I'm not sure, but look for battery switches. Battery disconnects, or something like that. If you have a voltmeter, check all the batteries.

Search the "George Town" sections and see what you can find.

I do not own a motor home, but I believe they have a safety to prevent them from being opened when driving.

Look for a safety switch on the stabilizers (must be deployed to open) or steering column (must be in park) to open the slides.the slides?

On my Gtown there is a breaker switch under the entry step cover that is probably tripped.

Yes there is a breaker switch under the step to the left of the black fuse box there is also a fuse in that black boxes one of the 2 15 amp blue fuses on the right. And yet another 15 amp blue loop fuse located in the wire harness coming off the pump it's self. Hope this helps .! Any other questions I work hard building these units and want everyone to enjoy them !

The slides will not go out if the ignition switch is on.

Also note that the slides will not go out if there is no fluid in the hydraulic pump tank. That one happened to us, new motorhome and found the tank empty, don't know how the dealer got the slides to run in or out.

Also, make sure the "Battery Control Center Switch (on the right just inside the entrance door as your enter), is flipped to "Connect", not on "Disconnect".

I had a problem with my 2011 Georgetown 360 RB, found the batteries under the steps were delivered bone dry, would not take a charge they were so dead, Georgetown stepped up to the plate, 2 new batteries, no charge. We love our rig.

I too had slides fail during my dealer orientation. First thing the techs went to was the breaker for the slides. Lots of amps flow out. We found the hydraulic pump had failed and it took a week for a new part to arrive from Lippert.

The way to test this on my unit was to bring in the bedroom slide on an electric motor but then fail on the other two slides since they were hydraulic. Hopes this helps a bit.
