Flagstaff Micro-Lite 18 FBRS - Tacoma Towed

Hello Everyone, It has been almost 5 months since we purchased our Flagstaff Micro-Lite 18 FBRS TT and finally we were able to get some time to take it out on its maiden voyage. Our first camping trip (May 2-9) is at Devils Fork Campground located in Lake Jocassee State Park SC. I towed this camper with a 2012 V6 Tacoma 4x4 Sport with the tow package and it did better than I expected. My only complaint, so far, with the TT was that the slide did not work. After some searching and tracing of the electrical wiring I found near the front of the TT a inline 20 amp fuse that was blown.
I replaced it and the slide seems to be working now. I do worry that I may blow this fuse again because I do not feel that the slide out mechanism is very well designed. I have attached a pic of my set up at Jocassee.

If the fuse blows again, maybe replace with auto resetting circuit breaker.

Out slides are 30amp fuses ad I have blown one already. Did it when I was moving some wires around to get them untangled underneath. Guess I should have pulled the fuse before I started pulling wires off. Good luck with your new TT.
