There are fuses in your converter as well. Make sure you get the right sizes for both just in case

The converter is the main power box inside the TT where the AC circuit breakers are located. There are DC fuses there as well

many converters also have fuses in the side of them. They are located behind the fuse panel/circuit breaker panel inside the trailer. To find these, you would have to remove the cover from the fuse and circuit breaker panel, then remove the fuse and circuit breaker panel itself. There will be very little room to work around the wire harness but the harness will lead you to the converter itself.

Replaced the fuse at the battery and all seems to be well. Lights are back on. Lesson learned not to run slide on battery at least when anything else is on.

Looked for this mysterious converter by the circuit breaker and fuse panel and did not see anything. Removed cover and nothing looked like it should be removed so didn't try.

Generally I believe the slide should be one of the first things out and the last thing in. So in that case you won't have much else running. But keep spare fuses on hand. When you picked up your rig the dealer should have reviewed the circuit breaker/fuse box with you as well as that main fuse. It is a shame that some just smile and wave.

Glad everything works. Once I park my TT and have it leveled left and right, I will usually unhitch my TV and move it just enough to leave the TT plugged in and the safety chains connected while I get the unit leveled front to rear. Then I will snug the stabilizer jacks. Then I step inside and run my slide out. I do this with the TV running at idle the entire time. When I go to hook up I do the process exactly in reverse.

Well, they definitely did not show us the main fuse but they did show us the circuit breaker and fuses inside the trailer. It was all very overwhelming. I had the PDI checklist from this forum with me but had to abandon it. We had the kids with us but that couldn't be avoided. The dealer actually spent a couple of hours with us for the walk through and then even more time back and forth with us in the parts department getting us situated. They threw in the hitch installation for free too! I was very happy with our service. I think a lot of it will have to come from experience unfortunately.

Well I am glad to hear your up and running again. That main fuse is a pretty important thing as you have learned. Good luck with everything else, stay in touch.

If the battery was not fully charged it could also cause a higher than normal draw on the battery. It's best to have the shore power connected or if boon docking plug it back into the tow vehicle and have the engine running when moving the slide.

We just returned from our trip and unfortunately that same fuse blew two more times when plugging or unplugging from the generator. Doesn't seem like that should happen. Called dealer and they said to bring it on in for them to investigate.

On the bright side we love the trailer and the layout works well for our family. The only thing besides this hopefully temporary fuse issue that we didn't like is the trailer shake when the kids are in their bunks up front and they move around it shakes the whole trailer and hard for us to sleep in our rear slide bed in the back. Saw another post about that so will go look it up. Hopefully I will find some way to minimize it.
