DUCKOGRAM is probably right but this is another example of a misleading placard. Does it reference the disconnect or the battery? I would check for power inside, lights etc. (not hooked to shore power) for each position. Just a thought.

I checked, I wanted to make sure and I was pretty sure someone on here could tell me.
Thanks

Will the slides operate with the switch in the "off" position even if you have shore power hooked up?

Hmmmm. Had my neighbors go over to open our trailer up today and the slides would not budge with the shore power on, but with the battery disconnect in the "off" position. Hope there is nothing else wrong.

Wow that is a misleading label....a big fail on the engineer who designed it! (My disconnect is just a little push/pull silver knob)

There is nothing wrong with your Cedar Creek, the switch must be in the on position for the slides to operate. The slideouts require a strong 12 volt source to operate the slideouts, the converter alone doesn't provide enough 12 volt power.

Hummm, mine work just fine when hooked to 110/120v with the battery disconnected.
