breakers trip

I have a 08 Wildcat 27 rkbs. Either in or out, the hydraulic slides wont make the full trip, without tripping the breaker. It resets within a few seconds...but is this normal? If I put the slides in...the BR slide comes in, the LR slide gets about halfway, and the breaker trips. After maybe 10 secs it resets, and all is well. Battery is fuly charged and cables are tight. I guess not a real problem, but is it indicative a something more serious?? Thanks in advance.

Can anybody tell/show me where the central grounds are located on a 2015 Sandpiper 355RE? My Lippert slide system has recently been doing the same thing. Also while I am seeking help, my auto level (level-up) blows the 15 amp fuse EVERY time it is time to level the trailer or retract the leveling/landing gear.

You'd probably get more replies if you start your own thread instead of hijacking mine
Maybe read up on some forum etiquette too!

I appreciate your somewhat rude response. I followed your topic and assumed you had received your answer. I was hoping to take advantage of the fact that you had attracted the attention of some folks that knew the answer to your problem and mine and would not have to sit and wait until someone noticed my problem. Certainly my bad. Didn't realize I was encroaching. I've never noticed such sensitivity in this forum before.

I understand your motivation. Using others efforts..... So you don't have to wait. I understand. It's called hijacking. The OPs thread is discredited because now there's a second semi similar question on the thread.
It's not sensitivity. It's speaking out for what's right.

I think what you have are 40 amp resettable breakers....I replaced mine with 50 amp and stopped that problem.

I do have 40A breakers. I hesitate to upgrade the breakers as I assume they were usable when the camper was new. Something has increased the resistance in the system. I did check the grounds, and replaced the battery cables. The odd thing is it doesnt do it all the time. Had the unit out for 8 days, slides came in good....pulled it home...slides went out ok. I guess I need to recheck all the connections again. Thanks for the input.

Mine was 3 years old when I bought it....29RLBS.....read a lot of the slide breakers......and tried the 50 amp.....have had no problems since I changed them.
