Tongue jack elec prob

The tongue jack stopped working -7 C... no light either. Is there an inline fuse somewhere?

Mine has an in-line 30A fuse. Pulls the cover off and put some break free through the bolt and screw assembly. Iím sure the rust and cold have added up to make it more than the fuse could handle. Mine blew last week in 85 degree weather here in AZ

I hooked mine up and wired it directly to the battery with a switch on the battery box and an inline fuse. I also took it apart and greased the screw, made a huge difference when raising.
