I know I have my main distribution centre and this unit. I didn't know of any others. I found my main tongue fuse in line. As well as those "resettable" units by the stab switch.

But today after putting in the new switch I found I had no power through that. So I soldered and heat shrunk inline fuse holders instead of that.

Not impressed with old setup for Canadian weather.
Trailer is less than a year old and already having electrical issues.
I plan on doing a better upgrade that is more weather proof than this.

Here is the response from a customer service rep for Salem:
The fuses on the multi-function circuit board are located behind the electrical distribution panel. You will have to remove the fuse panel and check the fuses on the board . The tongue jack has a fuse located on the jack itself on the wire that goes to the battery.

I found the problem. It was not a fuse at all. I followed the wires from the stabilizing jack motor up into the bottom of the trailer and began slowly pulling them out. I pulled out a red wire that was not connected to anything. I continued pulling and out came a wire with the auto reset fuse attached, but there was no wire on one of the bolts. I put the red wire on the bolt, hit the switch and the jack works. I found a nut and lock washer that fit the bolt and tightened it on.
Sooo.. apparently the nut was never put on or it was removed for some reason.. New trailer mind you...
