12 Volt Cig/power doesn't work

Newbie, first time, be gentle with me :-)
2018 Vegas 25.2, E450. The cigarette lighter / 12-volt power receptacle stopped working. I found the fuse box (engine compartment, drivers side and the fuse guide in the Ford manual). According to the manual, the fuse for this is in slot #72 and is a 20A. There is no fuse in that slot but in slot 70 there is a 30A.... is this it? I saw another post about a 2015 but the config looked different.

My biggest confusion is that the port worked previously, there appears to not be a fuse in the fuse box for it. I did have it serviced recently for a windshield leak could they have taken it out then and forgot to replace it?

Your help is most appreciated.

12 Volt Cig/power doesn't work

Look on the cover plate for the fuse box located in the front storage compartment on the driver side. On our 2015 Axis, the 12 volt cig outlets are labeled “power point” and have a 20A fuse located at F17.

Still no luck :-(

Thanks for the tip. Got a fuse from a Ford Dealer, still didn't work. Called RV dealer, they don't answer phones or emails. Called Thor Customer Service, told to get a fuse. Finally called a Ford dealer that is 75 miles away that will deal with an RV and an E450. Appointment on Thursday. all for a 12-volt dash power supply. Just one of 5 months of fixes on a new rig.

I had problems with them also. The factory installed ones are junk. Found some marine quality units and installed those. Work fine. They are easy to reach and super easy to replace. I would try that fix. A few bucks instead of a big bill from a service place or a long wait when it only takes a half hour max.

Hello I may be late on this, I have the 2016 25.2 Vegas. The outlet on the dash did not work on mine either. I looked under the dash and the power wire was not connected. I removed the outlet pulled the power wire through the hole, plugged it in and reinstalled the outlet. Well I hope this helps.!

Hi, when you say it does not work do you mean that you tested it with a meter and there is no voltage, or that an accessory plugged in does not work? If you don't have a meter go and buy one. They cost about $15 and are really useful for RV owners. Put the meter on DC Volts 20V, put the red lead in the center of the power port and the black on the rim. If no power the first thing I would try is to put a new fuse in the empty 72 slot and see what happens. Minimal risk and might work. Maybe the shop took it out? The looking under the dash suggestion is a good one - on RVs things vibrate loose a lot.

Fixed the problem

Thank you for your reply. I checked the 12v port with a meter. No power. It turned out that there was an inline fuse that no one seemed to know about :-(
burned out 20 amp fuse.

Don’t know if it was a Thor mod or if it was a CW fix.

Thanks for all of the replies.

Same here, only I discovered it when checking out the dash radio with dog house off. We must have had the same guy working on ours. One wire hooked up and the other dangling

Same issue

This just happened to me today. 2017 Thor Axis 24.1. New GPS just shut off, driving down the road. I determined the power is out for the 12v dc plug. (Harmon is fine) Ed Felker guide says slot 72 for a 2015. Do I need to take it to a Ford Dealer? It’s always something!

A question I have is why does this fuse blow. Could the wire have been intentionally left unconnected at the factory. I connected the power wire to the lighter but haven’t used it yet.

Cheryl H.,

Check the wiring behind the 12v outlet first. Mine was disconnected last year. I used some plyers to smash the female connectors slightly to make it a tighter fit - never came off again.

So im like the 3 person that posted here with the same loose wire issue - I bet this is very common so I would check it first.

Let us know what you find out.

I replaced the 30 Amp fuse and it’s working now. Hopefully it won’t just blow again. Thanks for the suggestions and confirmation of the location of that fuse.

We are having the same issue on a 2017 Thor Axis 24.1. Took a trip this summer and found out our Garmin wasn't charging because the cig lighter fuse is not working. Took it to Best Buy and tech was unable to locate the cig charger fuse box. I do not think we looked in the front compartment yet. Maybe it is there.

Larry - thanks for this tip. Will check out this as our cig lighter will not work either.
