Wireless remote not communicating with slide out, jacks etc.

I recently left the lights on in my trailer causing the batteries to drain. Prior to this my wireless remote would control the awning, slide out etc.. Now that I have the batteries charged back up my wireless remote isn't able to get anything to work. I can of course use the electric switches on the panel to open the slide, lower my jacks and open/close my awning.

I assume the system just needs to get synced back up. So how do I do this? I called the dealer I bought the trailer from, 1 person said to bring it in which I find frustrating so I left a message with the service manager.

I appreciate anyones help.

Thanks Travis

Had same problem. Seems my remote battery was dead at the same time.

I don't think dead batteries would do it-it's the same as using the battery disconnect switch.

This may sound funny but the remote is on a separate system. Meaning if you put it out with the remote and pull it in with the switch the remote will no longer work. You have to get it back to where the remote left it before it will work again. This is how it is on my EVO.

Likely it is a Lippert remote system; remote I recall has LCI on start screen. Their site, under support, provides instructions on syncing your system.

I opened my fuse panel, removed the cover and found the switchboard mounted under/behind the fuse panel. I looked at my panel indentifcation sticker to see what each of the fuses were and one was labeled controller, I pulled this fuse and put back and now my remote works correctly Regardless if I use the panel switch or the remote. I will say the remote doesn't work if I am to far away from the trailer which is a bummer. but oh well.

Does your remote work if the trailer is on shore power?

Our remote transmitter is in the bathroom behind a panel at the bottom of the linen closet! Would've never found that except for a call to Lippert!
