1. one source, Automotive Circuit Breakers

I have 2, 100 amp as close to the battery as Possible. and 2 60 amp in use on the back side of the drawer on the service side .
I think Most M.H. fires are from electrical shorts. HOT Wires.

and, or Leaking fuel, propane.

airrowan has these same fuses and a propane shut off, detector.
ALL very common on well constructed, well engendered High end Boats.

Working on Engine, transmission Air flow, cooling

New fan relay, temp switch kit from summit racing.

the PO. had unhooked the system and hot wired, bypassed the temp switch in the bottom of the radiator.

$39. as I recall

The original system was powered only when the ignition was on. so when the engine was off the fan would not continue running until cool down. so I hooked the relay Power to the start battery Hot so now We can turn the engine off and the fans will run untill the temp sensor switch turns them off. as I should have been from the beginning. and as some of you have Yours hooked Up.

The ( Fan Relay with thermostat )

Is by Painless performance products.

30103

and the Head openings, Engine Thermostat housing or radiator can be used to mount the temp switch fitting.

Plus I installed a 4 inch marine bilge fan on a manual switch for now, powered off the coach batteries so If I leave it running while at a stop or in a restaurant, shopping ? the start battery will not discharge. This is to cool the area of the top radiator hose, distributor cap area and incoming fuel line on those 100 degree plus days of travel and to keep some air moving at stops.

I will work, tweak this over time and maybe a temp sensor is in order sometime.
