I have a 2012 Voltage V3900. When I raise the front of the trailer I will go thru several fuses ( as many as 8, 30 Amp), even on level ground.
I have done the following:
1) Replace the motor.
2) Replaced the switch.
3) Wired it directly to the batteries (removed the fuse lead off the master control panel, and directly connected it to the batteries).
Still blowing fuses. Only thing left is the gear box or legs themselves.
Also, I noticed there are no grease fittings on the legs. Is there any maintenance that should be done to these items?
Thanks for the reference.
But it does not apply, because 1) I have the power for the landing gear wired directly to the battery with a inline fuse (30 amp). Which totally bypasses the breaker panel. 2) My 50amp circuit break has never tripped.
The problem has to be in the legs, gear box , or motor (possibly too wimpy) sold to me by the RV shop. They just grabbed the Heavy Duty motor, but what is their version of heavy duty?
Is there a way to eliminate the legs, or gear box?
@Brian, do you have aftermarket electric landing gear? I think all the breaker reset problems others are referring to are the hydraulic jacks that can be optioned on the Voltages. They have auto reset fuses and I believe you have the type that need to be replaced.
I know nothing about your setup so I am just guessing but I assume it worked fine for a long time but if this just started something is broken or messed up (obviously). You mentioned you direct wired but it almost sounds like you might have a bad ground.
I am just trying to help here but are you sure you have a clean/good circuit the entire way? Also, the replacement motor you installed should have specs that you should be able to compare to the original. I wonder how the RV shop chose that motor they installed? But if the old motor did the same thing something tells me it is not the motor.
