2009 International FB LP detector fuse location??

Anyone know where the fuse for the LP gas detector is in a 2009 International FB? Had to replace the detector and somehow popped the fuse. It's not within 3 ft of the detector where the 2 wires disappear in a large wiring loom.

THANKS for any help you can provide.

This is one of a couple items that is always powered when everything else is shut off. Without seeing a schematic, could it have internal fuse protection, within the unit itself? Is there possibly a reset button?

no reset at all. I've called Jackson Center and haven't heard back from them. The guy said most of the in-line suses are right behind the detector. Told him there wasn't any in-line fuse holder for 3 ft when the wires go into a big wire bundle heading toward the front. So many places to look and some would take a contortionist to get to.

On my 2013 25FB twin, the fuse is on the other end. It's just a few inches from the use/store relay (under the bed in the front curbside corner). It's a glass fuse in an inline holder. It's the only fuse in that neighborhood.

Yes, look near the use/store switch as it gets power from the batteries directly and should be fused at that end.

Look next to the 12v DC bus bar on the CB panel. It will probably be a fuse holder connected to a wire the same color as the wire coming from the detector.

Finally found the fuse location. It is in the very front corner curbside. It was extremely hard to reach. We have the queen bed which really restricts access from inside. The only outside access was thru the outside storage compartment door. Being 250 lbs, it was hard to get both arms and upper torso in the compartment. I could only reach the fuse with 1 hand after removing the cover attached to the bed frame and 1 screw into the interior skin. I finally had my wife to help due to her size.

Whoever decided to put a fuse there should be lynched IMHO. it would have been much better to put the fuse holder in the cabinet directly behind the detector. I decided to put a 5 A fuse in the original location and added another holder with a 1 A fuse at the detector. If there is a problem it'll pop 1st. The primary power wire is about 14 gauge so a 5A fuse at the terminal block still protects the wire.

Thanks to all for the help in finding the location of the fuse!
