12 Volt System died....Need help!

Hey All,

Here's my problem:

While we were camping this past week in our '68 Overlander a 12volt light fixture shorted and now none of the 12 volt fixtures work.

I checked behind the control panel and found one 40amp fuse, but it did not appear to be blown.

What am I missing?

Are there other fuses? What about the univolt? Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Did you check the fuse with ohm meter to see if you had continuity through the fuse. There should be some other fuses by the univolt or close to it. One of thoses could have blown when your light shorted out. Hope this helps.

I would check the fuses from the univolt, should be around four. The older Univolts also have 2 screw in fuses on the unit itself. The univolt is easy to find when you are plugged into shore power, follow the hum!

My '67 Airstream has three, 12 volt, 20 amp circuit breakers mounted underneath the battery box. Yours might too.
