Power jack blowing fuses

My power jack has be blowing fuses frequently this summer - 3 fuses in the last 7-8 uses. This has never happened before. There has been a few times where the ball has not easily uncoupled from the hitch recent. Perhaps thatís the issue. Maybe more grease in the coupler? Does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks.

I have never blown a fuse, but I think I tripped something a few times in my slanted driveway. Maybe it has some thermal protector or something but it would quit for a minute then start working again after sitting for a few. What I started doing is when I park the trailer I try to ensure there is no stress added to the tongue (think like trailer wanting to roll forward or backward resulting in the jack being cocked and binding a little). I chock the wheels while still hooked up and let it settle against the chocks before raising it. Hasn't cut out or tripped anything since I started doing this. Not sure if this helps or not or if my issue was a fluke that just went away either...lol. Regards, Jim

I blew one a couple weeks ago. Worked when I hooked up at the campground. Arrived at home, went to unhook. There was no power to the jack. took me awhile to find it was an inline fuse.

I wonder if that might be part of the reason some of the guys have went to a heavier electric jack.
