I have a 2019 Minnie Plus travel trailer that blows 20-amp fuses immediatly after applying power. I noticed a blown fuse indicator light when I plugged it in today to prepare for a trip. The fuse is labled Slide 2, but I only have 1 slide out. Something else is shorting the circuit. Anyone have suggestions on how to do some troubleshooting? The slideout I have works even with the fuse blown. Appreciate any help. Thanks.

If everything works with the fuse blown, you could just leave it for your trip.

Its not uncommon for the manufacturers to pinch a wire somewhere, such as between frame and floor, or to run a screw or staple through a wire, or water line. Junk construction to no end. Find the wire connected to the terminal for said fuse and chase it.

It might not be easy to find. It might help if you determined what didn’t work when the fuse was blown. It might give you a clue. Question: does it blow immediately every time you put a new fuse in?

The replacement fuse blew immediately when I turned the power back on. I will dig into it more to see what is not working. Something is shorted. Thanks for responding.
