Pulled SLM modules out and swapped fuse, unit powers up fine. Put in old SLM4 module (no wires attached) and fuse blew again. Is it possible storm blew out the SLMx modules?? Has anyone experienced this?
I have to get a couple more SLMx modules to try to get this working.
I would measure the resistance of each station before going any further, that should of been the first course of action. If you are measuring under 10 ohms resistance on 1 or more stations you should begin a search for a direct short.
