Slideout will not extend

Hey guys, I have a 2001 Wildwood 29BHSS and am a newbie. The slide will not go out, when you push the switch you can not here the motor turn on. The lights inside the slide are work so not sure if the slide mechanism just isn't getting power. Also does it have a manual crank to move it out in the event of a power failure?

I know you said that the lights work, but is the battery charged fully?
Do the lights dim when you press the slide switch?

There's usually a resettable breaker near the battery for the slide. It's usually under the frame if it's a TT or in the front storage area if your unit is a fifth wheel.

So I have spent the evening investigating. The fuses and breakers are all good, so now I am thinking either the in/out switch or the silenoid on the hydro pump is bad because the pump is not doing anything.
Next, there is no manual out, only an emergency hand pump back in which I find aggravating.
So to get the slide out I switched the lines on the pump and manual put it out till I can further diagnose the pump.

Did you check for 12 volts at the solenoid while the switch is pressed?

There are no breakers involved with your slides. Slides are 12 volts. Breakers are 120. Did you find the INLINE fuses near the battery? Slide fuses are not on the converter. They usually are resettable with a little button on the side. Do you have a battery disconnect? If so, it ON?

No I hadn't made it that far yet. I have checked the the fuse and it's good. I am going to check today to see if it's getting the 12v to the pump if not i will start tracing back..
