Overhead bunk won't go back up.

I thought I had seen a similar problem posted but, can't find it. My problem is this; our overhead bunk came down nicely. After using for a week of camping I attempted to raise the bunk back up. Nothing. Not even a click. Thinking maybe a breaker switch failed, or a fuse? Anyone know where the breaker, or fuse for the overhead bunk is? Our owners manual has nothing on the bunk.
Any help is appreciated.

There will be a 10 amp fuse outside the coach next to the house batteries. I would check this fuse.

Thanks for the tip FR3-SalesTrainer. Found/replaced the fuse and all is working. Just hope there's not a short somewhere in the line.

We use the fuse to protect the motors that are in the bunk. Mostly what happened was some held the down button longer then needed. The fuse is rated to protect the motors which would cost more to replace. I hope this answers your question.

That it does FR3-SalesTrainer. Makes total sense. We'll be more careful in the future.
Thanks!

I had the fuse on my bunk pop at least 6 times, including when I picked it up. The dealer changed something and it had not popped since with lots of use. I do not know what they changed but they were looking for a short someplace. Be sure to carry a box of 10amp fuses with you until you get it fixed.
