Rear Stab.Jack problem

First time on site
Have a new 8280 and the rear jacks wouldnt retract. Used the handle to retract and the next time they powered down ok. Had to use handle to retract again. Now wont work in either direction.Pulled sw. out and have good 12 volts to it. Couldnt find the " inline 6 amp c/b" thats mentioned in manual. Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.

new trailer...i'd check for voltage with the switch activated. my thoughts are bad switch. can't help on location of fuse but maybe someone else can.
unless they have two fuses, i don't see it working in one direction but not the other with a blown fuse. hate to suggest motor so i would start with the switch. if u can check voltage at the motor while activating the switch, that would remove or reenforce doubt abt a blown fuse between the sw and motor.

Al, if it's the Lippert stabilizer you're dealing with, your issue is familiar to us. Our rear stab too started giving up the ghost little more than four months off the dealer lot. Worked a little - hand crank - work a little more then finally quit completely. The motor was pooched and replaced under warranty.
