    Landing gear binding

    We are near the end of a 2000 mile trip, two stoops ago our 30 amp fuse blew. Fixed that then at the start of our next leg the landing gear sounded like it was bonding about 6-& inches before my stop line. I went a bit further and blew the fuse again. I've checked the inner tubes for straightness, all seems good. There is nothing that could ale them bend. I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do short of taking it to the dealer?

    I haven't looked closely at mine, but when the warmer weather arrives Thursday I'll have to look a little more. There's usually a grease zerk or two on each leg...was at the top of the leg on our last camper. There's probably something on the Reflection too.

    I checked our front landing gear on our 337 today. There are 2 grease zerks near the top of each leg on the forward face. You could try pumping some grease into them and run the gear up and down when hooked up and see if that makes any difference.

    Hi Horst, Marlene & Jack (@Boomer),

    Make sure your battery disconnect switch is ON so your battery is charging during travel. If your battery is low, the high amp draw will blow the fuse. (Low voltage = high amperage.)

    Best regards,
