1st Trip out and two problems

We just returned from our first trip in our new 27RLWS. We had a good time even with rainy weather. We did have two issues. First is a water leak on the back of the water heater. Right where the red tube (hot water out?) meets the brass fixture. It's a slow drip but a leak nonetheless. I will return to the dealer for a warranty repair. Click image for larger version

ID:	71718Second issue was with the electric stabilzers. As we were packing to leave we retracted the stabilizers simultaneously. The front came all the way up and the back came up about 2/3'rds then stopped. I got no response from either set after that. I checked all the fuses, none were showing the red light, indicating a blown fuse. I checked the three down by the battery all were good. I was of of shore power at that time. I attempted to reset the system by turning the battery disconnect off and back on. No luck there. I'm stumped! Any help would be appreciated.

My brother's stopped once and reset themselves after a while. I think he found out the electric motors has overload shutoffs built in. Or something like that. Hope yours get corrected that easily

Check actual fuse in the panel by pulling it out, don't rely on red light.

Found a blown 20amp fuse. Replaced it but the jacks are still not working. Will they run on battery power?

You were correct. The blown fuse did not have the red light on display as the PDI told me it would. Thanks

Yes these should run on battery or/and shore power.

So they still did not work after replacing the fuse. I will have the dealer look at them when I take it in for the water heater leak. Thanks.
