil change at 100 hours and will do another at the end of the summer.
You have3 to take care of your toys especially if you boon dock a lot.


The drawing I picked up here in the Georgetown forum.
All you have to is ask and you shall receive.
That's what makes this place so valuable to everyone.

No. I had already had (3) oil changes with a fourth on Friday. Just had not paid attention to other items, but the manual does recommend fuel filter and plugs every 500 hrs.
