Installed House Batteries - Stairs wont retract

I took my house batteries out after our spring trip to add water and recharge. I just installed them and hooked up cables and my stairs will not retract. I clicked on the power button down by the door to check other electrical stuff.. floor lights, outside lights - OK, awning will not extend -- generator comes on - house AC works and house lights work, engine starts fine. Is there a fuse/ ground fault I need to check someplace? 2011 Georgetown 360DS Gas

usually when something changes a person need to revisit the last thing they did, in your case it was winning the batteries you reinstalled I would start there and ensure they are correctly wired. Assuming they are six volt they should be in series.

Yep. You were right. I looked at my phone pic that I did 2 yrs ago and found a 15amp wire hidden. I hooked it in and everything works now. Thank you.

Found my error. Pays to take a phone pic to document what it looked like before I start any DIY stuff.. Lol.

Thanks for getting back to the forum with what you found. Taking a pic is very good insurance for even a simple a job being completed correctly
