Electric Jacks

I am presently out on my wife's and mine first camping trip of the year with our new T.T. Here is my question, neither the front or back electric jack are operating. Maybe one, but both?? This would fall under my warranty, but I am bugged about it and wondered if anyone had any suggestions that I could look at to see if I could save myself and trip to the dealer. Both of the jacks worked fine at home, right up to the time we left. Any suggestions would be helpful. i did not see a fuse for the jacks, in the fuse box compartment.

There are Fuses in the panel for the Jacks,F/R also places fuses "Other" places at times? Check/replace some fuses in your Power Center and you should/will have "Jacks" agin! Youroo!!

Follow the positive battery cable off the battery to a resettable circuit breaker .
It'll have a red cover on it.

Does your unit have a remote for the stabilizers? If so, try that.

Is the battery disconnect on?
Is the battery fully charged?

Are you hooked to shore power?

The fuses for our jacks are in the wire looms behind the battery.

Come to find out that a 30amp fuse was at the bottom of the fuse box. Once I put it back in the jacks work fine. Thanks for the suggestions, I am now a HAPPY CAMPER! This forum is excellent in getting help.
PS. Don't know how the fuse came out, but it is fixed.

Jumping on this looking for info....
I have a 2015 Silverback that has the rear ELECTRIC MOTOR STABILIZER JACKS. They are SCISSOR in operating function. They extend and retract at each side simultaneously.
NOW THE ISSUE:
When retracting the last time A PART THAT LOOKS TO BE A COMPONENT OF THE SMALL ELECTRIC MOTOR, seems to NOT ENGAGE and therefore the direct contact from the electric motor to the APPROX; 1/2 inch screw rod into the motor housing DOES NOT ENGAGE. I am GUESSING that since the motor is functional, the part I am referring to must have some sort of bearing that stripped.
The system has a manual over ride that I do not need to use at this time.
Anyone that has experience; comment please.
I am NOT stuck anyplace so no issue on that.
Tnx.
