2019 GT fridge wiring

Alright folks, got a bit of a pickle here.

The fridge stopped working on me and I had to jump some power from the 12v heating element power to get power to the control panel.

Here what I've got so far...

I plug in the green/black wire that's supposed to provide power the control panel, with everything as it should be it doesn't get enough power to the panel only 3.5v.

when i unplug the thermal cutout i get proper voltage, but as soon as i put the terminals back on it drops back down to 3.5v. But i jump the power form the heating element (the larger gauge wire) to the terminal and everything works fine.

so my question is does anyone know where the black/green wire goes to?

form the wiring schematic that i have with the owners manual it shows that it go's through a terminal strip that has a 2 amp fuse which should be good since there is still power but would like to verify that it still works.

or if anyone has a better schematic that would be helpful too.

I have a 2020 25FB with the same issue. The 2 amp fuse is located under the passenger side bed at the front. If you look underneath the trailer you will see the wiring harness enter from the batteries. You have to remove the front bed platform and you will see the inverter and a plastic box which contains the teminal block. You will have to loosen the screws on the inverter , set it aside, no need to disconnect, to remove cover. The 2 amp fuse is on the terminal block, but I have never seen one like it , it is a small diode. Let me know what you think if you take yours apart. I have not tried to jump the fuse so I dont know if is is blown or not. Good luck.

Hey David,

thank you for the reply it was very informative and i'll certainly check out that little grey box (been wondering what it was). And i'll get back here to with the results. it's going to be a couple day until i see Falkor.

Had the same problem with our 2019 GT. Was a heck of a thing to figure out. The fuse is blown. Replace it with a 3 or 4 amp fuse. Was told by the tech at Jackson Center that the 2A fuse is not enough and sometimes blows and they replace it with a slightly higher amp fuse. I think mine was replaced with a 3A. As someone else posted the fuse is not in the main panel. If you have the queen bed config it is in the front compartment in a fuse box near the inverter. Remove the board to get to it.

The reason you get the small voltage reading, is when the fuse blows, there is an LED light on the fuse holder that turns on to let you know which fuse is blown. There is just enough juice flowing through this to give you the weird 3.5V reading.

Thanks Steve. I found the problem. The 2 amp fuse is weird, diode type with a hinge which opens and closes. Did you replace the fuse holder also, with a glass type or automotive blade type like are used in the converter? If I blow the fuse I do not know where to get one like the one AS uses. My fuse was not blown but, my wiring was shorted due to bare wires scraped upon installation of wiring by AS.

My fuse was replaced by Vern at the AS Factory Service Center. I assume he just replaced the fuse. Glad you found the short. It is troubling to hear about bare wires shorting out in our aluminum skinned trailers.

If you want to carry some spares I'm sure you could get some from Mouser (https://www.mouser.com/Circuit-Prote...uses/_/N-ba85y). Perhaps AS tech support could give you the manufacturer and part number.

Alright,

for those of you wondering about the 12V wiring and the 2amp fuse for the fridge.

I've finally replaced the fuse and all is well again in the world of Falkor.

here are pictures that I took of the box under the bed in the storage compartment and the actual 2 amp fuse that fails. also that diode that's supposed to light up... didn't, or wasn't working.

it is a 5x20mm 2amp fuse at 250v which you i got at lowe's.

hope this helps some of you out there.

My fridge died over the summer. The tech at the RV shop replaced the inline diode type fuse with a regular bladed fuse (also inline)—you can find these at any auto supply store.
