Number 10 says awning, pull that fuse and I would say the awning won't work either.



I could be wrong but give it a whirl.

Hopefully I explained this correctrly.

John, read OldCoot's post above. It's not what fuse is for what that I'm questioning, it's the 15 amp fuses in slots marked as 20's.

A 15a in a slot marked 20a should not bother you at all, it just means the circuit is not drawing over 15a and is not a problem. A problem is when the slot is marked 20a and it keeps blowing a 20a.

Some of you wrote helpful comments a few days ago when I posted questions about blowing fuses on my front jack motor. I was told to replace fuses with resettable breakers and that if fuses on my 3 slides, my awning and my rear stabilizer jacks hadn't already blown, they would. I didn't see any problem in trying to locate 'em before they failed. How silly of me.

I still recommend self resetting circuit breakers

You're speculating here. When you say "Seems like there are only undersized fuses ..." What if there are some "oversized" fuses (20 in a 15 circuit) installed and the 20 doesn't blow when something in the circuit goes bad? That's defeating the purpose of fuses.

I'm with the people here who would get both the correct fuse installed in the correct circuit and the diagram changed/replaced to be correct.

Nothing wrong with it at all if that's what you want to do. I'm just not that inquisitive or energetic enough. I'll wait until something blows. Just too lazy! Heck, they had to beat my butt when I was hatched to make me breathe. Good thing it comes naturally or I'd probably quit that too and make a lot of folks a lot happier!

Kind of hard to understand that attitude coming from a man who worked on complex systems with very close tolerances and specific material requirements.

My trailer is new. I have not exercised each system to its max so I don't know what's broke and what ain't.

More importantly, I'm new here and I've seen the warning to those who are negative and have low post counts. I've tried to heed the warnings but if you guys saw my punch list and you knew how much trouble my dealer has had getting manufacturer support, you might understand why I'm studying things that haven't yet caught fire or exploded.

As I wrote above, I have a service appointment tomorrow and I want to rat out every issue I can before that visit because I don't want to take it back to the dealer before at least a month.

Worry less... camp more. Sounds nice.

Do the right thing and add this to your list for the dealer - someone did this for a reason. I just don't know if the reason is right or wrong.
