My 2017 265RLSW has a 30 amp fuse at the battery. The Jayco owners manual also recommends when possible to operate the slide when you have the trailer plugged into the 120VAC service. When camping I値l operate the slide after I知 plugged in or bring the slide in before I unplug. This may not be possible if you池e camping in remote locations without 120VAC service. Call the dealer to verify the fuse size but I知 thinking it might be a 30amp fuse.

30 Amp Fuse: New Circuit Breaker

X2 on the30 amp fuse. After having to check mine in the dark one time someone of the forum said they installed a 30 amp breaker. I liked the idea and it is so much easier. Here is the one I purchased from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Very simple to install, it is mounted on the junction box at the front of the trailer.

I installed a 30 amp breaker on mine and very happy with it. A matter of convenience as was the rotary switch to isolate the battery.
