Help With Fuse Box

Just got out my camper this summer and a few fuses blew. espically the 10 amp that runs the lights and the 25 amp which i don't know what it does. When i replaced the 25 amp fuse it arced and the trouble light was on. When i replaced the fuse it arched and the trouble light does not work now. Should i be concerned or should i let it go or what please help me !!!!

OK Jake,

Here is the deal. "I have an electrical problem" is not a good way to get help. We don't have a clue what kind of camper you have let alone what your issue might be. Detailed troubleshooting requires detailed information on the problem. Sometimes photos help.

I doubt someone is going to jump right in with "the solution" with so little to work with.

Over...

And yes, you should be concerned about blown fuses and arcing in the panel.

Its possible a mouse used your wiring harness for a snack over the winter. The fuse panel is easy to pull (unplug shore power and disconnect the battery first!) so you can check the wiring behind it. If the problem isn't there you will need to trace the wiring to the fixture the blown fuse protects. Hopefully the short will be easy to find.

With more than one fuse blown and arcing I doubt it will be obvious.
Easy to chew through a wire (stuff don't work). Much harder to remove insulation then get the wire to short to ground. (and it is wire(s) in this case.)
