2008 CC SilverCreek Slides INOP

I have a 2008 Cedar Creek 30LSTS with 3 slides. I have it connected down from the 50A cord to a 30A down to a 15A and have an extension cord plugged into the house. I thought that this would keep power trickle charged down to the battery? I went to get in today and the lights some on (because I'm connected to 110) but the slides do nothing. No movement, no noise. I pulled the battery and put it on a separate trickle charger overnight and still nothing. I checked the slide fuse, right next to the battery and it looks good and not blown. All other fuses in the interior of the trailer appear ok, and the lights beside them are not illuminated indicating they need replaced. Any ideas?! IF I replace the battery with a new one, what's to prevent it from slowly draining and dying as well?

Check your circuit breakers by the battery.

Forgive me TURBS, but I'm new to the RV realm. I only have one battery, but where in your photo would I look for the circuit breakers?

See the red covers?
Behind them are 3 resettable circuit breakers.
Yours may look different but same principle .

TURBS- thanks for the help and quick reply's. Sorry for making multiple posts, was in a panic moment looking for help. Will delete the others.

See my pics below. I finally found the little black reset buttons on the back of the 3 resettable fuses. Two seemed blown and I reset them and now it works great. What could cause those to blow?

Lastly, while I was in the compartment, I saw a loose wire, as if it has come loose from it's fitting. It is the female end. Could it possibly go on the male plug in the middle of the four others ? (see pic). Thats the only available slot I see...

It's hard to say why they blew.
Weak breakers?
To much load all at one time?
Loose or corroded connections?


I'd say if it keeps tripping to do some investigating.


I'd say it looks as if you put the wire where it belonged.

Great! I'll keep and eye on it. This was the first and only time it's done it in my 30 day ownership.

What do you make of the wire that's not connected in the photos. Should I connect it to the one and only available slot?

Unless you can't find any other possibilities of where it went I'd say yes.
Look at the spade on that relay, it should have marks where the female slid onto it before.
