Does the 20 Amp Circuit Breaker for Ultra-Fab Powered Trailer Jacks Reset Itself


How do you reset the 20 AMP Circuit Breaker on the Electric Tongue Jack?


Expert Reply:

Once an overload condition has ceased then the circuit breaker should reset itself. It is mounted on the outside of jack # UF38-944017 but should not need any persuasion to reset. If the jack is not powering on it could be that an overload or short still exists or something else in the electrical system from the power source to the jack is not working properly.

You will also need to check the in line fuse. If it is blown the jack will not operate. If all the wiring is done correctly and there is no short then normally what trips a breaker or blows the fuse is either trying to lift more weight than the jack is rated for or trying to extend or retract it beyond its limit.

Make sure that the location where the jack is mounted is clean and free of corrosion because that can cause issues since the jack grounds through the mounting hardware.
