Fuse box location ?

Hello, I have a Ď22 Hideout 186SS and my space heater tripped the breaker last night. I searched hi and low for the fuse box but couldnít find it, Keystone customer service was not helpful at all, they couldnít even find my model# in their database. Anyways, anyone know where the fuse box may be? I have one receptacle with a reset on it and it wonít reset at all. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have a much older camper and my power center is a bit different than your power center but your power center will have a black or dark brown cover and be approximately 18" wide. I think perhaps it will be under your refrigerator but after looking at some sales pictures for your model can swear to it. The cover needs to be opened and there will be several circuit breakers. The largest amperage breaker will be on the left and likely had 30 on it. Turn it all the way off then all the way back on like a light switch. Breaker switch may appear to be untripped to the eye but actually is. You may have also tripped one of the 15A breakers which provide electricity to the outlets on the wall and it is very likely your space heater shouldn't be used on these outlets. Last, the outlet with the reset is a GFI outlet and trips when water is in the circuit and that is why they are used in the bath area and kitchen. They are usually in a circuit with other outlets that are protected by the one with the reset.

I suggest you purchase and use an ELECTRICAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (EMS) to protect your expensive components from damage; a surge protector will NOT. The Progressive unit shown here is the one I use but there are others; don't be fooled by them calling it a surge protector and note they call it a EMS in the description:

Last you may want to run a heavy duty extension cord out a window or such and connect your space heater if you are in an RV park as the pedestal will typically have a 15/20A outlet on the pedestal that can be used and you likely won't trip anything in your camper.

Your "power center" is located in the bottom of the rear wardrobe/cupboard. It's the black plastic door. Push on the locking tab and half the door will drop down, revealing the circuit breakers for shore power and the fuse panel for battery power.

Here's a photo of your rear wall. The "power center" is located in the yellow circle.

Thank you for the replies. I did find the box finally though I passed over that damn cover all night long not imagining it being behind there. Lol. This camper world is very new to me. All is good now. Thanks again.
