The lights in the bathroom, living room and bedroom all work. Where does this prewired wire get its power? I could splice into the lights, but would rather do it right the first time. Thanks for any info.
Check the fuse box in the distribution panel in the bedroom, it is located next to the breaker box. The prewire should be pulling power from here.

Boy did I have my head up my butt or what?! I can't believe I told you about the circuit breaker for the levelers instead of the fuse next to the batteries for the bunk. Must be lack of.... (I'm not going there)
Very sorry for the misinformation.

We have a 2015 FR3 DS. Is it possible it was built without either a black tank wash out valve or a check valve between the fresh water and city water tanks? I'm sure I'll think of more questions over time.
In 2015 we did add a black tank flush system. The easiest way to tell if your coach has the black tank flush installed from the factory is by checking how many connections you have in your plumbing bay. In this bay you should find a Fresh tank fill, a city water fill, and black tank flush. if you only have two of these three then you do not have the factory installed black tank flush.

Rear camera question. We have a 2016 FR3 30DS with the Pioneer AV system. Is there a way to set rear back up camera to stay on? I would love to keep an "eye" on the toad!

On my 2016 30ds there seem to be fuses located all over, some are located in panels some installed inline.

I try to look for the easy stuff, and fix what I can before bringing it for warranty work, but the lack of information makes trouble shooting difficult.

I have some older schematics from the forum, but if you have any additional drawings electrical and/or any other systems, or additional engineering documents that could be shared it would help all of us, and help reduce FR's warranty costs.

F-53 Manual has all chassis fuses noted. You can find it online.

Yes, that's true. But I think he was asking about the "hidden" in-line fuses that aren't in a fuse block, such as the ones for the slide-outs, the leveling jacks, the overhead bunk, etc. It would be nice to have a list and location map for those.

Ah, got it. I haven't seen anything for that and it would be nice.

On our 2015, there is a power on/off button and I power it on when pulling out. Granted, it switches off when the ignition goes off but I just power it back on. Hopefully things haven't changed that much between the 2015 and 2015 models.
