Help finding a fuse

I have a 2003 Winnebago Sightseer on a Workhorse Chassis P32.

I went out to start it this morning and the battery was dead, tried to start it using Aux start switch, it would not start. I was able to jump it using our toad, and got it started, but now the fuel gage, and tachometer is inoperative. I am hoping that it is just a blown fuse. Not sure what fuse it would be or the location.
Any help would be appreciated.

Fuses for run functions are usually in a box containing fuses and relays. It is often found under the dashboard or in the engine compartment. You might also check the bundle of wires running from the steering column ignition switch down the column. A large connector there can fail from too many functions being switched by the ignition switch. Check for signs of melting or heat.

Thanks for your reply, I found the fuses in the engine compartment, but could not locate the Internal Fuse Block. I did not see any obvious access from the dash, I crawl under the drivers side but could not locate the fuse block.

Thanks for your help,

Try lifting the instrument panel. They are usually hinged near the windshield and held down by a small patch of Velcro on either side. Give it a good yank and it should lift.

Thanks for the help, I lifted the instrument panel, and you are absolutely correct, the internal fuse block was there. Unfortunately all the fuses are good. Any suggestions for the direction to go. I plan on putting a new chassis battery in tomorrow.
Thanks again for all your help.

Make sure to label cables and take a photo or two of the hook up. There are many sad stories of folks who don't take such precautions! Also, while installing the new battery take time to clean not only the cable clamps but the ground connections.

Replaced the battery today, everything came back to life. Tachometer, fuel gauge all works.

Thanks for all the help and advice.
