Thanks. Now id only we can find out why the diode blew.
I'm unable to find what the diodes serve. They allow DC voltage/amperage to flow one way and not the other.
What I have read they may become hot for some reason and that causes them to blow open. They have something to do with power to the Power Control Module and get power thru one or all of the relays at the bottomof the fuse panel.
Oh well we now know where to look if you lose toad turn signals and brake lights.

I pull a 2010 jeep liberty----- we have a battery disconnect was told it needed it but they did not know why. Well I quit using on short trips, I suspect it may have got a feed back from turn signals with the battery not disconnected.

As a side note it was 101 Monday in Des Moines IA ----- I don't think it will be more than 70 Sat. If you don't like the weather in IA just wait a couple of days.

Folks I was wondering if any of u had a fuse diagram for a 08 Georgetown XL model 359. I saw Iggys post and was hoping it was the same. However, I checked the fuse and it was fine. Sorry I'm having the same issue with the left turn signal on my toad.
Thanks

Did you check the diodes I circled in this picture?
Hopefully you know how to check a diode.
Use multimeter Ohms setting.
You should get continuity one way and switching test leads NO continuity the other.

One fuse will not stop all power to the rear plug....

Had same problem described above, with one addition. The Invisibrake in Jeep wouldn't activate, nor would the Invisbrake dash light in the motorhome light up when MH brake was depressed.

Thought it was a fuse issue-was NOT. To Camping World for help. The ground wire in the plug to motorhome was corroded and dirty at the point where the ground wire attached to the connector pin in the plug. I could not see corrosion, etc. by just looking into the plug. They replaced plug; everything works fine now. If there is a next time, I'll break down the plug and clean before taking it in. Love those "life experiences".

Checked diode it was good then I checked the plug connection in my toad. It was corroded so I cleaned it and of course, it worked. I should have done that first cause the connect has been installed since 04.

Live and learn.

Thanks for your help
