Landing gear/br slide/rear stabilizer

I posted this on the general 5th wheel site before I noticed this sub site, so I am reposting here since I have a Columbus by palomino 295RL 5th wheel.

I encountered a problem yesterday on my Columbus 5th wheel 29RL. After a days travel I couldn't get my landing gear to work, or my br slide, or rear stabilizer. Main 2 slides worked fine along with everything else...I could only find one 30 amp inline fuse from the landing gear and it was fine.. any suggestions?

Are all three slides hydraulic, or is only the BR slide electric? I don't know your unit, but I'm guessing your landing gear, BR slide and stabs are all on the same circuit. Look inside the converter panel for a 12v fuse related to a control for those systems that could have overloaded the fuse. I'm assuming the 30a fuse you found is self-resetting, but they too can fail. You could try by-passing it temporarily.

I tried all the fuses I could find in the main panel, dont know where else to look...I tend to agree they might be on a circuit together. At a loss of where else to look.

I assumed you found and checked a 30a resettable fuse/link outside the main panel. Again, not knowing your layout, and assuming all three devices are on the same circuit, I'd look for a fuse between the battery and the front jacks. It's probably easier to jump 12v directly from the battery to the jack motor. If it works, there's a fuse, probably cleverly hidden.

Yea, I found a 30 amp near the battery which is not blown. With no other obvious breakers or fuses, I'm trying to find a mobile repairman to help me out. Thx for your input!
