Different Smart Bed Issue on 2006 Apex

2006 Apex FDQS with the smart beds. HWH model AP36646 hydraulic unit.

Cannot open or close any of the 4 smart beds from either the external touchpads or from the large rocker switches in the hydraulic bay and service bay. The switch and light over the entry door work as do all of the storage lights.I have located and replaced (none tested bad) 4 in line fuses in the hydraulic bay: 40 amp HWH power: 20 amp HWH power: 40 amp fuse to the Master Power switch in the hydraulic bay and the fuse block there: and 30 amp fuse for power to smart bed relays/touch pads (others have noted 20 amp fuse here but mine was clearly 30 amp).. Still nothing. (By the way none of the rocker switches work for the slides either).

I have full functionality of the hydraulic system through the Silverleaf screen (raise/lower jacks; open/close slides) but of course you can't open the smart beds from the silverleaf screen.

I can fool the system by starting the HWH pump through silverleaf (lower jacks for instance) and simultaneously press the external touchpad to open/close a smart bed. Once my wife stops running the pump through the silverleaf screen, however, the touchpad dies again.

Any ideas on further diagnostics would be appreciated.

Also, can you open the smart beds by unbolting them from the hydraulic cylinder and then manually pull them out and push them shut again?

The drawers are completely independent of the Silverleaf system. My guess is there is a blown fuse powering the system. There are several fuses in the hydraulic bay, look carefully between all those wires. Also check fuses in sewer bay next to the hydro hot. I have not had an issue so never did identify the exact fuse.
