HWH hydraulic failure

I recently attempted to extend my levelers by hitting the auto level button. Normally air is released, the chassis lowers and then the jacks deploy. This time I pushed the button and nothing happened. The blue light blinked and about a minute later I smelled burning...... I turned it off. I tried opening my generator compartment but since it is also connected to the same hydraulics, it won't open.

Does anyone know how to get the genny compartment open without hydraulic power? I assume the hydraulic pump is burned out, or a solenoid, but I can't even check without getting the generator tray open. A phone tech mentioned pulling a pin to release the tray but I don't know where that is... Any help is appreciated

open both the extend and retract valves for the gen slide. you should be able to pull it out. maybe with a little help from a friend.
download a service manual for your system and do the diagnostics as far as you can. i know restricted areas are hard to get to, but somehow, you need to check the motor.
go down to the motor and check it to see if it works at all. jumper from the battery cable on the master relay to the back of the motor. if the motor attempts to turn, open the extend valve and run the gen slide out.
either way, it appears to be a 12 volt relay, or the motor, but you wont know till you try,
text me at 602-549-3638 with your number, which system you have and the model and year of your coach, and i will help you with the diagnostics.

I replaced my fuse with a 40A self resetting CB. They're cheap.
