Question Lights in Slideout not working on a 8314ss

Hello, we just purchased our first ever travel trailer its a 2007 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8314SS. It didn't come with any manuals, everything works great except the lights and power plug in in the slide out don't work? Slide out works but no lights? My husband looked in the breaker box thing and found some fuses one has a red light on so he swapped the fuse with another but that didn't do anything. Is there something we are missing to turn on?

Thank you everythone

Extend slide and see if wiring underneath slide is OK or is damaged.....

Thanks Fonzie, my husband said he looked underneath but said it's all closed off. Is there some way to see the wires under the slideout?

X2.

May be a shorted and then severed wire under the slide. Shorted the fuse and then separated, so putting another fuse in did no good.

There should be a plastic wire loom by one of the extending struts that has a curve in it and holds the wire for the slide..

Another Q is what kind of light (12volt or 110) and what kind of plug? If it is a 110 plug, then they will be a breaker that controls it and possibly a GFCI outlet upstream. You may want to click the breakers in the distribution panel (where the fuses are) off and on one at a time and see if the plug comes alive. Also check and reset the GFCI(s), but if that is the ONLY plug not working then that is not the problem.

Good luck

Here is another post similar to yours, wiring should be visible underneath slide when extended...
