Slide issue

Went to winterize fifth wheel, all goes well for the first time in a while until we bring slides in, all but one slide goes in, living room slide. Battery on instrument panel shows fully charged. Just clicks and lights in living room dim. Dealer claims low battery or bad converter. Slides run off one switch. Had battery and converter replaced few years back when lights dimmed and battery wouldn't hold charge. Dealer said it was OK to leave slides out during winter . My concerns are weight of snow on slide, critters getting in, leaking past rubber seals and damaging slide topper with weight of snow. Trailer is stationary at rv park. Thoughts and opinions please.

I would not leave the slide out during the winter.


Now can you plug into shore power and bring the slide in? I have never used just my battery to move the slides in/out, I am always plugged into shore power. My two pervious 5er's required shore power to move the slides and I just carried this over to my CC 34RL. Also make sure that the switch in the service bay is not turned off to move in the living room slide.


Hope this helps?

Are these Swchintech electric slides or hydraulic slides? I just had my electric slide motor replaced because of a problem with one of the motors.
