Front power stabilizers blowing 15amp fuse

When I retract my front stabilizers, it blows a 15amp fuse. It seems like the fuse blows when the stabilizers get fully retracted. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

First time I brought mine up I guess I ran them to far and "bumped" the motor. Fuse blew right away. Replaced it and stop the stabilizers just short of hitting the frame and motor. Haven't had an issue since.

Replace the fuse with an auto-reset circuit breaker - problem solved. This has been discussed previously and is a fairly common complaint. It is caused by the stabilizer motor(s) coming up against the stop but power still being applied causing an over-current situation.
