Same thing just happened to me with my 2015 X213 put a 25a in because that's what I had on hand, that blew right away with the jack. Ran and got a package of 30a and all seems well for now.

I think I would put a resettable fuse in there.

Usually that fuse will blow if the up or down button is depressed after the jack reaches it's upper or lower limit.

Most carry a few of the correct fuse and keep it handy cause it can happen.

Hope that is all it was.

I was warned by the dealer when I bought my trailer not to run the jack to its full travel as it will blow the fuses. He also advised that I should leave the trailer plugged in to the truck when using the jack as to not draw from the trailer battery alone.

Wonder what would happen if you eliminated the fuse? Anyone know? Burn the motor up?

I think I know what I'm doing this weekend - even though it doesn't happen often anymore doesn't mean my kid won't run into the stop while helping me (or I choose to not pay attention to the task at hand...)!

Melt the wire / start a fire.

That's why they put fuses in there in the first place!

I looked at putting a breaker in there instead of the fuse, but the one I found wouldn't work and I didn't want to re-wire it. It installs directly where the fuse would go in the fuse holder, but my fuse holder wouldn't allow for the extra width of the breaker.

I VERY rarely ever pop that fuse anymore now that I know what causes it to blow, so I just keep extras in the trailer and truck.

Edit: If I were popping that fuse all the time, I would wire in a breaker.
