Bigfoot Levelling Jacks Control Power

Hi All, does anyone know where the control panel for the bigfoot auto levelling jacks gets power from? I believe its from the chassis fuse panel but I don't know which fuse. According to info I have found from the internet and the company manual, they say that the controller gets it power from the chassis battery and the power to run the jacks actually comes from the coach/house battery. Is this correct? any help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers and thanks. P.S. My rig is the 2015 Greyhawk 31 DS.

My 31ss has two fuses tucked in behind the house battery. PITA to get to. My impression is, those fuses control functions that are not affected by the battery disconnect. Might fuse the big foots, I think they fuse the navi/audio system and I know they fuse the electric coach door lock.

Thanks for the replies

Hi all, thanks for the replies. Just confirmed that the bigfoot controller gets it's power from the coach battery when ignition is off and from the chassis battery when ignition is on. I believe this is so the controller can send the jacks an "emergency retract" command when the engine is started. This appears to be a safety mechanism built in to stop from driving away with the jacks extended. Thanks again. Cheers.
