Just for general info: If you have problems with the
Auto Reset breakers for the hydraulic pump, check the ratings on the breakers.</span>Last summer we had no problems, but toward Fall when the temps
were cooler our main slides would stop and restart several times when coming
in. Thought maybe we had a bad breaker, so Brian sent me a pair of new
breakers. Since we were setup for the winter in Florida by then, never put them
in. Well recently the breakers were tripping more and more, even to the
point that doing an Auto Retract on the Jacks they would trip numerous times.
So the other day I figured I better install the new breakers before I
ended up doing it at a CG somewhere. Well to my surprise the OEM breakers
were only 30 amp breakers, while the replacements are 50 and I know for a fact
the Hydraulic pump can draw in excess of 80 amps. So I didn't have a bad
breaker, just grossly under sized.</span>
