Help - Electric levelling jack motor not running

I have a 2012 Hemisphere 246 RBS and the motor that raises and lowers the front levelling jacks has quit. 15amp fuse in side locker okay. Is there another fuse that could be blown does anyone know or what else could be the problem. Help appreciated

The actual motor assembly died on mine DURING my PDI. They had to replace the whole assembly.

The 15 amp fuse in the power panel is not for the landing gear.

The landing gear 30 amp fuse is located within 18 inches of the battery. (My Flagstaff 5th wheel had the fuse behind the battery box in the front compartment).

Mine blew every time the landing gear was fully retracted and the switch was held more than 1 second. I replaced it with an "auto-resetting" type from the Auto Store.

There is a bulletin from Lippert about putting an auto reset 30 amp fuse instead of a standard one.

When I re-wired my battery compartment I also installed a kill switch. Without power to the landing gear switches it is very hard to steal a 5th wheel or for some kid to push the extend button and crush your rear stabilizers.
