2013 Cardinal slide out issue

Hi! First time posting anything, anywhere. I have been searching existing threads all day, but can't find my issue. Hoping someone can help me. I have 3800FL Cardinal. The 2 bedroom slides and kitchen operate on same switch. (Lippert Hydraulic System, not the Schwintek). I tried to extend the slide outs, but nothing. I hit the IN side of switch and I hear the hydraulic motor turn, but no movement from slide outs (which they are already in). I have looked and looked for a 30 Amp green fuse to no prevail. When the OUT side is pushed there is clicking sound from a valve with 2 wires on it, has 12VDC on it. The switch works. I switched the wires from the front slides (electric) to this switch all is good. Tried to manually extend slide outs by using the drill, but nothing. I am supposed to go to Destin on the 14th. (less than 2 weeks). Fiver has Atwood remote module, but remote doesn't work. cannot get the yellow LED light to come on when LEARN button is pressed. Not sure if this is the problem.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Sounds like you have a bad solenoid valve (this is a guess on my part). If the slides are in you may want to take it to a shop that can fix the problem. Hopefully someone on the forum will have a better answer. Let the forum know what you find and fix
