12v outlet fuse?

Had to inflate a flat tire today. Used a 12v compressor and connected it to the 12v outlet at the foot of the bed (cord wouldn't reach the cab). Now the 12v outlet doesn't work. Everything else on the coach is fine. Opened the cover; wires are connected; no evidence of damage. Any ideas which fuse is involved? There is an "aux" fuse in the panel at the steps but before I start messing about I thought I'd ask.

Thanks, PC

Get your multi meter out and check both sides of 12v fuses in control center.

What year and model of Solera do you have? How many amps does the compressor take to run? Odds are, you blew a fuse. It would be located in the distribution panel, not the fuses in stepwell.

Thanks, found the bad fuse and replaced it. I had forgotten all about the distribution panel. The compressor is rated at 14 amps. It warns against shutting it on/off before connecting/disconnecting to the valve stem or the fuse will blow.
