Man you learn something new everyday.....

I have a power tongue jack and I was not aware of blowing a fuse if you raise the jack too high!

Glad I saw this thread.

I need to put the amp clamp on my jack to see just how close this thing is in normal running current draw to the suggested fuse size. Anyone done that? The question is what is the normal running current on this jack when it's lifting a load.

my jack ratches in the full up or full down position. I have yet to blow a fuse. the + wire is connected directly to the battery, and use one of the jack mounting bolts with a star washer for the -.
