If my camper is any indication of yours, the wires are not tied down to anything; they just hang there. You might be able to use the old wire as a "fish" to pull the new one through.

The Slideout Short Dilema

OK, I went thru everything. I followed all the wiring I could. The curly cable to the slide out went into the underbelly of the RV driectly at the end of the curly cord. I looked and I saw the damndest thing, 2 little blue tabs that had 3 slots for 3 wieres each. I pulled out the little plug and I saw 2 wires going into each one. In one, I saw a ground wire. I went back to the slideout, and loked a the green ground that I read here was not attached to anything. I attached it to the negative lead, and son of a gun, the lights came on. If that ground wire is not attached, hook it back up and save yourself 3 days of head banging. Thanks for the help guys, really appreciate it. See you next time something goes wonky!

Glad you found the problem. The quick connect fittings might make the wiring easier for the workers at the factory but can be a PITA when they come apart.

Wonky stuff

Yeah, the quick connectors are one, the square headed screws can be a problem, especially when working with 3rd party add ins that have standard phillips screws, rough when you forget your glasses. I have found that the connectors for water lines are Forest River are very short, they pop out easily and are better replaced with longer ones.

Good thread.
Thanks to the OP for sharing your solution.
Too many times we are left hanging by an OP on whether or not the suggested fixes worked.
