Fuse Panel on A122

I haven't seen anything yet on this, so here goes.
Does anyone know what the 6 fuses are on the DC panel in the A122? The 120v panel is marked, but not the DC. Fuse #6, a 20amp, keeps blowing.

Gary my first question is what's not working ?

20 amp is fairly large for most it's in a camper.
Is the converter charging ?

In my 5er there all 15 amp and I have slide outs.

Does it blow as soon as you stick it in ?

12v items include
Water pump
Fridge
Lights
Hw heater on gas
Water pump
Awning
Power jacks
Slides

You don't have some of those items

So let's narrow it down to what's not working

Hi. I think it's the fridge, but it doesn't appear to be working on 110 either. Pump, lights and furnace work. That leaves fridge and ?? (sterio) No awning, power jacks, slides. There is also a red light on constantly with or without a fuse. I had a light bulb moment, with a little help, and pulled individual fuses to see what went off. Found the three. Now I need to get a couple more fuses to test everything else.

Check and make sure that more than one of the Frig opions is not on. Having both the 110VAC and 12VDC on at the time could blow the fuse.

Thank. Only one of the switches is on. I might have had them both on at one time, but that was only after the issues. Think I have the fuses figured out. #6, sterio I think still has the red light. Will work on that.
Thanks folks for the help. That's what this forum is all about.

My only response to that is 'good luck'. Since the person that did the assembly on the 12v stuff might have not done it the same for every trailer, each one may be different
So far I have 1. Water pump. 2. ?? 3. Furnace. 4. Lights. 5. ?? 6. Sterio.

AND today hasn't been fun. 6 hours driving and I find that there is no 12V. No cold fridge, not even any lights!! Then I connect the 'city water' for the first time and flood the place. That #$@$ filter thing came loose!! So, not a happy camper. Another glass of wine will help, though. I do, however, have 110.
In Kaslo, BC for what they call the Sufferfest. Volunteering for a run, XC bike and downhill bike weekend. Distances from 2km to 200km 3 day run.
My A122 is so very, very comfortable. This is the camping life folks!!!!!

There may be a blade type fuze behind the outside (upper?) panel for the refrigerator that has blown.
Or
There is a (30 amp) fuze out front by the propane tanks that connects the battery to the whole system. It has blown on us when we were plugged into the "shore" power and then plugged into the tow vehicle at the same time. We unplug shore power before plugging in the TV for travel. With that fuze blown, could be why you had no lights or 'fridge and the battery will not be charging, so no DC power either.

The 20 amp fuze that you labeled as for the " #6. stereo" probably also runs the microwave and an outlet or two. That would be the main reason for it being 20 amp.

That's all I know for now.

If you are connected to shore power and have the fridge on 12v you will blow fuze's.
