Designer Landing Gear Not Working

I have a 2010 Jayco Designer 5th wheel. The front landing gear button is dead/not working. Any thoughts on what it might be or how to remedy the problem? It was working fine and we leave it set up at a campground year-round, so the motor is definitely not burned out. Where are the fuses located that control this?

Thoughts?

Can you provide a picture? Would like to see the wires on the backside of the switch. Is it a six lead. Can you check for voltage at the switch. I have had them go bad. Went to the RV Sales and they had a bin full of switches, so I'm presuming their are lot of possible's. Sometime a hard press to one side will cause a bump in the motor to see if you have power. Additionally, I would start at the battery and look for in-line fuse links.

My 2010 Designer has an inline 30A fuse by the batteries on the curb side.

My Eagle has that same 30a fuse and I added a pack nearby with a few spares.

My Eagle has a 30A right by the switch, I know because I blew it once by exceeding the travel limit!

Thanks everybody for the replies. From your responses I know you already know this, but in case anybody else ever has the same problem there are two fuses. One 30A mini fuse inside the propane compartment that leads from the switch to the motor. There is also an additional 15A regular size fuse in the battery compartment that leads out to the motor. For my problem the fuse in the battery compartment was blown. As soon as I replaced it the motor for the front landing legs worked great.

Thanks again!

Minor correction, the additional fuse in the battery compartment is also 30A not 15A.
