What model jack do you have, Cheesehead? If its a standard LCI, you should be able to follow the red power wire beneath the jack to locate the fuse. This will be a 30A ATO-type fuse.

^^^ That's a good pic. I was looking to see if I had one to show it clearly, but this one is better.

Triguy & Fonzie,
Thanks for your replies. I don't know the make of my jack. I took a picture but don't know how to post it. Maybe I did it. Is the rectangular piece the fuse? Click image for larger version

Fuse to tongue jack

That jack is called a Jack Quick.

Is that box a breaker? The jacks I've seen use a 30 amp slow blow fuse somewhere inline. I take it you don't see one?

I probably should have asked in my first post, but what's the problem with the jack?

Thanks Triguy. You are correct that I can't find any inline fuse. The rectangular item is inside the housing for the jack and is connected to the jack switch. May have to resort to taking it in and having a dealer help me. Appreciate the feedback.

The silver box inline with the power lead in your picture looks like a resettable circuit breaker.
Look closely all the way around it for a small button. Usually it can be reset by pushing it back into the housing.

it is worth a try.
Good luck.

Another thing you might try if you are brave is to bypass the device by wrapping wire around the screw terminals temporarily. This will bypass the automatic breaker allowing temporary use of the jack.

Just remember you will be bypassing the fuse which is designed to prevent the wiring from overheating and melting somewhere with possibly a fire as a result, however if the device operated due to a temporary overload like the jack being held at its limit while operating, there will probably be no issue in this test.

Good luck.
