I get nothing when on my next trip to the trailer I'll have to check the wiring. The rodents haven't chewed anything in the landing compartment where the pump is I'll have to check continuity and voltage. thanks

I was thinking the same thing Rodent chewed through a wire being stored in a barn there usually are mice in barns. I had my boat motor in my garage and one chewed through the gas line from the pump to the carb. If that won't stop one then a wire if fair game.

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.

Thanks everyone

Like I said I'll check next month when I go back to the trailer. I appreciate all the help and when I find out what the problem is I'll report it to this thread.

Possibly one of the little furry critters took a liking to your wiring?

have no idea whether or not your 5th wheel is wired significantly different from our travel trailer, but our slide has a direct run to batt, thru its own breaker/fuse, and does not go thru the main CB panel/converter -- recommend using your volt-ohm meter to check voltage level at slide system -- if batt is not fully there (slide motor, etc, does have a minimum voltage needed to operate), trace the wire to check for high resistance shorts to ground -- good luck --

My old Wildcat TT had two auto reset breakers just on the inside of the tongue, right side, inline with the side of the battery box. There was a rubber flap covering them. The one for my slide corroded and the slide quit working. Replaced the breaker and all was good.

Had a slide problem with my 2015 Rockport. Checked all of the interior fuses and they were ok. The fuse on my camper was under the battery under the frame that connects to my tow vehicle. The 30A fuse was blown. Replaced it and the slide works normally. Hope this helps.
