Front stabilizer stopped working

Hello Vibe owners!
I have a 2016 Vibe 268RKS. Our front stabilizers have stopped working. Originally we found a fuse that went bad, we replaced it, and it was fine. Now the problem has happened again, and the fuses are not broken. I was wondering if any of you have had this issue, and if you could give me any info on where to go from here.

Thank you!

Cyndi

If it popped a fuse chances are the motor is going out or some wires are exposed and got moisture. Check the little connections right there at the motor, if they seem fine try changing the motor or swap it with the rear one (This is what I would do). But if it's under warranty take it in or call Forest River and ask them about it.

I have had this on my 272bhs. What happens on mine is the stabilizers get stuck. I take the manual crank and start them going down, and once they are "broken loose" the motor works just fine the rest of the way!

X2 agreed! If you retract the stabilizers up too tight they have tendency to get stuck, and will pop a fuse as well. What I have found is not to retract them all the way up. We learned this on our first outing as well using the "new-to-us" electrical stabilizers.

Never a problem thereafter!

Two times

We had ours go out twice. Dealer fixed both times. I asked the technician what the problem was and he said the crimped wire connection came loose. We used the funny looking handle to lower it for one trip. Folks said that could feed electrical energy back thru the system and do damage. Guess we were lucky.
