15 amp fuse keeps blowing

The #2 15 amp fuse for the kitchen in my 2016 Flagstaff Shamrock keeps blowing when on battery power. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

It would help idpf you posted which Shamrock model you have.
The #2 fuse may vary by model.

Is that for the lights? Did you change the bulbs. Could be that they are double pole and you changed them with a single pole

Does it blow right away as soon as you put a new one in? Or, does it take awhile or only blow when you try to turn on what ever is on that circuit?

Pull fuse out then use voltmeter.


First, check to see if there is 12vdc on one side of the fuse holder, with fuse out of course. Never have meter in resistance mode while looking for voltage source.


If fuse is glowing, blowing when you place a new fuse in then there is obviously a fairly solid ground source on the other side of the fuse holder. If you know what that fuse is for, you can start eliminating things in that circuit until you find the grounded source.



If electricity is not your thing, I would take it to a reputable shop. Maybe someplace like an automotive shop that specializes in car electronics and by that I mean not the dealers.

It might also help if you'd post a pic of the fuses. Especially if there's any kind of label on the panel.

Then you have a "dead short" somewhere in that circuit. Finding it will be a challenge.
