Jacks trip breaker

Anyone else having an issue with the hydraulic jacks continually tripping a resettable breaker on the GEORGETOWN. This is a 351DS.
This is a new unit and it has tripped the breaker three-times for no apparent reason
Thanks Steve

Mine was doing it this past week... it seemed like just when they were getting "too high". I moved to a more level spot and they worked fine. Not too sure what really was going on.

The dealer told me it was the box under steps with the fuses, said there was loose wiring that was causing the breaker to trip every time I would put jacks or slides out. After they fixed problem went away.

Agree with Chris. Mine tripped once when trying to level at an extreme angle.

Its an inline fuse/breaker mounted to frame just outside the battery control center under the steps.

Mine is located on the frame above the house batteries in the bay to the right of the door. So, I guess it depends on you year and model.

Mine is a 2006 Georgetown 373
and the tripper is by the batteries under the stairs
look for a "jack knife" type tripper you have push the knife back into the holder.

Mine tripped a few years ago when I was using the the legs too much
to get the coach level. it overheated the pump motor.
I called the company and they told me where to look.
