Four winds radio fuse blown - location??

If you have read my other post I have dealing with a bunch of issues with my 2015 four winds 31e, bunkhouse. I have finally worked out all issues but one.

The radio in the front and rear will not work. It seams to be a fuse but I cannot locate it. I leave in the morning and would like to get this working for the trip.

Thanks in advance. This forum has helped alot.

I believe you have already left, but check the fuse box right next to the breaker box. Otherwise it's going to be a hunt it down thing. Try calling Thor tech guys they are pretty helpful have your VIN handy for them.

In our Windsport 34J, our radio/camera display in the cabin will not work unless the generator is on. In other words, if you have the rig turned on to drive - you can't listen to the radio or benefit from the camera display unless the generator is on. It's driving me crazy. I too assume it's a circuit issue. I want to say that I saw circuits near our chassis battery - behind the front hood.

Thanks for the replies. I found the blown fuses. It was the fuses that are in the back of the radio. Had to remove the dash radio and rear bedroom radio and replace the built in fuses.

Good to know, thanks for coming back and explaining where you found them. Guess I better get one of those loops you use to get the radio out

Unfortunately, mine was not included and the dealer said I must have lost them. I told them I don't mind paying for them, so I'm waiting

Try a local Auto Parts Store...
Advance Auto Parts near me had the tool (2 wire loops with tapered ends) - called 'OEM Radio Removal Tools (Ford, Lincoln, Mercury)' - and cost a whopping $7.

My radio did not require any special tool to remove. The front Dash of the Ford 450 simply has snaps that pop out. Once the dash is loosened the radio has 4 screws with a socked head on them. I don't remember the size but once you remove the four screws the radio slide out of place and you can access the rear.

I always try to post the solution to problems once I find them. It is frustrating to read a post of the exact problem you are having and the op does not post the solution.
