There really no way to answer you, the only thing you can do is use a hyd meter to check the life. Nobody knows how they were maintained or used from 2014. You can also pull the batteries and have them tested for a load capacity.

If your coach batteries die, you still should be able to power the slide drive with the generator or by running the chassis engine.

My slide will not operate if the engine is running. Wonít even show up on the One Control screen or app until engine is shut down and key off.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Seems to work fine with the Onan running. All thatís required is for the ignition to be off.

Leveling jacks opposite. They require the engine to be running with parking brake engaged.

Our slide will only work off the batteries and while the engine, generator or shore powere will charge the batteries, only a charged and functioning battery makes that slide go in and out - found out the hard way - TWICE!!

Got two new Good batteries and NO more problems

Mine works the same, the engine has to be off with the big foot, but with my old level up system, it didn't matter, level up is not interlocked like a big foot, people might be commenting on a different system.
