Oh Crap .... Slides don't work

I just checked and the slides do not work with the key on. The motor doesn't need to be running just having the key turned one position will keep the slides from working. If the key is in the ignition the slides will work but if turned on they will not work.

Thanks for the replies.
All batteries are connected correctly and all of voltages as measured check okay.
I have not even put the keys in the ignition.
I did pull out the switch panel and visually check all the connections but I will take it down again and do some actual measurements. Thanks Silver

Thanks Phil that is good info,

There is nothing in the manual for the two bedroom slides regarding an ignition interrupt. The hydraulic are the only slides that have this feature. Forest Fiver must have crafted their own circuit. In the bay just before the water manifold on my coach near the ceiling are four relays. I never sorted out what they were for. Perhaps the disconnect power for slides? maybe there is a fuse there also?? You might want to look there and see if you have them. Make sure they are all well seated. The main basement on the water bay wall near ceiling.

You might also want to put the key in the ignition in the event the switch is funny. Turn on and off a few times.

When you look at the connections behind the panel press down on each.

Is there any chance a mouse or other little guy could have gotten into the coach and been eating wiring?

Just a thought have you put the levelers down and then tried the slides?

There is always the chance one of the furry little guys got in. I haven't had one yet, and I do use just about every method to prevent them that are mentioned in these forums. I have baited traps everywhere and I'm not catching anything or finding any droppings or paper being torn for bedding.

I sure hope to get a reply from Randy later today.

Thanks,
Ken

Ken,
Not sure how long it will take to hear from Randy. I sent him an email several days ago and as of today, have not heard back. Hopefully we will both hear soon.

Ouch.

Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I'll stop by the local RV dealer and have him get an okay to take a look.

Ken

LOL! You should see what comes up when you use the cell phone microphone with a Louisiana accent!
This might be a lame suggestion, but check the power to your shore power. We had that problem once.
Good Luck!

Hay Phil,

While you are sunning yourself down in FL check to see if you have these relays I mentioned and if there are any labels on them if you would. I am just curious.

Silver I don't see anything in that bay. I looked in the other compartments and don't see any box. I will keep looking but my knees are not cooperating so it's tough for me to get in there to look really good. Sorry.
