The battery is a good place to start, check the voltage and amps.
Is the slide in or out?

I didn't check the battery. We had just stopped after a 10hr drive, the slide went out but when we got ready to leave it would not return. Had to crank it in.

I believe there is an inline fuse just underneath the camper sort of behind where the battery is located.

Most likely the fuse. When putting the slide in it makes clicking sounds when it is all the way in. The dealer said to never let it click more than once or twice or you will blow a fuse. We had to take ours into the dealer to find out where the fuse was. Now we carry a couple extra.

Is the fuse in the converter box or is it in line?

Was it the fuse? If so, where did you find it?

Yes, please let us know if it was the fuse and where it is and what kind of fuse. I have a 2014 21FBRS and don't want to have to hand crank the slide.

Look in the storage compartment by the water pump. I believe I saw a fuse holder near there when we cleaned out the storage compartment earlier this year.

There is a 30 amp inline fuse on the inside of the frame directly under the storage compartment. Easy job, but wounder why the just didn't put it in the box where the panel is for all other fuses are.

Follow the red wire coming from the battery under the A-frame front of trailer directly under the storage compartment you will find a red fuse holder, remove the fuse cover replace the 30amp fuse with a new 30 fuse and your slide out will work fine.

Just wanted to confirm same problem with 2015 Micro-Light RBS 21 slideout. Just as Gene and Betty had, we returned from a 10-hour drive with a brand new 21RBS, extended the slide to clean the floor from our first weekend's camping. When we attempted to retract the slide, nothing happened. We did a search on this forum and found this thread. As suggested, I found the red line off the battery, followed it to an inline fuse under the body below the storage comparment. There I, too, found a blown fuse. I replaced the 30-amp fuse and retracted the slide. Moral. If the slide don't work, check the inline fuse first. Thanks for the thread.

We too had the same issue. We keep a good supply of fuses on hand in the TT. They come in handy.

This is great to know! In our old trailer we thought it was the crank motor that went bad, never checked for a fuse. Makes sense!
