Rear Stab Electrical Problem

First time on site.
Have a new 8280 and the rear jacks wouldnt retract. Used the handle to retract and the next time they powered down ok. Had to use handle to retract again. Now wont work in either direction.Pulled sw. out and have good 12 volts to it. Couldnt find the " inline 6 amp c/b" thats mentioned in manual. Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.
Allen

There should be two wires going to the motor.
The polarity of the motor determines the direction of rotation.

The switch may be bad or have a lose connection.

There should be a fuse in the power center labeled "STAB" or something like that.

There might also be a auto resetting circuit breaker near the switch.

There also might be a bad ground where it attaches to the frame.

rear stab problems

Thx Lou
No fuse on panel,couldnt find the 10 second reset 6 amp c/b .behind the switch.
I suspected a bad ground,would explain why it worked after driving for a while,but it means pulling down the underside panels to see where they put it.

My advice is to think of everything you can possibly imagine that would involve taking the panels down and do it all at once.

Even if you are not sure, run pull tapes so if you decide to run 120 volt wires or TV coax or composite/HDMI video you can drag it through using the heavy duty pull tapes.
