2019 Arctic Wolf 5th Wheel Landing Gear

So I moved my 5er this weekend for the first time since bringing it home. I got it to my spot and the landing gear button in the front (outside by the hitch are) failed to operate. I was unable to drop the landing gear to remove the trailer from the truck.

I was able to use the panel inside thankfully, so I got everything set up and working, but I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on what I can look at to figure why the outside landing gear button is not working?

My assumption is a wire rattled loose or something, but there are so many wires under this thing I am not sure where to start.

Thanks In Advance.

I have a cheap 5er with electric/mechanical front jacks. No switch inside, but I would start with the switch thatís inoperable. One might disconnect the battery before working on it(and the shore power).

Found a blown fuse. Just need to replace and see if they keep blowing or was just bad fuse.

Look closely at the fuse. It will tell you what happened. A clean separation of the metal inside will usually indicate an overload and it melted as designed. A "Burn" spot at the point of separation...usually very visible BURN...indicates a "Dead Short" and will require further investigation.
