Ok well story goes, wife buys fifth wheel while hubby at work..
and he is actually looking forward to it then when we go to pick it up the slides do not budge and the leveling jacks are 1 cm per 3 min in moving.
The bedroom one was out 6 in and a rv guy we called said slide it all the way out then it can go in. sooo we did, manually but after sliding it out it didn't go in at all. Other 2 we havent seen move at all.
RV repair came out loosened the hydraulic lines till slide could be pushed into fifth wheel we took it home and nope. it does not work.
Heres the deal though: we are not sure if it is a electrical issue or motor issue. Dad tends to think it is a wiring issue or a battery since when you try to use the motor it clicks like a car battery with no correct connection. The jacks also are extremeeeeely slow. It goes a little bit then stops, let it sit and then little bit and stops.
this is a 1997 Travel Eze 35' Fifth Wheel, 3 slides
#1 If i need to replace/rebuild Dewalt motor can it be done? #2 the Lippert slider motor maybe switched in its place if needed?
Before we can concentrate on that, we need to figure out the power issue. The common denominator between the two things not working is electricity. Even with a jump they do not go up and down or in and out. Both are seperate units. Batteries are not best but not super bad. the wiring to them is a bit strange however. 1 wire neg to neg, other wire hot to hot. then 2 small wires, 1 black 1 purple, small guage though (assume for hydraulic motor for slides?) Both of those on one post. 2 batteries total. Shouldn't there be another fat wire?
I appreciate any help you can give. thanks
