36qbok, main slide not working

My guess is that a fuse is blown- I'm just not sure where to look for it (I haven't tried yet).

The last time I brought in the slide just after winterizing the camper, I tried to run it back out for something and it just didn't respond at all. I just tried putting the slide out this morning to stash Christmas gifts in the camper and the slide did the same. I push the button and nothing happens.

Any idea where I should look for the fuse at? Or breaker or any ideas?

Fuses are above the breakers in the power invertet panel. Also at the battery.

Ugh. The converter panel is a hassle to get to with the slide in. I'll look in there- I do recall they're well labeled. Are there any in-line fuses for slides usually? And if so, so do I find them?

My batter setup is pretty simple- just goes from the battery to a strip on the wall of the camper. I don't recall any fuses there. I can look again. I'll be able to check in a bit when I get back.

Got it working today. The fuse for the slide appeared to be fine. To be safe, I pulled the fuse for the radio and put it into the slide's spot. Still no go.

I tried plugging the camper into shore power to see if it was a battery issue, but again- no go.

In my fuse panel, I have a resettable 30amp fuse. The message said push a tab to reset and it was sticking out. I pushed it and the slide started working.

I haven't tried on battery power, but my bet is that it'll work.

I am curious what made the 30amp fuse to blow and need to be reset.

ependy, sometimes they seem to just pop. I would not worry that you are in an overload situation. Others more experienced on this may chime in. But for me I would continue on, now knowing if it happens again what to do to fix!

Agreed. We've gone for 3 seasons now without an issue there- I'm apt to let lying dogs lie.
