Sure enough, it clicked behind the wall panel in the large storage area under bedroom. He had to remove the entire wall panel to change the fuse. Pretty stupid engineering to put it behind a panel where everything has to be removed. Since this is the 4th time to replace it, we are having an access "door" (piece if paneling) put in by dealer. Why can't all fuses be put in same accessible area? Is that too sensible?
I would love to find a blog for customer input to manufactures, to refer to for help designing a better product for the end user, US.
As a result of our various BAD experiences with factory and dealer short falls, we are making notes in our manuals as to how to find which fuses, and where. Along with notes from others experiences to help us if needed.
We still love our unit and the times we are spending in it.
Hoping to go west once all issues are resolved.

We have the 286rlt too. We love it. Floorplan is exactly what we wanted.
I wouldn't have even thought of needing to replace fuses in the receiver. I don't remember seeing a panel under the large storage area. I guess we better locate it ASAP in case of any future problems. If you ever tough the outside light button on the remote be prepared to know you will not be able to shut it off from the panel in the kitchen. We found we had to turn it off from the receiver again. We were never told we had a remote for the slides or outside light. I happen to find it in the top drawer closest to the door.
