Slide out problem!

This forum is awesome with all its knowledge, so THANKS!!!
Camping last weekend in th Big Horn Mts was great. It was cold, snowed, hailed, & rained. Needless to say we ran the battery down very low. When I went to slide the slide-out in it only made it about 3/4 of the way then the battery died. Threw the genny on & it wouldn't budge. Got out the hand crank got it all the way in and "snap pop" the pin at the end of the extension shaft broke. I thought the motor was bad due to the horror stories I have read about. After more research I found a very common problem of the 30 amp fuse in the green case by the battery blowing. I never would have thought this fuse is for the slid-out motor. Went back up the mountain camping for the 4th. Very 1st thing I did was checked that fuse. To my pleasure is was blown. Replaced it, works like new again.

I "actually remembered" during my PDI, when doing anything manually(slides, stabs, tongue jack) to disconnect the battery first.
