2 slides no power 2015 salem forest river 32bhds

I have juice to everything except the slides...I know its a fuse or breaker as my wife was extending the slide then nothing.

I went through the forum and found the reset button and fuse on the front undercarriage near the battery. Replaced fuse, still nothing...I reset the small button on top but is it supposed to stay in or is it like your internet modem where you press it for 5 seconds and life goes on. The reset button did not stay in if it was supposed to.

I have no tripped breakers in the panel that I can see and there is no fuse labeled for slides.

What can I look at next before I lose my summer fun at the dealer for 45 days...

just taking a guess. does it have a remote control unit that can be used to operate the slides? if so the fuse is on the receiver / control board.

Often there are two of those resettable breakers hooked together for your hydraulic pump, if that's what you have. Make sure the little button is pressed for both of them, if you have two. Often they are joined by a little copper bus bar.

2 Slide No Juice Update

So still no juice to only the slides. I am in search of the bad fuse or breaker(??).
I did press the poppit...no change
I replaced the fuse not shown in picture behind cover-plate.
The remote is working all other items except slides.

New fact...When I press the button on the control panel to extend no noise but when I use the remote a clicking does occur in the main breaker panel.

Still no juice yet but listening to your inputs. I have attached pictures for reference.

what other devices does the remote operate? is it a lippert remote? did you check the remote receiver / controller board fuses?

Remote operates awning, stabilizers, and outside lights. The breaker panel and fuse box had no faults or burnouts from what I saw.

there have been a couple of recent posts about issues with the devices the remote operates. i had a problem with mine. in both cases it was a blown fuse on the control board. again check the fuses on the control board that receives the signals from the remote. the fuses for the devices the remote operates are on this control board. they are not is the fuse panel. i am saying this based upon having a lippert remote and control board. if yours is another brand this may not apply.

I have a similar set up to yours. Isnít there a circuit breaker right next to the slide motor? The fuse that was in the electrical box up front was for the 12v coming from your tow vehicle- might want to consider changing that to a resettable fuse/breaker. That other breaker next to it is for the main battery power. If I go by my unit this weekend, Iíll snap a pic

If you get in a real jam, you could just hold a piece of jumper wire from the battery hot terminal to the hydraulic motor positive post to make it run. Or if your hydraulic motor runs but just not the slides, then hook a jumper wire to your slide solenoids. Or swap the leads that go to the leveling jack solenoid to the slide solenoid. then operate the jacks in manual mode which will actually be operating the slide solenoid.

Sometimes it is a bad piece of circuitry on the computer board (Alta board) that fails to trigger the correct solenoid to open. That's why I suggested to move the control wire from a jack solenoid to a slide solenoid, then operate that jack in manual mode, which would actually then be triggering the slide solenoid to open.

Still no luck.

I'm scheduled to take my trailer in next week. Been doing a lot of research and reading and wanted to post this PDF for anyone that gets a slide stuck with no power.

2 Slide No Juice UPDATE...I Have Juice

Fuses replaced in Control Panel that I couldn't find for my slides. This location is not noted in the owner manual LOL. Thanks to Camping World for hooking me up and showing me. I had a 45 point inspection scheduled on the trailer and the tech showed me the location.

Here are photos for future reference:
