Furnace keep blowing fuses

now i moved the camper back to its parking area and went to put the heater back on and now it keeps blowing fuses,

Had a guy here last winter who's furnace was blowing fuses.
He found a mud daubers nest in the blower "squirrel cage".

You said yours worked and you moved it and now it doesn't
work so maybe that's not your problem but it's worth a look.
You should be able to open it up and get a long skinny screwdriver
in there and give the blower a nudge. It should turn effortlessly.

Good luck!

A careful inspection of the wiring may reveal the pinch that is blowing your fuse. Maybe a critter ate the insulation off a wire and after the move it is touching a metal frame.
