electricErear stabilizers stopped working

I have a 2009 Rockwood 8244s fifth wheel. It has electric rear stabilizers which used to work fine but now will not extend when I press the switch. I looked for a fuse but have not been able to find anything. My fifth wheel has an enclosed underbelly which hides most everything underneath (Wish I had never gotten that "feature"). Anybody know what I sould be looking for and where to look for it?

The fuse in my 2010 8526RLWS is an auto-resetting 30 AMP block type fuse located where the wires enter the camper inside the entertainment center cabinet. It is screwed to the floor below the up/down switch mounted in the wall. Yours may only be a blade type and should be replaced with an auto-reseting type.

Thanks. I didn't know about the auto-resetting fuse. I'll have to look into it.

In my Flagstaff, my rear stab jacks are on a blade fuse, and it is not marked on the panel (it was the last/bottom one).

I have a blade fuse in the PDP as well. This is a different one right under the up/down switch. I found it when I was wiring the desktop PC into the AV system. Will post pictures when I get the camper back. It is in for its annual inspection.

Here are the photos:

Thanks - I found it! Sure enough, the last fuse in the panel was it, and it was unmarked. I replaced it and now the stabilizers work. Funny, but I was looking for an in-line fuse in the wiring, like the fuse for the front landing gear, which is located in the wire from the battery to the landing gear motor, just a few inches from the battery. I never expected the fuse for the rear stabilizers, which are activated by a button on the outside of the trailer, would be in the inside fuse panel.

Good to hear you fixed it, and glad I could help. I only found out because our dealer had to remove our rear slide to fix a water leak before we picked ours up, and after we picked it up, the rear jacks were not working. After looking through the panel, I found the unmarked fuse was blown.
