Exclamation Help!! Where is fuse for my hitch power jack?

It seams I have blown a fuse for my trailer hitch jack. No power to jack or light on jack. Is there a fuse that may have blown? Where would it be located on my 2007 Airstream Classic? Thanks.

If its like my 2008 Classic, trace the wire from the jack, I assume its a Superjack. If you don't see it by the frame then it's likely buried in the cable sheath that runs up into the trailer subfloor. I can't find mine from the outside either. Not a convenient place at all. My jack terminates to the positive bus inside the trailer. You may have to disconnect it from the bus and pull it back from the outside a little bit to expose it. Its in a plastic bulb on the wire. Replace it then pull it back into the trailer and reconnect.

When I replaced my Superjack with an Atwood I used a butt connector and electrician tape to connect to the same wire. Luckily my fuse has not blown.

It is located under the A frame, if you follow the wires from the motor. Newer models, moved it up by the motor where you can see it and replace easily. I went through same "panic" when we had our 2006 Safari, and while I was "panicking" trying to purchase a new motor at the AS dealer outside Austin, my wife crawled under the unit A frame, figured out where it was, and called me to buy a fuse instead of a motor! Saved me some money and stress for sure...now I always carry 10 of those little buggers from Amazon, since even the newer models can blow when you stress the motor., which still happens when I flip the switch the wrong way.. (but, it only happens every "now and then"!) LoL

Mine is located right on the side of the jack in the power line. 30 amp slow blow available from NAPA.

I have had 2 different brand trailers with 2 different brand jacks.
The fuse was in the same location on both- in the hot wire to the battery just inside the a-frame on the driver's side.
I just installed a new Super Jack and put the fuse in approximately the same location.
The fuse holder is originally yellow, but Airstream paints them that dark charcoal/black color when they paint the trailer frame. I have a yellow one again.

I've got a question for all out there that blow the fuse on your jack. Do you run it until it bottoms out when you retract it or extend it fully out? Knock on wood, I've got an 86 with the original jack and have yet to blow a fuse. I never run it to the limits on extension or retraction.

True. If you are blowing fuses there may be a problem...

From everyone's post, thinking I need to find that fuse on my -new-to-me 91 Excella since the power jack is nonlt responsive. I did buy a new jack but if the fuse is the issue then I can save the new jack for later.

Oh, Hello gypsydad - I'm in NW Austin

I don't care about how to find and replace fuses, how did you (gypsydad) get your wife to crawl under your trailer?

Good question; she is quite tenacious when it comes to troubleshooting things, that cost $$! I typically just go for replacement; she try's to save us money!
