Fuse location on flagstaff fifth wheel 28bhws

Our bedroom slide and front jacks will not work, manually lowered the jacks but can't see where to manually crank the bedroom slide. Also told there is a 30 amp fuse in the front compartment where the batteries are but can not find it. Any suggestions? This is all new to us!

Trace the wiring from the battery box. There'll be a 30A in-line fuse on the power wire to the front landing gear motor. Should also be either fuses or relays on the wiring feeding the slide motor.

The 30A fuse for the landing gear blows when you run inadvertently run the landing gear up into the stop. Some have replaced this fuse with a 30A auto-resetting relay.

I had trouble with my front slide on a Flagstaff 8528RLWS. Found the 30A fuse behind the fuse box/inverter. Before removing the inverter make sure all power is off(disconnect battery and unplug from shore power).
Good luck

The slide and landing gear fuses were single blow and located BEHIND the battery box in my 5th wheel. I initially replaced them with auto-resetting ones from the auto store; then I relocated them so I could see them when I rewired the battery compartment.

The green wires are for my slides and the orange wire is for the front landing gear.
