greetings!

Hello...we've had a Sunline 1986 Camper ...o for about 8 yrs now.. it has sat in the driveway, it has sat in the side yard, back again in the driveway..needless to say, last year, we actually used it!! And let some friends borrow it. My question is.. according to the friend that borrowed it, she said the refrigerator kept blowing a fuse.. does anyone have any ideas on this and where do I locate the fuse box..We never recv'd an owners manual with the camper! Thanks, Karenjean

Hi karenjean, Welcome to the forum.

Do you know the camper model and/or the fridge model?

Perhaps the friend that said the fridge was blowing fuses could tell you where the fuse is located.

Blowing a fuse or tripping a breaker?

Since RV refrigerators have a tendency to fail starting about 10 years old, it's very possible that the refrigerator has a problem with it. Did it cool at all, or did it just trip the breaker fuse when turned on?

Gene,
The fridge model is a Domestic RM 661... my husband thinks maybe the receptacle to which it should be plugged in outside the door on the side panel may be bad? Of course getting him to check this is a whole other story..!! We are trying to locate the fuse box and or finding and owners manual for this camper. Thanks for your help!! Karen

SunlinFan will know where the fuse box is if you give the Camper model number, which should be by the entry door.

It's just a little too old to have that. It was just on the VIN sticker in this case.

That's the model of the Dometic refrigerator. Pam is referring to newer Sunlines (starting 1989) that had a small plate next to the outside entry door that say what model/floorplan the trailer is. Yours still has a number, it just wasn't advertised as clearly. Basically you can look in the brochure on here. I gave you a breakdown in the VIN thread to determine it too.
