RE: Lost Power to Landing Gear and Slides

Sometimes manufacturers sneak in an inline fuse in the oddest places. By inline fuse I mean one that is spliced in somewhere along the run of a wire, and no where near the fuse box. I've seen them tucked out of sight. Just spitballing here... Thanks, there is an inline fuse fed by the dead wire, and when I bypassed the dead wire, it blew. Will look to see if I can find another one. Would sure be nice if they provided a schematic :)

Switch is on. Flipped off and on, no change.

Lost Power to Landing Gear and Slides

Hi all, long post so bear with me as I explain lead up and problems. Manual seitches, lost remote. 2010 Montana Mountaineer 345 DBQ Just took a trip from KC to Corpus. Horrible rough roads. Motor for back stabilizers broke off along the way and is gone, as did the fridge door (not gone :)). Landing gear and slides worked fine to unhook. When hooking up to leave, landing gear was working, went to adjust truck, and wouldn’t work, tried slides and no luck either. Fuses good. On remote board (remote lost). No power on “to manual switches” connections). Jumper used from always + to slides got rooms in, but nothing on landing gear, hand cranked to get on truck. Got home, Found no power to fuse side of remote board switches, a purple wire feeding. Did jumper around and manual slides worked as did landing gear. Cut purple feed and hard connected purple to battery connection, gear and slides worked, then fuse blew. Guessing purple is a switch leg needing it’s own power, but banging my head on the wall. Of course everything’s concealed. Purple feed runs under slides to “nowhere.” Just weird I can jumper slides but not landing gear on board. Makes no sense to me. Not getting full power to lost motor connections either. Know something came loose but where and how to bypass? Thanks in advance for any insight.
