F53 lost power to one cigarette lighter

Hello, I have a 2016 F53 motorhome (fr3 32ds) and Iíve lost power to one of the two cigarette lighters. Thereís a USB port in the center between them that has lost power as well. I Changed out fuse number 22 in the power distribution box under the hood Which is supposed to control the cigarette lighter power but it didnít help. Iím a little confused since it is only one side. Any ideas?. Thanks.

I did look at the passenger compartment fuse box but donít say anything that should definitely power it. I did check a few possible fuses in that but they checked out OK

I had the same problem in our 2013 Encounter. I eventually found that there are two 5 amp fuses at the very bottom of the fusebox under the dash on the drivers side. I don't remember the fuse numbers but they were at the very bottom of the box. Yours may be in a different location, but they were not in the engine compartment.

Our 2017 29DS had the same problem but I found that our dogs, we have 3 Weimaraners kept leaning on the plug that sticks out about 4Ē and causing a short which blew the fuse. I found that there is an inline fuse. You can remove the screws on the black dash panel on feel around under the dash to find the holders. I took the dash apart first the positioned the fuse holders so they are easily accessible. Good luck.
