2012 Wild Wood Slideout

Untill today the slideout on my 2012 27 ft Wild Wood travel trailer worked fine. Now nothing. I have checked all fuses and breakers I can find. All are OK. I am plugged into an 30 amp outlet and everything else works fine. The slideout worked last time I used it, about a month ago. Now when I push the button, nothing. Are there other fuses/breakers other than in the fuse box or is there a reset button somewhere. Thanks

Look for a manual resetable circuit breaker on the positive battery cable.
It may be a few inches or a few feet from the battery.
Have you checked for 12v at the switch?

Battery was dead. Didn't know that. Thought if RV was plugged in, it would keep the battery charged. Don't see a charger anywhere, so I guess I just need to put the battery on a trickle charger. Thanks for your help

I want to say this nicely, but I think you're jumping to some pretty quick conclusions. Pay attention to the previous post regarding a resettable circuit breaker. Most rigs have one, and if it is tripped it probably isolates your 12 volt system from the rest of the rig, INCLUDING the battery charger. The chances are that your rig IS equipped with a battery charge capability, built into the Power Converter.

During my first foray with my 2006 Wildwood LE I had the experience of having a known good battery, and the slide would go in and out, but all my other 12-volt systems (lights, fans, pump, etc) would not work unless I was plugged into shore power. It took a lot of research and reading before I learned about the resettable breaker. I went looking for it, located it easily, and found it was tripped. That was EXACTLY what the problem was, and ever since I reset it, things have been working perfectly.

yes it has a charger. all RVs have a converter/charger. now yours may be bad, therefore it's not charging the battery.
my HTT's slideout stopped working after 8 years of usage. found a blown 30amp fuse under the frame, by the slideout.
