I figured out what was wrong with hydraulic slide stopping every two or three inches.It was the polarity reversing relay next to the pump. it worked going in but would stop every two or three inches going out.

Thanks everyone for the help

Cool Trouble locating 80 amp auto reset 12 volt breaker

I have contacted several local auto parts stores to try and find a 12 volt auto reset 80 amp circuit breaker to no avail. I did order on on line and finally received it yesterday, however the device is much larger than the 50 amp one in the camper, and the studs are much larger in diameter than the OEM one I am trying to replace. I ordered 3/8 studs thinking that I was getting the same studs as the OEM one and thus making the installation more like a "plug and Play" item. I measured the size of my OEM nut and it was 3/8 but the nut on the one I received was 1/2". Today is Sat and in trying to talk with the on line supplier they don't work on Sat. So I did try the local auto parts stores and no luck there either.
Any other thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. BTW thanks for being willing to share your knowledge and hard earned experiences!

Another member encountered the same issue a few days ago. There is an easy solution. Take a look at Post #7 in this Thread http://www.montanaowners.com/forums/...ad.php?t=74952

Here is one option. We were leaving on a trip and I did not have time to order an 80 amp. So I bought two 40 amp breakers and connected them in parallel (resulting in essentially the same as an 80). I bought two short buss bars at Lowe's and some heat shrink tubing. That was 7 yrs ago and still works fine. Though mine does not have as many wires as yours appears to.
