Slideout power

Any suggestions as to why we aren't getting any power in our slideout? Have checked the cables below it and the breakers and nothing seems wrong with either. All other electric is working fine.

It would be nice to know which unit you have.

How did you check the cables? Did you just look at them or did you check for voltage at the connections?

Is this 120 volts or 12 volts that you're having problems with? I suspect 12v, but I need to ask.

Slideout is 12v and uses fuses, not breakers.
There often is a slideout fuse under the frame, that will blow.

I asked about whether it was 120v or 12v because she said 'power in our slideout' not to the slideout. Our last RV had a 120 volt receptacle in the slideout as well as 12 volt lighting.

Sorry Bama, my post was to her statement of "checked the breakers", not in response to your post.

Thanks for the ideas ... can you tell me where the 12V fuses under the slideout are? We can't find them.
