hydraulics not working--HELP!

Slides and power levelers working fine, drove it a short distance, now the hydraulics aren't working at all. Had to manually lift it to unhitch it. Charged the battery. Don't know how to check the fuses. HELP! I love how you all help with input.

Check in line fuse(pink wire) near panel above battery. Had problem with the fuse in our 09 until I upgraded fuse and breaker.

We just went through this and found that the motor that runs the hyd. pump died. If you call Lippert, they will walk you through how to test it out It's simple if you have a multi meter. Just disconnect from tow vehicle and shore power so that you only have battery power. Put one lead to ground and the other to either lug on the motor. Have DW or other helper hit the slide switch to the in and out position. In one position or the other you should have 12+ volts. If you do the motor is dead. If not you have a problem with a fuse, bad ground or other connection, poor battery connection, etc.. All this is assuming, of course, that the batteries are fully charged. Good Luck and whatever you do, KEEP SMILING!!!!!

x2 on the fuse on the pink wire, that would be my first step. Let us know.

That fuse is also replaced on our rig. As Scott says, start there and then go to the more critical stuff.

Thanks everyone, AGAIN! It was the fuse near the battery. We have our hydraulics back. Is replacing the breaker a big deal?
