Smile Smoking hot wire lead problem solved

About a week ago I posted a letter about smoke coming out from under my hood when I went to store my jacks. I got several good suggestions from various people and tried what most suggested. The last thing I tried came from RV Wizard who suggested replacing the fuse holder. I first cut out the old fuse which is what was getting too hot to touch and straight wired it with male and female spades. I made sure the bare connecters where safely out of the way and put my jacks in the store position. There was NO heat build up at all. I could even hold the bare connecters in my hand. Problem solved. Going to buy a heavy duty inline fuse. Thanks guys for all your help. Maybe I can return the favor for someone else who has a problem. Thanks again!!!!!

Tim not sure you have this bolt on your 2001 chassis but its something to check.
The bolt has all your jack solenoid grounds that have to open for jacks to retract, may want to check out.
