I know exactly how you feel. This is a great forum and I have learned so much using it.

It's all a learning curve! Now you will never forget where that fuse is!! I had this happen to me once as well and Google was my friend!!! Glad you figured it out, I know the stresses of not knowing how to fix something right when it happens!!

Glad things are working properly.
Interesting you have two circuit breakers and I have one.

Bottom line is try not to run the pump without being connected to shore power or generator. That way your battery charger is always helping to maintain 12 volts DC. If the voltage in the batteries get low it will hurt the pump motor.
Also try to wait a minute between retracting each slide as well as the leveling system.
This way the motor won't over heat which also causes premature failure.

Have fun!

There are about 10 automotive blade style fuses inside this box, and none of them are labeled as to their function.

After topping up the hydraulic fluid (Dexron/Mercon automatic transmission fluid), resetting the black circuit breaker on the chassis frame near the pump, and replacing a blown 5 amp and 15 amp fuse in the box near the batteries, all was well again.

Two questions for the group:

1. Does anyone have a list showing the circuits protected by the fuses in the box near the batteries?

2. Does anyone know the location of the Lippert leveling control module? Lippert says it should be attached to a basement compartment ceiling, but I have not found it. There is a blocked pass through area for slide out power cables and LP hose, that's about the only place left that I can think of. Thanks.Attachment 53143
That computer I believe was under the dash, its sets what is level among other features. Must admit I could never find in in front of the drivers chair, located control panel wire harness and traced it under there also, just too much going on to trace wires.
