The slides dont slide
« on: April 07, 2019, 07:44:46 pm »
 Well  with assist from another PC owner I did determine that house batteries are fully charged. But the slides don't move... just a click. I did for the first time open the panel and look and 2 friends on line looked at photos I sent and said main ones were fine. I flipped the invertor switch off and on in the breaker box,  since it is not coming on with the buttons on the teeny tiny wall panel. I first thought the expensive new batteries had died but they have not according to the buttons on the wall.
Now what do I do. I was set to go off for a short jaunt Wednesday and meet up with a group I belong to for their winter snow birds good bye... I will still go even if I have to sleep sideways on the bed.
The joy can be hit or miss. Oh lordy.
P S   the generator will not start, turn over or anything. Its late in the day so I did not want to start the rv engine and then try the generator. I am currently in my driveway, in preparation for travel  to near Disney. I can move to that mode in the morning. I do have overhead lights and elec plugs...tv    help!

Well I will say good night and hope someone has some idea's I can try tomorrow. I will call the plant in the morning and ask for some direction. Thanks to all the readers...regards P

Hi Patricia,

I don't have any slide outs, so I can't offer advise directly related to them, other than to make sure your PC is fairly level before "working" them.

Based off your general description, there is an underlying problem affecting more than just the slide outs.  My generic free advise is of coarse to make sure every fuse is good and every circuit breaker is not "tripped".  Since you are still home, plug your PC into 110V and see if that power provision bypasses the underlying problem.  Also, make sure you hear that loud "click" from the power solenoid and "chirp" from your carbon monoxide detector when hitting the main power switch by the entry door.  Knowing the results of all that would help to narrow down the source of your power loss.

Hopefully someone who experienced the exact same issue has a specific solution for you because I am just shooting bullets into the woods hoping to hit the target.

I called the plant and spoke to Dave, he suggested a electrical problem and mentioned which fuse was slides, I turned off shore power and find I have NO power, not even 12VOLT ALTHOUGH plugged in and on it all works. My little tiny lights come on when button pushed... no generator at all... So I have looked up as was suggested and call a Mobile repair service and indeed  he is due out here after his call north of me. My location was good for him it seems. Now I wait and see. I searched all my drawers and found a great box of fuses and lights, plus 2 beautiful electric drills with chargers and loads of other tools... I have tools far beyond my mechanical aptitude. Now I wait and see. Dave did ask for a report back at what was determined. So I will report in later when all in order again. Thanks.....

Is the switch by the side door turned on?  When it is, there should be a red light on the switch that goes on.

Batteries may be charged, but are they connected?  The heavy red wires to positive terminal, heavy black to negative terminal?    Also there is a short jumper wire between one battery's negative terminal and the other battery's positive terminal. Not the same terminals the red and black are hooked to!   The short wire goes between the terminals in the middle, where the 2 batteries touch each other.

Try running the engine . The alternator will provide 13V  to the coach battery circuit.
You didnít say how the Good Samaritan checked the battery voltage.  Everyone should keep a digital  volt ohm meter in the tool kit.
Goin' where the wind goes...

The big factor is.... If the batterys don't work lot of things don't work. I called a Mobile Service Co since that was Dave's suggestion. Now I have 2 new cheap batteries plus service for $653. and I just finished the genset test run for 30 minutes.... so slides work, and genset too. The guys tested lot of things, found no fuses blown and now put it all back together and did a neater job with battery wiring so the battery tray can be pulled out to add water without any big hassle... I did call Dave and tell him the outcome and discuss the dining window that is full of moisture and will have to be replaced if the window guys I know and used long ago cannot get it dry and back together.... Well solved problem, now I can relax and finish packing and even look under the bed and see how many pairs of jeans I have under there now.

Thanks for all the suggestions. You never know which one will solve the headache and get you rolling again. Until next time. Hugs to all. P.
