Thumbs down Landing Gear Quit working on 2015 Hemisphere 286RLT - Help

I was leveling the rig with the front switch when I remembered the remote. When I tried using the remote the landing gear didn't work! Then I went back to the front switch and it no longer worked either! What's up? Appreciate any help on this. Thanks.

Not sure what happened but try pulling the battery wire off for a few seconds and then reinstall. This may reboot the controls and let you at least go back to using the switch. If that doesn't work you may start looking for a fuse somewhere.

Landing gear quit working on Hemisphere 286RLT

Update:

I started checking out the wiring and looking for a fuse - I haven't seen such a wiring mess as is on the back of the Extend/Retract switch. Just full of wires. Anyhow, found a 30 amp fuse inline (blown) and replaced. Also found a wire bundle twist with loose wires - tightened the wire nut and it is now WORKING!



Thanks for the help.

Thanks SunnyinFla (grew up in WPB & Lake Worth). Good info here - I like the idea of the access door. I saw that panel opened up at the dealers with the circuit board & all back there. Now I have to stock up on 30 amp fuses, just in case!

2Vals, I went to hitch up the 5er at the storage facility and with a full charge on both batteries, there was a blank display on the leveling panel. I was able to make the legs extend or retract in order to hitch. Also, the Lincpad would not activate the legs at all. I called the dealer and made an appointment to bring it in as several things need attention while still in warranty. They told me it could be a fuse or the control box mounted on the ceiling of the front storage are is probably dead. I traced down the fuse in the battery area on the side of the trailer and it was good. I had power at the control box and I could make each leg extend or retract, but still had no display on the panel. I finally found that the wires that go from the panel to the control box connector was not fully seated at the control box. Bingo! It was again working properly. It was not completely clicked into it's socket of the control box from the factory. After it was again plugged in, the tablet would control the legs. It also takes a while for the router to recognize the tablet. I hope this helps you or others!

Thanks for the help.
I was reviewing this and realized I hadn't given the fuse location (for any who have the same problem). Anyway, it is located behind about middle of the 'garage' door in front of the RV near the square drive rod for the landing gear. Hope this helps.
