Those look like it but are circuit breakers and not fuses like mine. Mine are not resettable as far as a I know but I am going to take a lot closer look at them in a couple of days. I have pretty well ignored them because they are out of sight and have never given me any trouble. Now that I say that I will probably blow one. I would have to have a pretty big short to blow one because they all feed other ATC type fuses. Bryan must have run his jack all the way out to the stop to draw enough current to blow his. At least now some of us who have these type of fuses are a little more educated so if we suddenly lose a whole 12 volt circuit we have a good idea where to look. It would be real easy with a 12 volt test lamp to tell if one of mine has blown. Just clip the lamp ground wire to a good ground and touch each post on the fuse. If the test lamp comes on when touching both posts then it is good and if it only comes on when you touch one post then the fuse is blown.

Mike, there's almost no chance of tripping one of two parallel circuit protectors. BTW, if you trip these you likely have a much bigger problem.

I agree. I would have to drop a wrench across a circuit to blow one. It would be a major smmoke check. If one blew then some major cable has shorted out. I don't have and jacks (lol)

Hey jeepster don't know if your gonna check back to this thread but a question. Do you know what other 12volt draw you had on while you were putting jacks down, seems odd that just using the jacks would trip that breaker. I would still check all my connections thoroughly, doesn't seem right, just a thought.

Nope, don't have those. Mine look like the ones in that picture about five posts up except they do not have that red button because they are not resettable. Mine are made by Bussman. Monaco must have changed what they use several times. So yours appear to be resettable is that correct?

Well I went to my MH and took a closer look at my HI-AMB BUSS what I thought to be fuses. Now I can see that there are little levers hidden that must drop down when they pop. No red button on them but at least Monaco owners have the resettable ones.

If I remember correctly the little lever your talking about can be moved back to the "on" position.

I'm pretty sure you can move the black lever to open the breaker. Once open you will see red exposed to aid in quickly identifying an open breaker.

Yes John if the breaker pops the lever swings down and I can reset it by pushing it back up and most likely the then exposed part of the lever is red to make it easy to see.

Gil, I am not sure about why I would want to try and move that lever down to open the breaker. The only way I might be able to do that is by sticking something sharp up there and force the lever down. This is not designed to be a switch. Now the OP's is designed to also be used as a switch if needed.

John, sorry for the delayed response but DW and I have been playing around in Quartzsite. First trip here....WOW what a load of RVs !! Regarding your question, I did not have any other significant 12v draw when I was leveling. Our pad in the park was that soft gravel and my passenger wheels were sitting down in a slight trough. I thought the two slides on the driver side would help to offset the right-lean. But when I started to level, it sounded like the passenger rear was running a long time and seemed to be straining. Before I could hit the stop button, the circuit blew. So I could have very well caused it by over extending. I also had not released the air and maybe there was conflict with that. I know the leveling subject is a whole nother story....
