Have a service call scheduled in a couple of weeks. I can manage the manual raise/lower for the couple of trips I have planned until then. If it is fried, I'm still under warranty (hopefully I'll get an upgraded jack)

I Installed a ground wire of the same size as the positive wire directly to the drive motor and connected directly to the battery. The power jack will be more trouble free. A bad ground will kill the motor quickly as the windings will heat up.

Ours quit working last year, but it was just the switch. It is not waterproof, and corroded inside. Now I keep a bucket over the jack to keep it dry.

mwcramer93, you probably blew the 30 amp fuse as many have reported here on the forums. It happens when you extend the jack all the way up or down. I've been lucky and not had it happen to us yet, but I carry spare fuses for the time it does. Hope this helps you.

The 30 am fuse in the panel box? Or is it an inline fuse?

Thanks

It is an inline fuse. I keep extra fuses on hand as this is an issue with this electric tongue jack.

Thanks guys. I'll give it a shot tomorrow.

What's the easiest way to go about fixing this problem?

I blew the in line fuse 3 times before I figured out that I was retracting the jack too much after hitching up. I now pay attention to the red line on the jack leg a little closer and have had no problems since.

By far the easiest way is to not extend the jack too far.... like MtBiker that's what I do. BUT, I do have several spare fuses 'just in case.'

There are resettable 30 amp circuit breakers that could be installed to replace the fuse.
