No headlight high beams

I do not have headlight high beams on my 2014 Georgetown 360 motorcoach. When I move the multi headlamp sw to what would be the high beam setting the headlights go dark. Where would the fuse be located? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I've never heard of a separate fuse for high beams and low beams. In my experience, there is one fuse for the headlight circuit, and everything works or it doesn't. It isn't likely that the high beam element is burned out on both headlights - one, maybe, but both? not likely. I think it would more likely be a bad headlight switch.

Almost all newer vehicle have high and low beam relays as well as fuses that are seperate.
I know this is a motor home but may still a place
Apply.

Mike your truck has high and low beam fuses as well as relays.
Not to mention you also have seperate stop/turn and marker for the truck as well as the trailer.

Also I would definitely remove your phone number from your post!

I knew about the separate stop/turn circuits for the truck vs the trailer, but I had no idea about the high / low beams for the headlights. Is that because they got away from the old one-piece sealed beam lights?

Thanks, Ron. Guess this old dog learned something new today.

Easy fix

Thanks for the picture of the fuse panel. I pulled the protective cover for the first time to discover the fuse in slot 35 was missing. Just for S & Grins I installed a 25 amp fuse [all I had] problem fixed the lights work as advertized. Seems someone failed to install a fuse. Easiest fix I accomplished in sometime.
Here again the FR Form saved me a trip to the dealer.
Thanks for the help.
Merry Christmas

I think that the high amp demand for newer vehicle circuitry has forced them to fuse and or relay every single circuit.
We've long since went away from 30 amp alternators!
Volkswagen is putting on 200 + amp alternators!
