Urgent - Advice Needed - Slides won't extend

We are unable to put both of our slides out. We moved across the park to a different site this morning and when we tried to put the jacks down we got part way and they stopped working. The slides wouldn't extend either. Through some assistance on this forum we traced the jack problem to a tripped circuit breaker under the stairs. We were able to retract the jacks but the slides still won't deploy.

I think these two problems are related but we have not been able to figure out how. We have checked the breakers and fuses in the bedroom and all are fine. Is there a fuse or breaker somewhere else that controls the slides? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We are in the middle of rural Wisconsin, our car is in the shop due to a mouse chewing wires. When it rains it pours.

Do you know where the batteries are for the Inverter? We have a 364ts 2016 and you open the battery compartment just outside the coach steps. On the far back wall of that comparent there are 2 major fuses. One is jacks and I thought the other was the AC UNITS. Look to see if those are tripped. Good luck

Mystery Solved!

Under the stairs there is a black box with about a dozen fuses in it. One of those fuses was blown. I replaced the fuse and the slides are working again. Thank goodness!
Thanks to all of you who offered assistance.
I've attached a photo for anyone else who might run into this problem down the road.

Fuse

What we have discovered is you have to power everything down, allowing everything to cycle off, power off the refrigerator and especially the AC, then turn off the main power switch before disconnecting the power. The same is true if you're running the generator. Power everything off and then unplug. Trust me, this off sets issues.

When you found the circuit breakers,were they under the outside retractable steps or the steps inside into the coach?
Thanks

They were under the removable panel on the inside stairs.

If they are over 15 amp rated, many are, check the left side circle in photo of post 3 of this thread. Large cables feeding battery cables for larger loads including slides. Circuit breakers always located close to batteries. Even on the chassis tongue.
