How can i figure out what is causing the fuse to blow on the storage compartment lights of our Chaparral 325MKS
With electrical it is a matter of spending the time eliminating the variables. If a fuse is blowing you are more than likely dealing with a short to ground. It could be a staple through a wire or a place in the wire where the sheathing has rubbed through allowing the hot wire to contact a ground source. It could also be a bad ground which is allowing resistance to build and ultimately blowing a fuse. First, determine everything that is on the circuit (which lights). Second, inspect every inch of the circuit for bad connections, loose grounds, and damaged wires. If nothing is found then start eliminating one fixture at a time to see if you can find the culprit. If you disconnect the last light in the series and the fuse still blows. Reconnect the last light and move on to the next light and so on until you find the problem. It can be time consuming and unfortunately there typically aren't any wiring schematics for RV's.
