I'm not sure what 'other forum' you're referring to, but I couldn't find any other threads in your history with the same content here on TF.

'Ground mixing with negative bars'. This is a concept I am not familiar with. Are you describing reversed polarity? Whoever told you this might need to elaborate.

The easiest way to map a fuse bus/panel is to turn everything on, then pull one fuse at a time and see what shuts off.

"Ground mixing with negative bars" is a pretty cryptic description. But it might relate to the problem with the AC's ground system I had on my 2006 Mainship 34T. The ground was never connected to the chassis case on the Charles isolation transformer. I discovered this when I plugged a ground/neutral tester into an outlet socket.



The same incompentent installer who did mine, might have also have done yours!
