Brian Knight is a top notch asset to the Forest River Company. It would be nice if more of the higher up in the company could follow in his footsteps.

Slab Hunter I was one year out of factory warranty with my FR 5th wheel and found my never lube bearings were starting to come apart. A common problem and a safety hazard. My dealer dealt with FR factory and he got and installed new 6000lb axles and easy lube bearings at no cost to me. He was paid by FR to do the work.

Hi Chris. My name is Mike and I have a 2010 Wildcat 31TS fiver. I have a problem with the 12 volt system. I put new batteries in and, just on the batteries, the hydraulics work fine but the other 12 volt things (light, fan, etc) don't. When I plug into the house everything works. I've checked all the fuses and they're OK. However, the led lights on the converter that light up when you pull a fuse don't come on (most don't anyway) when I pull that fuse. I also checked the reverse polarity fuses & they're OK. Any thoughts?? Is the converter screwed?? is offline

There is another one under the pin box under the red cover.

The reset button is on one of the short sides:

It could also be corrosion on the terminals.
A bit of sandpaper may make it all better.

Really! I sent him email about 3 weeks ago and got zero response!

Thanks for the super quick replies. I did find the red rubber covered one that comes directly from the battery. It has a little black button & I pushed it & nothing happens. I can't find one under the slides. I have a Reese 5th Airborne hitch and the truck is not connected. The 12 volt stuff still won't work just off the batteries, but the hydraulic slides work just fine as the power comes directly from the batteries. Any other ideas? is offline

Wildcat 31TS. The slides are hydraulic, work directly off the batteries, and work fine just on battery. is offline

Mine has nothing at the hitch. But down by the pump on mine to the left is a rubber flat that is covering several of those circuit breakers. mine auto reset but yours might not. also need to see if it has a battery disconnect switch some do. check the attached files.
