Hidden Fuse?

1989 B17 Bigfoot. Several items not working ( Propane alarm,outside entry light,outside Hitchlight,and Refrigerator. Is there a "Hidden" fuse? I am hooked up to Battery,propane and 110. I found a blown 30 amp coming off the battery plus I checked the 4 convertor fuses. Where should I look next?

Check the grounding. If they have a common ground and it is not making a good connection for conductivity that could cause this issue

I have a fuse in a single fuse holder under the left dinette seat. It is in the wiring harness at the front bulkhead. It is a glass 30A fuse. Is that the fuse you found? I've seen this exact set up on several 17 Bigfoot trailers.

Yes, my Bigfoot has that fuse too. Driver side, under dinette seat against the very front of the camper. That could be the problem.

No fuses buT the convertor is making funny clicking sounds and the 15 a fuse doesn't wasn't to stay imbedded. When I pull a fuse ie furnace , from the convertor it is awfully hot....
