Power front curtain problems

2005 Essex front power curtains just stopped working. Never had any problems before. I think the fuse might have blown. Can anyone advised where the fuse could be. I've looked thru all the fuses and none are marked power curtains. Also where is the Motor mounted for them. Thanks in advance.

On our 04 Essex the motor is in cabinet above drivers seat. You could jump positive and negative to motor and see if it moves. Changing negative positive around will make motor run different directions. We put full window shades in coach so I have that motor assembly.

I assume you mean the fabric curtain as opposed to the shades. The motor is in the cabinet above the drivers seat and closest to the slide. It is vertical and lifts straight up ... it rests in a hole. Not sure about the fuse.

On one of my fuse diagrams, F4 is power shades ... these fuses are in the compartment under the driver seat. I'd meter them all .... diagrams are definitely "iffy". Another possibility is an inline fuse behind the switch panel over the dash.

Ok thanks everyone. I have it fixed. Bruceisla gave me the location of the motor. Tested the power to the motor. Had power, turned shaft then hit switch and it worked. Then it stopped working. Took cover off and found that one of the leads was off the connection just barely touching. Plugged it back on it's connector. Problem solved. Happy camper here!
