No power to slides, landing gear or awning.

I was putting in the rear slides, one came all the way in the other stopped just before coming completely in. No power to switches for slides, awning or landing gear. it is a 2019 Salem 31KQBTS. It is hooked up to electric. I checked the breaker panel and none were tripped.

All of those items you mentioned operate on 12 volts. I suspect you have a blown fuse or a tripped automotive type circuit breaker. First, check the fuses in you electrical panel. If you see an illuminated LED by the fuse, it means the fuse is blown. Second, check for an ATO type fuse near your batteries on the tongue (it will be encased in a plastic covering), or an automotive type circuit breaker up underneath the front of the rig. If you find a circuit breaker look for a small black button which is the breaker reset. Push it to reset the breaker.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. X2 with the previous checks and also check the state of your batteries and that the converter is supplying 12 power to the batteries.

Thank you for the suggestions. It was the reset button for the battery.

Now that the power has been restored it would be a good idea to find the cause of the outage. What caused the circuit breaker to trip.

If operating a slide, make sure that the mechanism is clean and properly lubed. Any extra effort to move the slide by electric motor(s) can cause high current draw.

If this occurs often, just resetting the breaker doesn't cure the underlying problem.

One addition to Mike's excellent advice... sometimes those 12v circuit breakers just get weak and trip effortlessly. Sometimes it is just a matter of replacing a weak 12v breaker.

When this happened to me I installed a larger fuse. For some reason forest river put a 4 amp fuse in the system and the drain for operating the slides and Jack's is little more than 4 ramps. Havent has issues since.
