fuse panel question

Hey yall, where might I find the fuse box in my 75 argosy MH??
My control panel is not working and thought I would start there. It was working until just recently. The generator switch still works but nothing else. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

The fuse panel should be on the Univolt, probably in the bathroom.

Hey...I found it! I don't have any idea what a univolt is but the fuse box was in the bathroom like you said Terry. I had already checked the fuse at the control panel and that wasn't it. It WAS a burnt fuse, thank the Good Lord. I can fix that!! Thanks for your help!!

The Univolt is the power converter that makes 12v for the lighting, fans, and charges the batteries.
It can be located by following the loud HUMMMMMMM when plugged in to shore power. Most people remove them for use as boat anchors, and replace them with electronic (quiet) converters. Doing this can also extend battery and 12v equipment life.

Hmmmmmm, sounds like a good project for the future......after I lose half my body size and learn to contort! My Univolt is located on the lower inside wall of my bath cabinent. Some little skinny doublejointed feller must have been the installer! But I'm sure there's an easier way. When I get ready to change I will do a search here on the forum.
