advice on fuse location needed

Hi folks, I have a 2004 Grehawk 26SS and the indash stereo lost all power to it this weekend. I'm guessing a fuse but the fuse panel under the hood has no diagram for it and the picture of the fuse box in the owners manuals (both the Ford and Jayco) dont really match the actual box. The manual says the stereo fuse is a 5 amp in the #27 spot in the box.....but that spot is empty and not set up for any fuse at all. Everything else on the dash is working. There is another fuse marked "stereo" under the fridge where the appliance fuses ar located but it looks good. Any help is appreciated!

Might be worthwhile to put a VOM on it... or replace the fuse to be sure.

I think the other fuse box is behind the driver side kick panel fuse #27. If not there try passenger side kick panel

If power source has been switched...shore power to cab battery to house battery etc, you have to just push the reset button on the face of the radio. I just use a ballpoint pen to push the button and the radio goes back on. Hope this makes sense. P.S. I have a 2008 31 SS Greyhawk.

thanks for the replies....I forgot to mention I tried the reset switch on the face of the stereo........using a ball point pen, it does not seem to move (or indent) at all....so I'm not sure it is actually doing anything. I'm wondering if that is the problem tho because I think the stereo (may have) lost power after my wife inadvertantly pushed the "auxiliary starter" button down by the foot brake, thinking it was the brake release. So, question: does the tiny reset button on the faceplate actually move detectably inward when pressed with a ball point pen? Other than that, I still can't find any fuse boxes other than the one under the hood....I can't believe they don't include a schematic/diagram for it.

This may be no help at all but car radios sometimes have an in-line fuse.
