Need fusebox location for '76 Argosy 26'

Hello all,

I am looking for the actual location of the fuse box for a 1976 Argosy 26. I have lost all 12 V power (interior/ceiling lights) and can't seem to figure out where the secret hiding place of the fuse box is.

Thank for any help you may offer.

Welcome to the brotherhood of lost soul...er, I mean, congratulations on getting an Argosy, we've been pleased as punch with ours. Our 12v fuse box was actually inside the little silver gray battery charger/inverter thing in the bathroom under the closet. You have to unscrew one screw, and a small door flips open on the side, revealing the fuseblock. Drove me crazy for a few days looking for it. I eventually replaced the whole unit with a newer one that does a better job of maintaining the batteries, and that required adding a separate 12v fuse block next to the 110 block.

Do you have any pictures to share of your Argosy?

Hope to see you camping out there some day,

Sean Harbour

Behind the Door

If you have the original univolt. At least on mine there is a door on one end of the unit that opens. Mine has knob that you grab and pull the door open. The univolt was originally in the bath closet.

That's great. I had a similar question myself about a week ago before I went on a hunt. I have a center bath with rear twin beds. The breaker was in the nightstand between the twin beds (against aft wall) and the univolt and fuses were under the port side bed.

Geez... I need to start learning the correct description. I assume the door side (aka starboard or the passenger side in the TV) is called the curb side, and the other side (aka port or the drivers side in the RV) is called the street side? Is that correct?

What I'm having trouble with is the "curbside" and "streetside" designations of the trailer.

What side?

Left side = port side = drivers side = street side
Right side = starboard side = passenger side = curb side
Basement? I thought it was "Below" deck.
I find it interesting how some terms used are nautical; ie galley = kitchen; berthing area = bed room; but most people don't use the term "head" for the bath room or "mess" for the eating area. Although the terms "fore" and "aft" are use ocassionally.
I still find myself having to stop and think "Is this the street side"? Especially when I'm "onboard". Or is it "Inside"?

In our Argosy, the Univolt was under a shelf in the bathroom cabinet on the left (street) side of the trailer. Follow the hum...
