Electric rear stabilizers

Just finished shakedown #1.... Only real issue is the rear stabilizers would not lower when we first go there and have no worked since..... Came up ok when we left but now seem to not have power.... No fuses or breakers thrown.... Is there an in line fuse I am missing

2016 Wildcat 312bhx

They might be jammed (for lack of a better word) in the up position. Try pressing down with a foot while holding the EXTEND button.


Mine did that 1 time and this was my remedy.


Some would say that you might have over retracted them when you raised them last.

We had the opposite direction. Replaced the switch and all good. The switch on a Wildwood is quite exposed and especially the rear getting road grit thrown up against it. We carry a spare switch, and have a Lippert remote option that allows us to operate the stabilizers.

Check visually for burnt fuse in distribution panel, do not rely on red led light next to it.....

There is probably an external fuse under the tongue near the battery.

I put a cover over my switches.

If the pressure/foot test didn't work, on to the fuse box...

I would check the switch. Maybe defective or just a loose wire. Later RJd
