I have 2095 Fleetwood 39S Providence, there is a 5 amp fuse in the fuse block that blows as soon as you put it in. When I turn the ignition on the glow plug light does not come on and when you turn the ignition key to start nothing happens
Check the engine compartment and found a nest on top of the engine but cannot see any wires chewed up
Any ideas on what could be wrong

Sorry that happened to you. The nest is certainly a good clue. It happened to me in the past. I just had to get a test light and start at the battery and trace the power to all components. I know it sounds time consuming, but there is little else you can do.


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

Welcome.

Please "edit" your post to tell us what year (not 2095) and what engine you have.

Does the Allison shift pad illuminate when the key is turned on?

Was that nest made from the wiring harness? Ugh.

5 amp fuses are usually control circuits
For example the step CONTROL switch
The battery Disconnect solenoid
It isolator solenoid
All have 5 amp fuses

There may be other 5 amp circuits as well.


Home is where I park it.
