Rockwood 2604 slide out

I have a 2010 Rockwood 2604 and the problem I have is all of a sudden when I put the slide out in or out, when it reaches its full extension or retraction, the 30 amp fuse on the trailer tongue blows. It just started doing this. Motor overloading? It does not blow the fuse while the slide is in motion. Any suggestions?

Does the slide motor clutch disengage when the slides is fully in or out? Are you still pushing the slide control button any length of time after the slide is fully in or out?

Try using a self resetting circuit breaker. Of the same amp.
All of mine have been switched over .

I hold the rocker switch until slide stops,then release. I don't know if the clutch does disengage. Should I be able to hear it?

It should make a 'ratcheting' noise when the clutch disengages. I try to minimize the amount of 'ratcheting' it makes. If the clutch isn't disengaging, the motor load will rise when the slide comes to a physical stop then blows the fuse. The same thing happens with you run the stabilizers (or landing gear in 5th wheel) all the way to the stop...the fuse blows.

As mentioned early by turbo, replacing the fuse with a auto-resetting circuit breaker will work. I'd be concerned though if the slide drive clutch isn't disengaging.
