What amperage fuses do I need

I am waiting to get possession of my 2019 Coachmen Leprechaun class C motor home. I want to have a couple of spare fuses on hand just in case. Owners manual is pretty slim, does not specify what size fuses are used. Can anyone tell me what size fuses I should have on hand? Thanks in advance!

Are you asking about the house converter 12 volt system fuses, chassis underdash and underhood fuses, or the many other fuses that are hidden in odd places all over the motorhome?

Wild guess is my Sunseeker Ford class C probably has around 100 fuses in it, of all sizes and styles.

The coach portion, not the Ford chassis.

My WFCO Converter/charger has 7-15a, 1-3a, and 2-40a standard blade fuses. I also found the tongue jack has an in-line 30amp fuse. I blew the 30a one while camping a couple of years ago and picked up a big package of them on that trip. When I got home, I bought an 80 piece box on Ebay for under $10 that included several each of 3, 5, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, & 40a fuses. I got it because it it had the 3, 15, and 40 amp fuses.

I'm seeing so many posts like this, where a new owner is trying to buy everything they think they might need BEFORE they even have their RV.
Be patient.
After you get your RV you can easily decide exactly what you need.
Also, be careful buying those huge assortment of fuses (most of which you won't ever use), especially that cheap. You frequently get what you pay for.
In my RV I keep about 4 sizes of quality fuses, as that is all it uses.

I agree, I have owned the same trailer a 2016 Cedar Creek since new in 2015.

Do you know how many 12V fuses I have replaced since new? Zero, that's 0.
I also have had two other 5er's since 2007 and I have never replaced any fuses in those trailers either.

In fact I have only failed one fuse on my tow vehicle since the truck was new in 2008. They just don't fail unless you do something to make them fail!
And in fact if you do need a fuse that needs to be replaced. You can go to the tow vehicle and check the fuse box for an extra fuse. My truck has a couple of extras in the fuse box plus a puller that was original equipment.

Just my opinion.
