Your problem is a known one and there are other threads on here discussing it. It's a defect. I own a brand new 23 SS too. Yup blew the fuse first time I operated the slide out. Others report blowing the fuse during their PDI at the lot. Once the slide creates a load on the motor it can blow the fuse. No way to avoid it because you need to run the slide out to the end and then suck it in tight right. Go to a speciality auto parts store and find an auto resetting fuse. It will break and then reset itself - save on buying fuses and crawling underneath the trailer. The only issue is that these fuses are a little fat and don't fit into the rubber holder so you'll have to wrap it some how to make it water proof. Should fix your issue. Don't think it's related to your AC outlet.

Had same problem with our Roo 25RS plugged in at home, I changed my extension cord to a 12 gauge and "knock on wood" hasn't happened again.

We have a 2012 23ss and had a lot of "newbie"
issues last year with our trailer when connected to shore power. Turned out we were given the wrong or defective power cord --- got it replaced under warranty and now things work great! Maybe this helps others here? Just thought I would mention it.

We had it happen the first weekend we used are Roo. I went ahead and replaced the fuse and it has never blown again. The dealer looked at it and couldn't get it to blow.. The service manger said it seems like it happens on every FR trailer.

I've blown the 30A fuse on both the power tongue jack and the slide out.....not sure why. I carry a couple of 30A fuses (Green) in case it happens again. It hasn't happened latley.

Probably best to buy a resettable fuse as mentioned and you won't have to worry about crawling under the trailer to replace a fuse.

Well so far it's only been the 15 amp under the fridge that's blown, I haven't checked or thought about checking the one underneath ....

Well, so far so good.... I checked the 30amp under the front... Blown, replaced that and we have been smooth sailing this weekend. Fingers crossed that it continues. Thanks for all the ideas and help everyone

Well just got back from the dealer. I took in the Roo just to make sure I was correct with the fuse issue. Turns out, the slide out was out on the same circuit as the; power awning, porch light, water pump and two other things (I forgot what they were). So slide out and 5 other things tied to the same circuit = blown fuses ..... Things are peachy now! Smooth sailing
