3 slides 'dead'

After a 3 week rest following a 10 day camp, none of the 3 slide outs on my 5th wheel works. Not even a click. All other utilities works fine. Batteries ( 2 x in parallel) fully charged. Tried to locate in-line fuses etc. but no luck. [Flagstaff Ultra Light 8528 RSWS 5th wheel]. Any suggestions ? and thank you !

Are they hydraulic slides? If so, look for a 15 amp in-line fuse near the pump and replace if blown. It powers all the hydraulic system electronics. It may be hidden behind other wires and is usually inside a plastic holder with a cover.

Being Flagstaff, should be 2 Lippert electric slides and 1 BAL Accuslide on the wardrobe in that model. In that case, my guess is the fuses to the slide motors should be in the main 12v fuse panel, which in most cases is next to or part of the main power center. Not really sure on the Flagstaff. Every electric slide I've had in the past, the fuse was amongst all the others in the panel.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

On my travel trailer they are not in the fuse box but are in-line fuses under the trailer just aft of the left A-frame side. The wire is directly connected to the battery.

Yours being a 5th Wheel does not have an A-frame so if they are not in the fuse box I would try and trace wires back from the battery to see if you have any in-line fuses that look something like this:

3 slides -mystery resolved!

Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread. I phoned the service manager at the Flagstaff Dealership, who pointed out that there are 2 breakers situated just behind the battery, and to the right of the battery cut-off switch. [ See pictures ]. These breakers' reset buttons are NOT visible (pointing downwards), but can be felt as a small button at the bottom of the breaker. I just pushed the button, it reset and my slides were revived!. Thanks Sheldon at Paradise RV in Leduc for your help.

I suspected that is where you would find the fuse (in your case breakers). Glad to see it resolved.
