Power Jacks

I Have a 2013 Surveyor with a power jack, (model #1817941 today I used it so I could go to my RV dealer for a problem with my awning struts not working. When I wanted to un-hook my trailer in my driveway the power jack won't work. I tried the light on the jack, and it isn't working either. I looked at the fuse panel, but there is nothing that indicates that there is a fuse for the jack. The trailer is plugged in, so the battery should not be the issue.

Any ideas how to get this to work, I am leaving on vacation Wednesday. I have lower the jack manually.

There should be an in line fuse/ circuit breaker and possibly resetable.
Follow the power wire from the jack to the battery.

The ones I have installed use a circuit breaker. Like stated already above, follow the power wire to find an in line fuse. In a pinch pop out the plug on top and use the manual crank handle.

My trailer has an inline "cocoon" fuse holder. About 2-3 times per year, I have to twist the wires going into it to re-establish contact.

Thanks everyone. I was looking in the fuse box, didn't realize the power line had a plug with fuse. The fuse seems to be dead, so a trip to the hardware store tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for their helpful suggestions.

Must be the day to have electric jack problems. DH was unhooking today and ours wouldn't work either. Fuse had blown.

Good deal. Go ahead and get a multi pack with wide range of amps. You'll be glad you did.

Just checked with my son, he said that it actually didn't blow but the ends were not soldered good. Just bad fuse.
