Give you a bump.

Know nothing about your unit. How long have you had it? Ever happen before. What kind of slide out mechanisms do you have? Is there a Manuel crank or is it all electric? Check all of your fuses for one that is popped. Did they work before you got 'on the road'? Do most/all of the other 12volts systems work at this time?

Is every thing else working? Have you checked to make sure that none of the GFI wall plugs need to be reset? It should not effect the slide out motors, but I have seen stranger things.

Is your transmission in the "N" position.

I'm trying to think of anything from my National Pacifica that would have kept the slide out from working...bear with me here.

I know you said you checked all fuses, and I assume breakers, but maybe this diagram will help. I'm thinking there is a breaker going to your pump that could be checked. Best of luck.

We drove 150 miles stopped and tried slide outs again and they both worked, there might have been a piece of weather stripping caught in the bedroom one, have no idea why they started to work but seem fine now. Thank you for your help

Glad they are working for now.

You do need to have this looked at because the last thing you need is to have them quit while out and what ever the problem is will only get worse.
