So frustrating.
End of round one, round two has begun - The fuse can happen, but on ours, the fuses were popping due to poor wiring connections and poor grounding. See how it goes. If the trouble resumes, you know that you will need to go through the wiring and grounds yourself. It did not take us long, in our RV ownership, to determine that the dealer is the last alternative on our list, especially with wiring (same as automobiles, maybe worse). You may have an extra wonderful (knowledgeable, experienced, and honest) tech; I have heard that they exist. The work is not difficult; it is tedious and time consuming which is why most dealers do not do a good job for you.
I know all about wanting it handled "under warranty." Try to get what you can out of them while you have the warranty. But have your eyes wide open about the reality that most dealers and service operations will not do the job half as well (if at all) as you will do. Plus, when you do the work yourself, you learn about your camper and gain valuable skills and knowledge that will serve you many times over. We celebrate when our warranties expire, when we become free to get the job done right and well ourselves and not lose tons of time and experience the frustration and disappointment that the dealers and manufacturers provide. It does not get much more frustrating than jumping through all of the dealer and warranty hoops only to find that the work was not done, was done poorly, and/or their "fix" created more problems.
Also, let us know how the tent repair goes. I have a lot of experience with that as well. They may need to replace it for you. We hope this trip is all you need. Keep us posted. Lots of us on this forum will be glad to help you!
