Interstate DVD fuse location

Does any body know where the fuse is for the upgraded console DVD player? The unit stoppedworking and it likely is asimple power supply issue -nothing is listed in the manual that I can see.

DVD not working

Turns out that the storage battery discharged, even though the battery disconnect switch was "in use" position (which is supposed to keep the storage battery charged) and the Interstate had land power to it. When the battery was discharged almost all 12V items stopped: the LP gas detector, DVD, propane on/off, generator starter etc. Strangest thing was the monitor panel showed the battery charged - so I never thought twice about it.

I notified Airstream this issue should be stated on their operating manual.

I don't have experience with the Interstates, but usually those panels do show "fully charged" when you're plugged into 120 volt power, because the the system is providing slightly more than the usual voltage in order to charge the battery. You have to be disconnected from shore power to get an accurate reading.
