Powergear Jacks no panel lights

Went on a trip this past week and the jacks did not work. The control panel of the Powergear 500457 has no lights. I put the RV in park and apply the parking break, but no lights on the jack panel. I’m able to use the slides which require the RV to be in park and the parking break set. I have tested all the fuses in the box to the left of the steering column on the fire wall, the Powergear box on the fire wall ,the main power box in the engine compartment and also the fuses for the house 110 and 12 volts near the frig. All fuses tested good. Any other places for fuses that I missed. I went to Powergear web site and found a trouble shooting guide but it was for 2004 and newer and I have a 2000. I understand that my setup is now obsolete and an upgrade is available, but would rather get what I have working. Anyone have any further trouble shooting ideas. Anyone have a trouble shooting guide for a 2000 Powergear 500457. I would like to check the voltages at the control box and control panel but unsure what they should be or wires to measure from. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Solved - No Power

I had no power on Pin 5 of the 6 pin connector. So I went to the fuse box (Battery Control Center) in the engine compartment. Tested all the fuses and all were good. Then I read what each fuse had, fuse 10 -Horn, fuse 11 -Level Jacks. Well Fuse 11 was missing. So I moved fuse 10 to fuse 11 and guess what. The Jacks work and the horn works still.

About two months ago I put in a new radio and had blown a fuse. I must have moved the fuse when looking at them, before I did a continuity test. Glade it was an easy fix. I fix if you take your time and trace the problem it can be solved easily. BTW research/analysis/trouble shooting come natural to me. I have been a computer analyst for over 30 years now.
