I've read as many threads I could find on this subject.
I'm about ready to take these electric stabilizers off and replace them with scissor jacks. At least I know they'll work when I do.
Leaving on a trip in a few weeks so I thought I'd do a little testing to see if everything was working. Plugged my umbilical cord into the truck to check the running and brake lights. Good.
Had some friends over about a month ago that wanted to see inside the TT, so before they went in, I lowered the stabs to keep the rocking to a minimum. The stabs have been down for about a month. We've been in/out working on things and cleaning. This a.m., the stabs wouldn't go up/down, nothing. Not even a grunt!
I've checked all the fuses, breakers, current limiters I could find. There is no power getting to the switch.
From Lippert manual:
To manually operate the stabilizer jack, one of the
wire leads from the motor must be disconnected to prevent backloading themotor and causing more damage.
Could I not just take the negative cable off the battery post?
I'm getting continuity thru the switch when I push the button up/down so I believe the switch is good. Found the fuse to the switch behind a false wall and it showed continuity. There is no power coming from the power cable to the switch. Looked behind the breaker box/converter, under the fridge and had a maze of wires but none that had a fuse except a 30 amp fuse labeled heater.
I'm seriously thinking of taking them off and putting scissor jacks in their place. 1 less electrical thing to worry about.
Anybody have any suggestions.
