Slideouts not responding

Hello... I have a 2010 Keystone cougar. I was using the front Jacks to help level the 5th wheel out.
They stopped, as if a fuse or something had blown, and are now unresponsive.
This also caused the slide outs to become unresponsive as well.
I do not appear to be getting power to the switchs inside the RV that control the slides.

I can't for the life of me find any sort of simple fuse problem or locate a resetable fuse/breaker near the battery.

I have attached an Image... wondering what this thing is called and if it could be the problem. It has power going to it but nowhere else off of it.

I have no idea if Keystone RV's are built similar to Forest River RV's (but I would assume they are)

If so, then you may find a resettable fuse (aka 12 volt circuit breaker). This thread may help show you what/where it could be.

Well the first thing I saw was the plastic housing melted and deformed where the main power comes in!! something is seriously wrong there!
You should not be able to see the electronic parts!!!

That doesn't look burnt to me. It's just wrinkles in the potting compound that they use.

There should be an external fuse feeding power to that receiver as well as to the manual switches.

Yes the board looks melted/deformed. I would see if you are getting power to the feed wire and see if you are getting power of of that board. If you are getting power to the wire but not out of the board then that board is fried. It definitely looks melted on the main line in side.
