Rockwood 8286WS circuit breaker

Does anyone have any idea what the amp rating for the 2 circuit breakers by the battery box are? I have one, that controls the front landing gear and the bedroom slide, not working. I do not see a reset button. If it is an auto reset breaker, how does it work? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Reset button is there-------

I have the same model, you have to feel on the very bottom of the circuit breaker (gray), there is a very small button that you need to push up on to reset the breaker. It takes some feeling to find it.

I have a similar camper (5th wheel with 2 main slides) while I had 3 30 amp blade fuses in those holders. Two green (slides) and one black (landing Gear) all were 30 amps.

I changed them all to 30 amp automatic reset current limiters.
Make SURE you get the LONG LEG ones.
Be careful you do NOT break off any of the segmented legs!
Pop out the old fuses and CAREFULLY insert the new ones.
You will not be able to close the caps on the fuse holders with the auto reset limiters in place, so tape them in with electricians tape.
