Nope but it's pretty simple to figure out.

Good work Myron and thank you for posting your "cure" for us all to learn .... but my biggest question is what caused it to blow in the first place?


Tom


I'm getting my 17A in late October but I have this little item on my list too. Maybe a couple in case I didn't fix the reason it blew in the first place.

The NEC requires that the overcurrent device for the battery be as close as practicable to the battery . The overcurrent device should be within the first 18" of the battery conductors (18" of conductor length -- not 18" from the battery) if possible. In my Casita the battery overcurrent device is mounted to the exterior wall of the battery compartment under the lift out seat of the dinnette . The overcurrent device should be accessible. Accessible is defined as not requiring you to remove permanent portions of the structure to gain access. IE Buried in a wall is not accessible . My Scamp had a fuse in the battery box and a fuse just inside the front wall of the trailer.

Wish I knew the failure cause, Tom. Have no idea. Best guess is the original breaker failed because it became a lemon. (I do know the Bussmann replacement is made in the USA.) I didn't know the breaker was even there until Corrales Dave clued me in. Then, a continuity test of it produced an audible buzz so I figured that weren't the problem.

I first worried the WFCO was gone bad because of the way its little fuse warning red lights were acting. Briefly on, then dim, then out, etc. I was out of options when Dave convinced me to check that breaker again so I removed it and when it failed another continuity test I just said what the hell and ran off to AutoZone. Problem solved.

No, since most ETI trailers are custom, that probably wouldn't be practical.

For the most part, it's pretty simple. Though this is the second fuse that I've seen that wouldn't seem to be intuitive. The other is on the refrigerator wiring block.

Bruce...Well if I had to guess, based upon Steve's post above and where I found mine, it likely should be close by the WFCO and/or your battery.

I checked my Escape 19 which was built in mid May and It appears I have three devices like this. Perhaps someone has an idea why there are three of them and what they might be for.

Isn't the one on the left the back of the 12v disconnect switch?
