There was another thread here last week with a fuel pump fuse blowing during start on a RV12. Ended up being the battery. Seems about right time to check the battery on a 2014 A/C. Have you tried it?

Leave master switch turned off. Disconnect orange wire from start contactor. Connect a test light between battery positive and the orange wire. Briefly touch orange wire to ground to make sure that test light works. Wiggle orange wire and purple ignition wire. If test light illuminates, there is a short circuit to ground.

We have a winner! See video below. Now the tricky part: replacing the wire(s).
