If you disconnect your battery does everything still work on shore power?

While on shore power ... if you have the battery disconnect in the position that isolates the battery ... things will still work. You'll just put a hell of a load on the converter if you try to use the slides or jacks. The battery disconnect red lever should not be able to be pulled out if you have the battery in circuit. If you can pull the red lever out ... you are not connected to draw from the battery.

Typically won't work without the battery in line. I lost battery power when working on my lights. Found a reference to this little resettable link and that was the ticket. On my Rockwood TT, it's on the drivers side part of the tongue, on the inside of the I beam just behind the front part of the camper body. It's on one of the main wires from the battery. There is NOTHING in the manual about this. Got the info off this forum and back in bidness. The button is very small.

Look behind the copper buss bars. You might also find the circuit breakers for each of the circuits there.

We have a 2013 29RE they are two different systems. The slides operate on electric over hydraulic, in other words there is a electric motor that drives a hydraulic pump for the slides. There is an over ride switch right beside the motor pump. The fuse is at the back of the pump. Assuming your battery is not dead and the battery cut off switch is on!! I'll try to post pic.
No success on pic post, not sure where fuse is for stab jacks.
