Sounds like maybe a blown fuse. Check your wiring underneath. On ours, there is a 30 amp flat blade fuse in the power supply to the slide motor. If everything else has power, I'd start there.

Yep blown fuse. Happened to me too, brand new 2014. The fuse for mine was located on the frame where the wiring goes underneath the trailer. Just follow where your trailer plug cable goes. I replaced it with a 30 A automatic reset circuit breaker. Problem solved.

Yeah. It seems any little catch or bind in the slide mechanism blows that fuse.

My slide wasn't 100% square and straight when I bought my TT and I probably went through a half dozen fuses until I could get into the dealer and get the slide fixed and straightened under warranty. It hasn't blown a fuse since.

check the 30 amp fuse. we had the same issue on our 2703ws.
Also check that the battery has a good charge, a low battery under load can cause some weird things to happen.

So far so good. the wife and I love the floor plan, Tows a bit light but I usually add about 1/2 tank in the freshwater tank to help that. I've had a few minor issues with mine:
Toilet leaked 1st trip out...
Blew fuses on WR slide and DR Slide
and had a leak on the DS rear window
Took it to my local dealer and they fixed everything and also installed a re-settable CB to fix the fuse blowing issue...
Now my only issue is being able to take time off to enjoy it!!!
