Fuse Panel-fuse

My brother-in-law has a 2014 Sabre.
He mentioned to me this weekend he has an odd fuse problem, well odd to me as I do not understand this, I'm not an electician so maybe thats why.

He said every weekend when he comes back to his unit, the HW, Awning and a few lights do not work.

Somehow he has figured out in order to get these items working again, he pulls out the 15A fuse and puts the SAME fuse back in and evrything works as should be.

As I mentioned I'm not an electrician but this doent make sense to me.
Maybe someone can explain this to me and how to remedy this.

The fuse is a 15A, it does not blow. All he does is pull it out and put it back.
Sure it is a quick fix but this is a nuisance but more important something has to be wrong here.

This is a new uint, well last July. I don`t know how long he has been doing this but seems like he`s been doing this for a bit.

Any ideas, advice?

Thanks
John

Gremlins......the only thing I can think of is that the fuse blades are getting oxidized and are not making contact properly....otherwise Gremlins.....

I agree, he's likely disturbing the fuse, reestablishing contact with a loose or dirty connector. It's fine until it gets towed, or the terminal has a chance to rest and break contact.

Luckily the terminal can be tightened up with pliers, be careful but that's what I would do.

I had a similar issue on my 2011 wildcat 32RK. The fuse mount on the circuit card trace was broken, so i moved the circuit down to a spare fuse terminal and has been fine since.
