Your solution is a correct one. Used to do the same thing myself. I got a piece of red tape and put it where I want it to stop. That way it doesnt max out and I quit going through fuses. Its been working for awhile now.

I will do the same tonight.

I wonder if the slide out is powered by the same fuse. Between the two, jack and slide, folding up and bottoming both out, one weakens, one blows the fuse.?

Take it for what it's worth; on my last trailer the only time I had an issue with the tongue jack fuse blowing is when I connected the 12V wiring harness to the truck without first disconnecting the 120V shore power. It seemed like having 2 power sources connected was the issue, so I don't ever do that anymore. My current trailer has not ever blown the fuse (yet) and I exercise it to the limit switch (full travel).

Me personally think the stock electric tounge jacks are garbage. Another upgrade to the trailer is in the future.
