HWH jack problem

I have a 2007 Kountry Star and I have a problem with the HWH jacks. Does anyone know where the 40amp fuse for the system is located?

I'm not sure that the location would be the same on your 325 series , as it was on my 99 with 310 , but the 40 amp inline fuse was within a foot of the pump motor relay .
After the inline " waterproof" holder failed due to water intrusion . I relocated and replaced with a 40 amp self reset 12 volt circuit breaker . So I can't even post a picture , of the location just the results of years of water intrusion.
I have a copy of the 325 manual and I'll have a look to see if maybe it was a standard location.

EDIT : In your other post on this problem you've said the pump runs , because the 40 amp fuse supplies the power to the control panel , and you've been able to turn the pump on , I'd say the 40 amp fuse isn't your problem ; but it'd be nice to find it to be sure it doesn't look like mine did.
BTW: the fuse; in this photo; was not blown just what was left of the connections wouldn't pass enough power to operate any of the system ; just light up the panel.

Ok , from looking at the 325 and 310 wiring manuals .

Wire from the starter motor relay to the control board in the 325 manual ( labeled #6100 ) does not show a fuse and I believe it should .
Because my 310 manual wire from the starter motor relay to the control box ( in the case of the 310 series ) also labeled #6100 shows the 40 amp fuse next to the relay.

I'll go over the info I have on the 325 control board , but I firmly believe that the power wire for the board would be fused before the board not on the board.

Have you had any luck with manual retraction of the jacks .

Hwh

No, Iím still trying to get the jacks to retract. I have replaced the shuttle valve. I canít get the solenoids to release the oil to allow the jacks to release and it affects all 4 of them

I haven't found a good picture of the 325 board to look for a 40 amp fuse .

But I wonder if you've seen this thread on 325 issues.

some of the newer systems do not have a 40 amp fuse. the power goes directly to the control box.

I would look for it to be close to the pump motor.

Thanks Paul for that info ; one more thing for me to keep in mind . I though it might have been a omission in the wiring schematic , now I know it wasn't .

My HWH system wouldn't operate this morning. I recalled reading about the 40A fuse blowing and melting the holder somewhat. That is exactly what happened to me. I wanted to keep the repair as simple as possible until I get home, so I cut off the burnt part of the holder, picked out the part of the fuse left in the terminal and cleaned the terminal the best I could. I installed a new 40A fuse and sealed it all up with electrical tape. That should hold me over until I get home in a few days.

It seems like a fair number of people are having issues with the 40A fuse and its looks like the latest design does away with it, but is there a another issue thats causing the the fuse to blow that we should be investigating? Thanks.

The 40 amp fuse would be wired to the solenoid on face of pump, most likely rusted out, temp jumper can get pump working.
A 40 amp auto reset switch can be wired.
Road salts and water eventually cause death to fuse holder, you shoul be fine to get home.
A search for you.

As 007 recommends go to a auto parts place and buy a $5 auto reset 40A CB. I did this and hot glued it to a close by panel.

I most likely will install the circuit breaker, but no rush since I bought a 5 pack of 40A fuses. I made it to SC this evening and proceeded to setup. I tried to open the FWS, but the HWH pump didnít start. I grab a 40A fuse and was about to replace it but decided to check chassis 150A breaker first. It had tripped. This has happened a few times over the years. I reset the breaker and proceeded to extend the FWS. It extended but the HWH pump cut off before the FWS dropped into place. Checked the 150A breaker again, but it had not tripped. Turned breaker off and on and the HWH system worked again. Something weird going on.
