Thanks!

I went and found that out also.... just as back up. I also found that 11mm fits.

My 2015 26BHS came with a jack that doesn't look like the one in the OP's photo, but the single sheet of paper that came with the trailer calls it a FIC-3500-2. I'm looking for the fuse that causes it to work on the TV power supply but no the trailer's battery.

The fuse that works the power tongue jack is located directly behind the battery in an inline fuse holder.

It seems that Jayco started shipping with the new style jack about June. Mine came with the new jack, but the cover was cracked, so I had the dealer switch it to one like the OP shows. All the rest of the Jayco trailers on the lot had the old jack style, but then they started to come in with the new style jack.

I changed the 30 amp fuse in the inline fuse holder that was in the battery box and all is well, for now.

I had a 30a inline fuse blow on my landing gear. I bought a pack of 30a SB (slow blow) and have never had a problem. I taped a few to the motor handle so I don't have to go looking but so far have not had occasion to need one.

Has anyone installed a breaker there? I was thinking about doing it, but I have a fistfull of 30a fuses, and I've only blown one. There exists a breaker that fits in the 30a fuse slot, but the plastic holder that comes from Jayco is not big enough for it (it is a little wider).

I don't know what the new style jack has, but the old style shown in the photo that the OP posted has an internal 20A circuit breaker. If the breaker trips it will reset in about 15 seconds. I have tripped mine twice and it does reset in about 15 seconds. It will trip if you run out of stroke while raising the trailer. It trips immediately so as not to overheat and damage the motor.

Putting a 30A fuse in series with the breaker will do nothing unless the breaker doesn't trip. I suppose that a fast blow 30A might blow before the breaker trips if the breaker reacts slower than the fuse.

FIC 3500# Electric Tongue Jack is made in china and sold by different distributors under their own brand. Like Ultra-Fab; RAM etc. Sells on Ebay around $125
This unit can be used with a 25-30 amp circuit breaker.
Campingworld sells them also and there you can download a installation/operators manual

I don't mean to high jack this post, but a small tackle box is a great place to carry extra fuses. bulbs,etc. for trailer and Tow Vehicle.
