Chaparal landing gear breaker

I have a Coachmen Chaparal 280RLS fifth wheel. My landing gear quit while raising off the truck. . I had to manually crank the jacks. I figured the fuse or breaker might have blown, so I started tracing the wires back and I couldn't find the location of the fuse or breaker.
The extend/retract switch has a rubber boot around it. I wiggled the switch and pressed the sides of the rubber boot. Then, the gear started working again. So, I don't know if I accidentally reset a breaker moulded into the rubber boot, or if I have a bad switch/connection. So, I know that if there's a fuse, the problem is in the switch (because I never swapped it out) An any case, can anyone tell me if there is a fuse, or a breaker, and its location?

Thanks so much.

On my 2012 V-Cross fiver there is a 30 AMP fuse on the wireing very near the landing gear motor. I have been told that this place is common. I would try looking there first. On my first trip I had to replace that fuse. Good Luck

Check your wiring at the switch.
