Rear stabilizer jacks stopped working

I have the electric rear stabilizer jacks on my '10 27BH FW. They worked find and the other day, they just stopped working. I have checked all my fuses and breakers and everything is fine.

I've been using the manual feature to crank them up and down.

I have removed the electric motor and inspected it and then replaced it and that looks fine.

Any thoughts on where I should begin? I'd like to do as much as I can before I bring it in to the shop.

I had the same problem with my Surveyor. Turns out there was an inline fuse that I was not informed about. Mine had the wrong fuse based on the electric motor, and had to be upgraded.

Ask your dealer about any inline fuses on your jacks.


Good luck!

Was it hidden somewhere. I've checked all of the exposed wiring and can find no in-line fuse. But the wiring goes into some concealled areas in the underbelly that I can't easily access.

I recently had the same issue with my jacks, awning and slide. I searched forever and finally called a dealer and the told me there was a 20amp inline fuse behind the panel under the fridge. happened a couple more times so I replaced the fuse with a breaker.

Did you infact check to see if you even had voltage to the jacks
I would think one would start there.

I would absolutely look here first.

It wasn't really hidden, just out of sight. My inline fuse was tucked up under the frame which made it harder to find, especially in the dark on a rainy night. I hope you have better luck!

Don't know about your camper but my rear electric stabilzer jacks were fused in the panel (yours could be behind the panel in an inline fuse holder) AND had a resetting fuse near the outside UP/DOWN switch.
