I have a Flagstaff MicroLite RV. I have learned that too much weight on the slide-out will often blow the 30 amp inline fuse, whether extending or retracting the slide-out. Minimizing the weight will make the fuse last longer; an electrical engineering friend of mine calls it a design defect because the slightest interference with the slide-out's travel will blow the fuse. I keep a package of 30 amp fuses taped to the slide-out for easy access, and a large body pillow to cushion my body underneath the trailer's tongue while replacing the fuse. Happy camping!

Here is the re-settable circuit breaker we used.
I removed the 30A fuse and holder from under the trailer and installed this one in the the hot wire right next to the slide motor (in our case, under the couch).
No more replacing fuses under the trailer, usually when the ground was wet!!

We had the sMe thing happen withe our ROO 21dk the first time out. Took us hour and phone calls to a dealer then FR. No one knew what it was so we ended up calling a mobile RV repaire service. Once he looked at it all it took was the 30 amp fuse. Live and learn.
