Electric Stabilizer Wiring

My stabilizers on my Keystone Laredo have worked exactly once in the almost year that I have owned it. We have it at the house right now so I can do some other things to it but I figured I would look at those while it was here. There is no power on the switch. I can't find a breaker or fuse for them. Is there an inline fuse somewhere that I am just missing? If I can't figure it out it is no big deal it is still under warranty but I like to fix things like that myself.

No power to the switch means there is a open in the line. Trace the wires back to the battery, the fuse is probably blown or the wire is disconnected/broken.

All of the connections are tight. The wires run up inside the sealed bottom. All of the fuses in the converter are good. There has to be an inline fuse like my jack has that I am missing somewhere.

Usually there aren't inline fuses. Where is the switch for them? Check power to the switches, they like to go out sometimes.

It is a fuse in the inverter that pops. We can get them to work a couple times but then it goes again. I am thinking one of the motors is drawing to much current. I am still too lazy to take it in for warranty work.

Yep probably a bad motor then. Just test each one and see which one draws over the fuses amp rating. Or take it in for warranty work . . . :
