Nothing that slides works- Please HELP!

So we have had our camper for a year, and never had any issues. Last night we were closing up to leave and couldn't due to slide outs not working. I mean, there is no power at all. Slide out rooms do not move, and the awning will not extend either. We have electricity directly to the camper and the battery is fully charged. None of the fuses in the fuse box (in large room) are blown. Please help!!!


It is a 2017 Wildwood 31QBTS

Check the resettable breaker close to battery. Has a little button on side you push to reset

Does your unit have the LCI wireless control? If so, find that control board and check the fuses on it. To find it turn off everything in the coach so that all is quiet. With the remote on, press one of buttons repeatedly. This will accuate one of the relays and you should be able to hear it clicking.

Your symtoms sound a lot like what happened to me and mine ended up being a direct short caused by FR running wires throught a hole in a metal brace with a sharp edge.

While on our 7500 mile trip and 21 different campgrounds my slide worked perfectly. Yesterday I was running it in at my home and it quit halfway. Wouldn't move either way. I was freaked thinking how bad it would have been a week ago. Just on a whim I tried the remote and it worked. Buttons on the wall wouldn't work. Also water pump was dead.
I found a blown fuse in the main fuse box.
Interesting that there are apparently 2 different power sources.

And I have to agree on the wiring on these things, no reasoning on it sometimes
