You're on the right track. My guess is that main fuse.

If I understood well you have lost all the power? If so thanI agree, check the main fuse first. If not the fuse than check the contacts around the battery. I had the same problem several times and it turned out to be a bad "+" contact at the battery.

Clean ground battery/frame even if you have another problem.

Cold morning… Everything dead…



I am not a betting man but I would lay down a buck or two (up to the price of an extra large double double) that it is your Dog Bone fuse. Replace that first. If it’s not gone now… it will at some point leaving you stranded somewhere you don’t want to be.



Those fuses can be cracked and you may never see it. Remove it and put something like this in there. Saves you a lot of time and effort, embarrassment and money if you have to get towed somewhere.

Yep, I have done that anyway! But this was about the "+" wire contact at the battery, the leaden clamp got oxidized andcaused troubles with contactwhen a lot of "juice" comes thru, like when starting....
