Sounds like you may have a battery issue. Is the slide that is not coming in the largest slide on your RV? Could be you just don't have the power to handle the load? Try jumping the battery or changing it out..

If you are plugged into shore power, is you battery disconnect switch on or off? Your slides won't work right on shore power only.

According to instrument panel, battery showing full charge, had converter replaced few years back.Not sure how accurate this reading is without testing battery.

Battery disconnect switch is on position. I remember a few years back lights dimmed under a load, replaced converter all was good. It as during summer when we ran ac, lights, etc.

If your battery disconnect is switched to disconnect, the instrument panel battery meter will read converter 12v only. Not enough power to operate slides.

Last slide to go in is the big slide. Slide in bedroom goes in first, then two living room slides which are the same size.

Stoker, Try this.. Push the battery test button and at the same time push the slide button.. See what the battery level LEDs do. When you check it static there is no load and I'm not sure how accurate they are anyway.

If the LEDs drop down significantly then your battery voltage is dropping due to a load issue and you just don't have the juice ( current) from the battery you need..

Stoker, Lets just review where we are or where I think you are..

Shore power connected...
50 amp shore power breaker on...
Battery disconnect switch in compartment on...
New or not to old battery...

It just concerns me that your lights dim and the pump clucks.. Reminds me of trying to turn a starter over in a car with a bad or weak battery..

One more thing.. Check the connection to your battery posts.. Make sure they are tight and clean... Sorry if I'm being a pest but I'd like to get you closed up and sometime we overlook the simple things..

Rite, everything u listed a go. The lights is what makes me think a battery issue as well. Just out of curiosity, what is average life span for a battery. My unit is 6 years old, and has been stationary. Minus the factory battery, thus is the first one I've replaced
