We have a Glendinning RLC unit on our rig, found that the cord had become tangled inside the tube. It did blow the fuse but even once I replaced it the reel wouldn't work. Had to let the tension off the drive wheel and straighten the cord out before it would work again.

No binding. Chord is all the way out. Still nothing. No 12v power to the switch and I can't trace where the hot wire goes yet.

On my '03 there is a terminating/control block on the ceiling above the reel with a small cable coming from the reel to the block. The 12V power should come from the 12V fuse strip in the bathroom cabinet. Mine has a 25 Amp fuse that feeds the cable reel. Of course, WRV may have done something different for '07 but it should have been installed in a similar manner generally speaking.

Thanks Bob. I'll assume I can access that block by removing the fuse panel under my vanity sink?

Simple stuff first--if cord is all the way out, the auto stop notch on the cord may be lodged up against the auto stop sensors/rollers--think I would start there

Hi Old Scout. I've pulled it all the way out after it quit working. Didn't want to but power panel was that far away at the park here in Casa Grande.
I feel it should be simple. But I just need to be able to trace power. First I need to have access to the reel.
