Landing gear power failure

My front landing gear only works manually now. The main switch does nothing, the remote does nothing. Motor works if I connect direct to battery. I checked the fuses under the fridge, all good, where else can I look?

Can only see one 30amp fuse near the battery disconnect. It appears fine. Should there be another for the landing gear?

There has got to be a relay somewhere since the switch or remote does not work. Not to say that it's the problem, could be a wire loose/broken somewhere.There is a panel on the left inside the door side storage compartment that may be worth looking into.
I only looked into mine once to see what was in there. The control panel that controls all the remote stuff is in there.

I checked in the compartment where RRYMAN suggested. Thats where the problem was. The wired connections were tight, however one 40amp fuse was very loose. I twisted the spades on it slightly so that it would fit snug. That solved the problem. Landing gear is back working as it should. Thanks for the help fellas.

Good job trouble shooting. Glad you got it fixed. I've got about the same unit, so if it happens to me, I'll know where to start looking.
By the way, when we got our unit, the remote wouldn't work anything. I thought since it was a 2014 model, the batteries couldn't possibly be dead. someone on here suggested I change batteries. I did and it worked.

Glad you found it. I was mulling asking you what type rig you have, fifth wheel or tt when you fixed it.

It may help to clarify or put that info in your sig for better/ accurate responses.
