    Post Electrical short- blowing fuses

    On our Reflection 337RLS (2014) a little over a year old. Blowing fuse for curb side slide circuit (15 amp.). Lights fed are above dining table and above recliners. Bulbs in fixture above recliners are overheating, one melted so it will not release from socket. Have disconnected white wire, still blows fuse. Where should I look for problem and solution?

    Hi Steve and Lynne (@steve gravelle),

    My understanding is that JD in our Customer Support team will be calling you to discuss your concern, so unless I hear differently from you I will consider this handled/closed.

    Janice, I have not had contact with JD Adams yet! Should I call him directly? I don't want to interrupt him when he is dealing with others' traumas, but I hope to get his wisdom on this mystery. Thank you! Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Just saw this thread . . . I would suggest checking the other fixture over the recliners that was also overheating. It may have melted far enough to cause a short even though the bulb will release from the socket. Just a thought . . .

    I have a 303 which had a similar problem with the fuse blowing for the curb side lighting. After many hours of chasing wires I found a junction box behind the recliners. I should tell you also that I had replaced all the bulbs with LEDs so there was no overheating issue. I found the correct wires leading to the fixtures (based on color) cut them and the fuse stopped blowing. I know this sounds primitive (I'm a EE) but it's the best I could do as there are no drawings or diagrams available. I disconnected all the fixtures from the circuit and still blew the fuse. I found that there is no access to wires in the wall or ceiling so I decided to give the wires in question a gentle tug so they moved about 1/2" or so. Spliced them back together and solved my problem. I suspect that the wires may have been punctured by a screw and at some point shorted to the frame. Just guessing. But I haven't had any further issues with this for a year. Good luck!

    Steve, check under your slide, if the 337 is anything like our 369 there are wires hanging close to the slide gears/track. Had the same happen to our 369 and found that the wiring under the slide had been pinched by the slide gear/track.
