All fuses present?

Fellow Air Streamers—
As I began to wonder about why the converter fan has stopped running incessantly (having stopped after I disconnected the AGM batteries, as it seemed there was a short between the fuse holder and power jack), I decided to have a look at the fuse box and noticed there is no fuse at the 10 and 11 positions nor is there a 30 amp green fuse between the two other 30 amp green fuses. Is this normal? I will include a photo here. Thank you.

Can't answer about the missing 30-amp fuse, but for #10 & #11, it appears from the photo that nothing is connected to them. If there is no wire attached leading to a circuit, then you have two extra positions you can use at a later time to add circuits.

Looks like the missing 30-amp fuse MIGHT have something to do with reverse polarity protection, but you'll have to check with your manual or someone more informed than me on this one.

Pull out the electrical diagram in your owners manual and see what is supposed to be what. That's the only way do know if fuses ( and what fuses ) should be where.

With the fuses missing, there is less load on the converter. Missing fuses are *not* causing the fan to run. Fixing a jack short at the battery by fiddling the fuse block will not help anything. The jack runs past those fuses / straight to the battery.

Again, if this is not making sense, get a tech out to straighten it out for you.

Also: scattering bits and pieces of this out between many threads makes things a bit difficult to link up ....
