It has done it again. Seems like every time we move the slides it is a major draw on power.

can you move your slides with everything else off? there are 'resets' for your slides in an other area besides the converter box.

Perhaps you have some loose or corroded battery connections. The higher energy draw from the slides is causing enough voltage drop that the thermostat "resets" and shuts the AC off. (Having the compressor off for only 20 seconds may damage the compressor!)

Just went out and turned the battery switch off. Everything worked normal. Turned the battery switch back on and everything works normal. Go figure!!!!

Thanks for all of the advice though. If anyone has any more, I am all ears.

Thanks.

Todd.

This is what I'm thinking.
