Slide Out Fuses Blown??????

I have a Rockwood 8281WS Ultralite fifth wheel and using the slide outs today they quit. Everything other electrical switch works except the slide out switches. I am assuming the fuse is blown but where in the world is it located?????? I checked all the fuses beneath the fridge and they are all good. I also looked around the battery area but could not see a fuse anywhere. If anybody knows where it is located would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Cmd951,

Just had this happen to me on my Roo. look under front of unit under area where frame goes under body form tongue. Look for a green in line fuse (30 amp) near a metal junction box. That's the fuse that's blown.

Look just-------------

Look just behind the battery box, follow the red cable from the battery. There should be two circuit breakers just behind the battery box. Feel around the breakers for the small reset button.

Good luck

It will look something like one of these. The first two pics are resettable breakers. The third is a pic of a 30amp fuse...

The two circuit breakers that you've pictured are the self-resetting type. They operate with a bi-metal reed that returns to the ON position when it cools down after tripping.

There are manually reset breakers that appear very similar, but they normally have a button between the two posts that must be pushed to reset them.

Not sure if related but last fall my wardrobe slide stopped working. Everything else was fine. Dealer spent 3 hours looking until I told them to try finding the fuse behind the fuse box (thanks to herk). Bingo. Thats where it was.

Hope they did not charge 3 hours for "troubleshooting"

On my flagstaff my slide out fuse was inside the central "household" electrical box just under the trailer.
In your case up by the pin box.

But I'm with triguy look real close in the battery area.
