Power tongue jack

Hey
Brought my new RB23 home from a dealer service
Went to put the power tongue Jack down
Had power for a second heard a click and then none Had to manually lower it
I'm assuming it's a fuse but the manual wasn't very helpful as to where to look
Doesn't appear to be on the panel below the sink
Anyone know?
Thanks

Believe it's an inline fuse, possibly along the tongue or near the battery.

There is a 30 amp fuze behind the batteries attached to the frame outside a black junction box. Fuze will blow every time you extend or lower the jack all the way.

Power tongue Jack

Thank the 30 amp was my next question I assume it's an inline glass fuse?
Thanks

Just a standard ATO automotive fuse.

I would go ahead and get a handful of those 30A fuses. Or replace the fuse with a circuit breaker.

I only popped mine a couple times before I learned where to stop the jack. Also, don't reverse directions quickly, that's been known to pop the fuse as well.

I don't worry about this any more though, my new jack has built-in protection AND a manual reset circuit breaker. That was one of my favorite upgrades to the trailer.

I had my tongue jack apart yesterday. The owners manual states there is a 20 amp circuit breaker inside that takes about 15 seconds to reset. It's there, I saw it. Funny how the 30 amp fuse blows first, though.

I had the same problem first time out with my new 27RLS. I also had to break out the hand crank to get it home. The fuses checked out fine but no power was going to the jack. Several of the wires were joined by an acorn nut near the frame/battery case area and it was not a good connection. I removed the nut and did a better job connecting the wires. Problem was solved. Guess the factory was in a hurry... If all else fails check the connection there.

I got tired of changing the fuses all the time on mine so I replaced it with a circuit breaker I found on Amazon. Now I just flip the switch when it pops.
