New Trailer.....No Power!

New Jayco owner! Just brought our new X19H home from the dealer. Drive was easy, the walk through was.....adequate. It has a power tongue jack which I thought was cool. Got home, started to unhook, unplugged from my van, started to lift up the jack to unhook the bars, hit the top of the extension and power cut. Now I have no 12v power anywhere in the trailer. I was able to hook the 7 pin back to the van to get some power to get it unhitched and leveled again. I called the dealer and they said if you hit the top of the extension on the power jack it will blow the 30A fuse. I pulled all the fuses in the box inside and they all look fine. The dealer said there may be another 30A fuse underneath the trailer and just follow the black wire, but I can't find anything. They also said there is no battery shut off to this trailer. I know I am a total noob but I can't see how I broke a trailer 10 minutes after getting home haha. Or, maybe I can. Perhaps I am supposed to leave it plugged into the tow vehicle or 30A any time I am using the power jack. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Mine has an inline fuse on the positive line coming off the battery. It was approximately 18" from the battery box

X2 - on my 23RLSW model it's a little rectangular black fitting, soon after the battery. This is one of the most frequent issues we hear from newbies, sad to say! Apparently you'll blow the fuse when you hit maximum or minimum extension of the power jack.

Thank you! Does it look like a little black box with wires going in and coming out of it? Can you unscrew it to get to the fuse? And, is it a normal 12v 30A fuse that I can just pull out and put a new one in?

This is what it looks like on my 26BH. There is a cover that pulls off and there is a 30A fuse inside.

Just got my first trailer. This was a problem for me as well. The fuse for mine was tucked away a bit and not obvious. Get some extra 30 amp fuses, you blow will it again!! Search the forum, some have replaced the fuse with a circuit breaker.

That fuse will blow if you run that jack completely up, stop when it is clear from the ground and up high enough. There should be a line on the jack shaft coming down that shows you the top.
Add a few of those fuses to you tool kit that you will carry with you.

I fully retract my electric jack when I'm through with it after hitching up. I have done this for years and never blown a fuse. Can someone explain the difference between my situation and at the OP's?

Make sure you use slow blow fuses, this is what most jacks come with. They allow
a surge over 30 amps for a short duration without blowing, a regular fuse will blow when the jack draws to much power at the end of stroke. These are hard to find at part stores or dealers, I had to order online.

Sundancer - Very helpful. If that fuse ever does blow, I'll avoid using an inadequate replacement!
