I have the same 5er. Haven't had an issue with the slides yet (knock on wood). Have you checked your battery disconnect switch located behind the battery box (on mine anyway)? I'm not sure if they'll operate if it's turned off (pushed in on mine) even if you're plugged in. Maybe that's the issue.

Are your batteries 'up' to full power and do you keep your unit plugged in when not in use or do you have your battery disconnected when not in use? There are parasite losses from your battery from several places. Do your 'lights' work? You will need a full battery to move your slides.

Hydraulic or electric slides?

The Batteries are fully charged and i do keep unit plugged in when not in use. Everything else seems to work, I have not checked appliances. If unit is not plugged in i turn off battery switch. Thanks

I dint have a 5th wheel but had the same issue last week with our slide. It was a fuse located on a wire between the battery & the frame. Maybe you have one outside that you've missed?

My TT had the same problem. There are 30amp fuses under the tongue between the battery and the frame. Both were bad.
