Stairs won't retract and the awning won't work

Suddenly the automatic stairs will not retract and the awning will not function on a 2014 Georgetown XL.

I check the circuit breaker's and the fuses and they seem to be fine.

Any thoughts? Would there be additional circuit breakers elsewhere?

The remaining switches on the control panel have power however the step extension switch does not light up so it may not be getting power.

I'm having the same issue with my 2012 Georgetown and the slide-outs won't work.

Do you have 12 volts to everything?

I'm in Newport Beach and hooked up to AC with DC. I'm hearing a clicking noise at the pump and will clean the terminals and try again. I have to go get some metric tools.

This happened to me and it turns out that the battery switch was turned to off. They needed the 12v. One I turned it on it immediately solved the problem.

Hello Bradsark, I had a similar problem with the steps this past winter, and it turned out to be a fuse. The fuse was located under the steps in the battery compartment. You may be able to reach it from under the chassis at the stair mechanism. I had not lubed the steps and I think that caused the steps to stick which made the fuse blow.
I hope this helps!
Dennis

On my GT the awning power comes directly from the house batteries via a fused link. The fuse holder got corroded and the awning would not extend. I cleaned the fuse holder and put elect grease in it and its been good for 4 years.
