2008 cardinal

Having a problem with slide outs and landing gear! Will not open up unless hooked up to shore power. Landing gear won't work unless on shore power. Battery is fully charged running out of idea,s . All fuses that I can find are good any ideas?

I would still check the battery. When I had my 2007 Cardinal, I couldn't get my slide back in after being hooked up to shore power for several days. The slide out and landing jacks run off of the battery. I took it to the dealership and they replaced the battery and everything was fine. Just a thought, although I am not an expert with electrical stuff. Perhaps someone else will chime in.

Just had the same problem. Had a new battery turns out the inverter was bad and not charging the battery making the charging noise but not giving any juice to the battery
