Roo 23SS 30 Amp Fuse to slide keeps blowing.

We have a new 2015 Rockwood Roo 23SS. We lost power to the slide after our first camping trip but found an archived thread here that led us to discover it was the 30 amp fuse located under the front of the trailer: No power to slide out.

Just tonight when we were bringing the slide in again, the same fuse blew. It only seems to happen when we're bringing the slide in. Any thoughts as to what may be causing this? The fix is easy enough but obviously it shouldn't be happening in the first place.

Thanks.

If it's occurring at the end of the slide travel, if the switch is held for just a little to long, the fuse blows before the override clutch works. I had the same issue when ours was brand new, blew twice while camping in the driveway. Replaced with the 30 amp auto resetting circuit breaker, no issues since.
BTW, welcome to the forum! There's a wealth of info here.

Any auto parts store should have them located where they have the fuses. You want the one with the longer blades so it will fit in the green fuse holder, looks like this one....

Thanks, Jimandchris. We're heading out for another trip this week-end. Will stop by an auto parts store and pick one up.

Thanks for the welcome. Have found lots of good advice here already.

we have a 2007 Roo 23SS and after 8+ years without any slideout issues, this last March, ours started blowing fuses.
couldn't find a reason and we were on a 5 week camping trip. so i just kept replacing them until we got home.
then during the last 3 days of the trip, it stopped blowing them.
just did a 4 day trip and it still is working fine.

still haven't found any reason for it.

Same general issue with fuse. Solution - auto resetting fuse. Not a problem since.

slide out question specifically for 2014 23ss

Have not had this problem yet but would like to know what to do when I do... and you know it is going to happen at the worst possible time and place. How do I manually retract the slide out?

under the sofa. bottom kick pulls off(Velcro) and there is a manual turn fitting. my turn crank was in the back storage bay accessible from under rear bunk or outside under bunk.

Didn't the dealership show you how to do it, during the PDI for your 23SS?
Mine showed me the manual crank and where to attach it under the sofa.
My crank was stored behind the sofa.
