30 Amp Fuses Blowing

I am a new Jayco owner and I have a question. I seem to be blowing 30 amp fuses at the battery when using the power jack. It usually happens when I try raise an already fully raised jack. I realize I am going the wrong direction with it, but is it normal to blow the fuses that quickly. The guy at make ready blew two fuses himself with the same mistake.
Thanks

Yes. I marked my jack with colored electrical tape just short of fully extended and fully retracted.

I have heard that will do it. My electric on the previous TT had a clutch that would engage when fully retracted (click, click, click...) so I didn't have the issue. The tape sounds like a good idea (also keep a supply of 30A handy).

I'm not sure if it will fit but you may be able to use a circuit breaker in place of the fuse. It will automatically reset itself. They make them in blade style like the fuses.

I looked at the circuit breakers for the in-line fuse for my jack. The trouble is that the blade type ones are actually a little bigger than the fuse itself, so it won't fit in the little rubber boot that is wired into the circuit. So I just carry a fist full of 30A fuses... for now. I have a lot of other mods on my list before I get to that one...

Though I've never had my jack blow the fuse before, and DW used to be really bad at running the jack until it stopped itself. I finally got her trained right so I know we won't blow fuses...
