RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 months ago

Most times the stabilizer legs are wired directly to the battery and many times you will find an in-line fuse or breaker near the battery. Below is a picture of one style they will use, as a general rule it would be 18" from the battery and can be on the frame. Most have a tiny tab on them that pops out when they trip. To test the breaker you would want to see the same voltage on each post to chassis ground (not across the posts) if one side reads much higher in voltage then the breaker is tripped or bad, they can fail as they are exposed to the elements and can corroded. So that is where I would look to start, make sure the battery cables are clean and tight and you have over 12 volts AT the battery.

Please let me know if you need more help on this follow ups are included.....

Thanks, Robert

Thanks Robert we have seen one by leg and one by battery. How do you test it to see if it needs replaced?
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 months ago

You need a volt meter or test light. IF you have a volt meter set it to the DC scale touch the red probe to one post and the black probe to the chassis ground, unpainted surface, get the reading, next move the red probe to the other post and get a reading they should be very close. You can also get a small wire and jump the posts and see if they work. IF so you have found the problem. Some have a tiny tab on them that pops out when they trip and others are thermal and self reset, it will have an amp rating stamped on the side of it and most auto parts stores carry them for a few dollars.

Hope this helps you out, if you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page. You can still follow up if needed....
