Shoreline power rewind failure

I'm embarrassed to admit that we are 200 miles from home with all the RV manuals mistakenly left at home. Usually that would not be an issue. This time, however, the shoreline cord reel has stopped working. I'm hoping it's just a fuse. Anyone willing to point me in a good direction to find it?

I have a 2008 Dutchstar with the power reel. The fuse for it is in the same compartment as the reel behind a panel at the back that is attached with Velcro.

Also check that the connection to the power reel didn't came lose. That keeps happening to me if I'm not careful. The wires are clearly visible to the right of the reel.

Found the panel but had no idea which was the correct fuse. Trying to find a "burned" fuse, I pulled each one to examine it. They all looked fine so I tried the cord real and it worked just fine. I still don't know which was the right (apparently loose) fuse since I didn't retry the reel until I had pulled and reinserted all the fuses. Sort of wish I had retried the reel after reinserting each fuse so I could definitively identify and label the right fuse for the future. The important thing is - it now works. THANKS!

I would be more concerned with a ground wire being loose. I happened to me on several items. It's hard to see but my reel is connected by two wire nuts to wire coming off the fuse panel. If I remember correctly it is an in-line fuse.

You could always go back to that fuse area, and pull one at a time.....easy, peasy....
