Angry 2017 wildwood stabilizer jacks, awning, and slideout do not work

First trip with my forest river wildwood TT and on our third camp set up the stabilizer jacks, awning, and slideout do not work. Of course the slideout covers the main electrical panel so I cannot see the status of any of the 12 volt fuses, I checked the two inline circuit breakers that are under the trailer on the frame (why in the world are they there?) I pushed their reset buttons and that fixed nothing. I know I have 12 volt power, the tongue jack works along with other 12 volt systems. Problems like this go a long way to ruin a trip.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Hard to answer your question if you can't see the fuses.

If you post your model you may get more replies. If you have one that comes with a remote the is a remote circuit board. The remote board is often hidden in a compartment under the fridge or other odd spot. There are no fuse guides for the trailers, sometime the fuse panels or wires have small labels on them. It is best to have a meter of at least a 12v test light handy.

I flipped the breaker on my Rockwood by trying to extend both slide-outs at the same time. It knocked out the same things you describe.

It took a repairman to show me that the breaker for these items were in the storage space where the battery is, below the bedroom.

Well, my experience was more than three years ago, and memory fades. I went out to look, and couldn't find anything that looked like a switch.

This may sound stupid but first trip, are absolutely sure you have battery power? I think all those things are battery operated.

I had the exact same problem on my Salem. The fuse wasn't in the main fuse panel, but was in the bathroom under a shelf panel that I had to remove to get to. My fuses kept blowing because I was using the remote control while the 12volt inverter for the fridge was turned on. Since turning the inverter on before using the remote I've had no problems.

This same fuse panel on my 2017 Wildwood 27 RLSS is located below the kitchen counter, hear the hot water heater. As stated above, posting your specific model will help.

Edit: on LarryBoy photo fuse 1 is labeled as slide, fuse 4 on mine. Yours may be different.
