Silverback slides will not work off battery powe

We have had friends and family helping us to figure out why the slides do not work from battery power. Everything works from shore power, but we want to dry camp in the Smokies. Stabilizer jacks don't work either. Our silverback is a 2013 29RE. Any suggestions?

Look for fuse or mini-breaker near battery, replace fuse if burnt or re-set mini-breaker by pressing small black button......hope that is it.

Can't find this fuse. Checked breaker it is fine. Could the fuse have fallen off? Would it be located on the breaker panel?

I can't find that fuse anywhere.does that breaker/fuse go on the panel. I can't find it. I have spares in the campe, but don't have any idea were it was supposed to be mounted.

In my older Cardinal a fuse that looks like that is "hidden" under a heavy rubber flap, which is in the front storage compartment. I also have found that using only one battery does not supply enough power to work the slides or front jacks.

Must have been a bad battery ... thousands of us use one battery to operate slides and landing gear without issue other than an occasional bad resettable breaker.
