THOR #13703
Instrument Panel lights out

Hi I have a 2018 Thor Miramar 35.3 and the instrument panel on the dashboard for the the speedometer, etc does not light up any more. The ford manual shows a fuse panel that is not there. Can someone tell me where the fuse panel is and which fuse and what size fuse is needed.
Thanks

Thor wouldn't have moved the fuse panel, but they may have hidden it. If Ford put it there, it's still there.

It is a Ford instrument panel installed by Detroit Chassis at the Detroit factory. The instrument panel fuse is listed in the Ford chassis manual and in the Ford power center (fuse box is under the hood).

2018 Ford F-53 owners manual page 69 fuse #6 dimmer module, fuse #12 main feed instrument panel and fuse #14 instrument panel battery feed. Most likely problem is the dimmer module has died.

So you're saying the Ford power distribution box under the hood below the air intake is not there?

I don't have your rig but have opened a variety of fuse boxes. All of them have plastic clips that snap on and off. Use a flashlight and possibly a mirror, and search along the joint between the top cover and the body of the fuse box. You will see plastic clips, usually 2 or 4. Typically its a u shaped loop on the cover and a tabbed prong on the bottom. Use a small screw driver and pop the u ring off the tab.

Bottom right corner, there is a small tab that opens it. Spent 30 minutes finding it.
