No power to slide out

My slideout worked for the first couple of trips and then there was no power. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this. 2013 Rockwood Roo 23ss. I checked the breakers and fuses, assuming it has to be either the switch or motor?

Look at your current limiters near your battery.
Most commonly there resetable.
Follow the positive cable off the battery you'll find them.

There should be a 30 amp fuse near the battery under the frame. It may be in a green fuse holder. Look for something like this:

There may also be very tiny back reset button the box in the picture that has the wires connected to it...

there is a fuse under the slideout, from what i've read.
usually blows when the switch is held on too long.

i've never had mine blow in the 7 1/2 years i've owned my 23SS(knock on wood), so i'm not sure where it's located.

are your lights working off the battery? if so, then the small resettable breaker wouldn't be the issue.

That fuse is a real money maker for the dealerships

Think about replacing that with an auto resetting fuse. I did and it saves you grief
