Power Gear Leveler Fuse Box location?

Having trouble getting the rear levelers to retract. They are not responding to the Control Panel. Even putting the engine in gear doesn't retract them, all this does is cause the panel to blink and sound an alarm. So I'm thinking there must be a fuse somewhere for this system that might be the issue, but I can't find it. This is for a 2007 National RV Dolphin.

Depending on the age of your Power Gear system, the older systems had the fuses (Special Round) located on the bottom of the keypad. Later versions have a control box under the dash, and uses regular auto fuses. I don't know where the latest system fuses are located, but what I described first was on a 98 Discovery, and the latter system was on 3 different Fleetwood 2003-2005 models.

You may have electric as PG used them in 07.
Here's a new document they recently put out on troubleshooting.

They( PG ) are available to assist with this via email and are very good a responsive. Their address is info@powergearus.com .
If you have a Hydraulic system , they can help with that also.
Good luck and update us when you can.

Yes they are hydraulic and I finally did get them up. Had to turn on the generator to make it happen. They wouldn't retract with the engine running, nor would the door steps or awning operate. But once the generator was turned on and ran for a few minutes they all worked fine. However, I did notice that after turning off the generator for a bit, that the levelers, steps and awning wouldn't operate again. So I think the coach batteries are the issue. And they had been removed and fully charged for 48 hours, just a few days prior.

I thought the spring is the force that pulls up the jack. If you clean the shinny area of the jacks with WD 40 it really helps.
