Left Side Fuse Blows when Slide is closed

Hi, I've got a Thor Synergy 24MB. There is a circuit with a 15A fuse that supports USB outlets and lights on the left (driver's side) - with most of the outlets "inside the slide". I've blown this fuse multiple times when closing the slide.

I need some advice as to where to locate the wiring at the point where the wires transition from the stationary house to the slide. I'm guessing that I've got a wire being pinched.

Any ideas?

The LCI Schwintek In-Wall slide motors use 7-10 amps each at 14 volts. Recommended fuse is 30 amp (green) slow blow. I would advise never move the slide unless on shore power or generator power, as it significantly lowers the motors current draw.

He's not blowing slide motor fuses. He's blowing fuses that supply USB ports.

My speed reading does leave a little to be desired. Sorry.

Thanks Beau388 for the advise on the slide motor.

My issue is not the slide motor, but a 12V circuit that serves lights and USB ports inside the slide.
