Exclamation Location of 30 amp fuse for main slide/landing gear

We have a 2013 Cougar 331MKS. Today my main slide and landing gear stopped working from the control panel. They still work using the remote control. I called the dealer. He said I need to replace the 30 amp fuse. He said the fuse box is located in the battery compartment on the wall above the batteries. He said the fuse box holds 5 or 6 fuses so it is not big. I have looked all over in the battery compartment and cannot find it. Does anyone have any ideas as to where this fuse is located? Thanks!

The 30A fuse for our front landing gear is located in the front compartment about a foot or so from the battery box. It is not in a "fuse box" but is a single, inline type fuse and is "concealed" in the coiled, black wire wrap. It isn't visible since it is covered by the wrap.

Your setup may be different but you might want to check out this possible location.

If your 30A regular fuse blows often, you might want to consider replacing it with a 30A resettable-type circuit breaker.

Mine was an inline fuse but it's been replaced with an automotive type. It's the black connector on the orange wire. In-lines are stuffed into plastic tube so you might need to hunt along the tubing. All that I have seen are at this location just above the battery.

I have the Ground Control III setup on mine and all four 35amp fuses for the leveling system are located on the ceiling of the front compartment in a fuse block.

Angry Problem not solved

Turns out it wasn't the fuse. I have the 5th wheel in the shop and will let you know what the problem turns out to be.

Angry The saga continues

I took the 5th wheel to Camping World service since I thought I had gotten poor service from my local dealer (where I spent thousands of dollars to buy it in the first place!) Camping World told me that they contacted Keystone and was told that the problem is the Control Panel (which I have had serviced once before and subsequently the dealer replaced it). And Keystone no longer makes the same panel anymore. So on June 9 it goes back to the dealer. Even though the warranty period is passed, I intend to convince them that the control panel is known defective and ought to be replaced at no cost to me. By the way it cost me $143.00 at Camping World to get this far. More to come.
