We have supplemented the slide a few times when camping off the power grid by jumping the trailer battery setup with the truck start battery...

I normally don't like to break one of my golden rules to NEVER NEVER EVER use my truck start battery except to start my truck. This is the way we get home...

All of my high current devices like the slide motor use auto reset circuit breakers like shown in above post. If they trip they will cool down a couple of minutes and reset things...

My fifth wheel has a setup like this on the wall in the battery compartment...

My OFF-ROAD POPUP has two 25AMP BREAKERS strapped together to give a 50AMP protection for the electric roof raise motor.

You may have something keeping the slide from running smoothly... Maybe a couple of sticks or something under there...

The earlier X213 prior to 2010 later had a recall to replace their slide motor for bigger motors.... That has got to be hugh slide moving that large bed end setup they have...

Everything has a maintenance schedule that needs attention.

Thanks for the input. All will be checked once we return home. The rig does have a couple of warranty issues that the dealer will address. The fuse issue is on the list.

Again, thank you all.

Probably not your problem, but perhaps worth a check - have you looked underneath the trailer at all? We had a non-jayco before now, and for a time it would blow a fuse on our slide without us doing anything. Turns out the wiring underneath the trailer had never been strapped down, and driving down the road would swing around eventually wearing through the wire insulation. This then allowed it to short to the frame.

Question; do the slides have their own breaker/fuse in the breaker panel? I would assume so, and this makes me question why the fuse on your trailer tongue is the one popping. Like someone else said, maybe there is something else going on. Out of curiosity, you might try removing the other 12V fuses from the box to temporarily disable those circuits, leaving just the slide - and see what happens then.

My X213 is doing the same thing. it pops right when the clutch is to kick in. I have no issues when connected to power. On my TT the rear slide sags as you extend / retract until it "seats" fully out / in.
