12v fuse panel location?

can anyone help me find the connector box/fuse panel for the 12v system in my newly aquired '73 Argosy 24T?
Had all internal 12v stuff working until I went to replace a bad outdoor light fixture, my son thinks he might have grounded the power feed wire. now the wp works and the mid ceiling light & sink light work, but bathroom, reading sofa, and front ceiling lights & outdoor lights don't have feed power......

The fuses will be inside a little door on the univolt. Just plug the unit into 120 VAC and listen for the hum. Once you find the source of the hum that will be the univolt. The door on the end, once opened,will reveal a few holders of glass Buss fuses. Most are 20 AMP.

Smile 12v fuse holder location

Thanks, I know where the Univolt is, ( from the Hummmmmmm, of course) I didn't see a door, but I'll look again tomorrow.

Wahoo, 12v fuse panel!

Brett,
that's a pretty smeaky place to put some fuses, and yet really pretty obvious. I'm just a little reserved when it comes to sticking my fingers in any electrical companant!
2 blow fuses, replaced with 20amp circuit breakers & everything works again. thanks for your help!
tony
