Power Gear Jack Failure

Yesterday while preparing to depart Skidaway Island, the Power Gear jacks on my Sportcoach would not retract. I get no power to the panel at all. Even when putting the motorhome in gear they would not retract. So I used the manual procedure. I actually hooked a battery to the motor and used the releases. We are in SC now with no jacks. I've checked all fuses and even swapped my panel with a buddy but no dice. I need to find the brain to check for power there but have no idea where it is located. It is it in the compartment with the Jack pump.

Does anyone know where these are typically located?

Mark,

I had the same problem in Lafayette, LA. My unit has two fuses, one worked it's way loose thanks to our great (rough) interstate system. Have your checked both fuses?

It's fixed! The box is mounted in the basement and I think I unplugged it when I put the broom away!
