Help wanted on inline fuses

We have a 2011 Rockwood 8265WS and I am looking for some information on where inline fuses would be located. I have been recovering from recent hip replacement, but am now getting excited about trying to orientate myself on the wiring and plumbing on this fifth wheel. My wife was kind enough to crawl into the pass-thru storage today and unscrew the cover panel so I could get a visual of the water filter canister and plumbing beneath. I noticed an in-line 10 amp fuse going to the pump, which is a good thing, but it made me wonder if there are other in-line fuses that I should be familiar with on this unit. If any of you that have this unit or the Flagstaff 8526RLWS and could educate me on the location of other fuses I would appreciate it. Also the canister mounting for the water filter seems somewhat flimsy. Have any of you had any difficulties with removing the canister? Any information is appreciated. Larry.

Oh yea, baby!

OK the first ones I had to find were the 3 30 amp fuses hidden behind the battery box in the front storage area.

2 are for the main slides and one is for the front landing gear.

then I found several inline fuses of various ratings located BEHIND the Power panel since all the front circuits were full.

I have been trying to get a schematic for 2 years.
I hope you have better luck.

Thanks Lou, that is what I was hoping for. Have you had any problems with blown fuses on your fifth wheel? Larry.

Yes, that is why my first thing was finding the landing gear fuse.

It blew every time they went up and every time they went down.

I installed a 30 amp auto-reset type.

Then I had a slide stick to the wall (ice) and blew that fuse. Now all the "hidden" fuses are auto resetting types.
