    Please could someone invent a fuse that bleeps continually when it has blown, so that I know that it has gone and don't keep going with the whatever until the point where damage is done. Thank you.

    (My fuses are not all in the same place and I am fed up with them already.)

    You really shouldn't be blowing fuses! Something is wrong if you are.

    If you have fuses blowing all the time sounds like you may have some mouse damage, chewed wires. Rather than keep replacing fuses get the system electrically tested for short circuits.

    Long story, Brian.... but put as succinctly as a blonde can do that doesn't even know the meaning ......:Wink: the fuse had gone from the leisure batteries to the little box with red and green lights on ... (the one that leads to something to do with the battery master.)

    This lot is under the seat in the lounge area, not with the fuse box and the rest of the fuses under the front passenger seat. The fuse had gone and it took someone else who is good with car engines etc to find it because I would never have had a clue..... sooooooooooo

    if blown fuses bleeped when they go, then I would have looked there straight away and put a new one in. It wouldn't have solved the complete problem but would have been one problem solved as I am now wondering all the time if the fuses have blown again and my van battery not charging from the solar ... leisure batteries ... battery master thingies .... I hope you understood all that.:Sad:

    ive seen indicator fuses that light up and others that pop up a little tag to show they have blown but the size of fuses in a motorhome would make these impossible to fit

    replacing the fuseboard with one with led indicators is possible but expensive if you cant do it yourself. if you have the skills to change the board you would not need the indicator though

    Can't fault that logic. But due to small size near impossible to make.

    MHs are the pits electrically, a bit from FIAT, a bit from Burstner ( very good bit ), a bit from Uncle Tom Cobbley. If they were properly engineered in the first place a display would tell you what had blown and what to do. Which is pretty much what CANBUS is all about, everything in control of a computer.

    I've replaced all mine with the LED type. Not had one go yet but it will make life easier when one does.
