Should be. Mine is in a little case just beside the battery box. It is in the battery wiring. It is a 30 amp blade fuse.

GofE....you have been a great help. Nice you have the same model, so can tell me some detailed stuff! One last thing. I have not bought my TV yet. Waiting for wife to retire and replace her company car with Jeep Grand Cherokee V6. In the meantime, my nephew has offered his Tacoma for use. He asked me about a brake controller. He tows an older smaller pup, but said I need to get a brake controller for his Tacoma. We are thinking I can move It to the Jeep when we get it. Any thoughts on whether I Need one in the first place, what is a good brand and is it something that could be moved from one vehicle to another?

Yes, a brake controller is a good idea. After all you got a 3800 lb camper behind you. I just got one from my camper dealer and do not not remember the brand. Others here can make a better recommendation. The jeep you are thinking about should come prewired for it. I do not know about how easy it is to move between vehicles. Mine was not too expensive, so just got a new one when I upgraded my TV.

Crusader 270RET

We have the shore power hooked up with the ADCO Cover on the coach set up for the winter. Inside in addition to blowing out the water lines, we also have a radiator type oil/electric heater that stay on low most of the time, not only does it keep everything toasty, but cuts down on the mildew if present also. Batter stays charged and only gets re=charging when it drops in voltage. With nothing running DC wise, the heater should be the only thing running besides the micro wave clock: All the P traps have been " pinked " up as well.

You were a great help before. Have our 277hw out for the second time. Turned on the AC and ....nothing. Appears to have no power to it. I don't have the manual with me, but have checked the circuit breakers by the fridge and the fuses. All seem good. Any other ideas?

I take it you are on shore power and not on battery. Do you have power to the microwave? If not, check the gfi outlet. The gfi is the outlet right above the fuse panel. I tripped that once and found that it cuts off everything that does not run off battery.

If you do have power to the microwave, stupid question but you do have it plugged in on the roof??
