Exclamation 88 Winniebago Cheiftain 31 Fuse help!?

Howdy, I have a 88 winniebago cheiftain 31.
I'm missing the first two glass fuses and my ACC (the only horizontal) is Broken.
I have no idea what amp to buy!
The diagram is there, but the amp notes have all worn away.
I live in this camper for now and I don't want to catch on fire putting a 25 in a 15. I was wondering does anyone have a diagram for this model?
Or at least know what to do or how to find out?
Also I don't have owners manuals.
Also, my Accessory panel isn't working (the thing that controls my water heater and oven fan and such. It worked a few weeks ago, but maybe it's the blown fuse? is that what the ACC fuse that blew was?
And what about the first two that are missing? How do i know if they are 15 or 25 or ??
Sorry for all the questions, thanks for reading! I look forward to hearing from you

Just put 15 amp fuses in and monitor. Or even 7 amp if you have them. You could put a current meter across the fuse terminals too but you risk damaging the meter if the current is above it's rating. Usually meters are rated 10 amp, but most of them will easily stand a 25 amp surge for several seconds. And the meter display will usually show OL (OverLoad) if that's the case.

Be sure to read the meters instructions before attempting to read current if you are not well versed in the procedure. You'll note that reading current requires the positive lead be moved to one of the other holes in the face of the meter.
