We have a 2005 Fleetwood 39S Excursion with a Norcold 1200 refer in it. We've been told there is a fuse someplace in the back of the 1200. I've done a bit of maintenance on it over the ages and have never seen a fuse on the refer itself. I'd like to find the fuse, identify it, and carry a spare.

Can anyone confirm there is a fuse on the 1200? If yes, please tell me where it is or what it is so I can buy a spare.

If or when the fuse blows, it will be for a reason like a failed 120V heater. Simply replacing a blown fuse wont get you far. BTW, it's under that black plastic cover that houses the circuit board.

Good luck getting the cover off.

I had to remove my cover to reset the board and fashioned a cardboard cover to replace the black plastic one.

Now it's simple to get to my board in case I need to reset it again.

Thanks. I've had to reset my board also, but didn't notice the fuse as I had other thing on my mind.

Keep in mind as has been said, the only purpose of the fuse is to protect the 120v heating elements - there may be two fuses on the 1200. If they blow, you may as well buy a new heating element before you replace the fuse.

My previous MH had 1200 and it used to trip the GFI when I tried to start the refrigerator to cool it down. It would switch over to propane and cool down before I'd notice the GFI had tripped. After I reset the GFI and the boiler on the 1200 was good a hot, it continued operation on 120v with not issues. The fuses never blew.
