2007 Sierra triple slides won’t work

Leaving Flaming Gorge this morning and when I tried to close my slides nothing. The hydraulic motor does nothing. I checked all the fuses in the main power panel and breakers all ok. There was a 30 amp fuse behind the battery’s under the hydraulic motor but good also. There is a second switch in front of the hydraulic motor but nothing as well. It’s 200 miles from anything up there. I had no volt Ohm meter so could not check power to the hydraulic motor. Also saw no circuit breaker type fuses anywhere. Help. Any ideas

Possibly a contactor. That “clicks in” the hydro pump. You should be able to use a drill with a 1/4 or 5/16 bit possibly to run the pumps manually. I know I had to help a friend with his SOB a couple years back that way. Used my dewalt cordless impact driver and it spun it easily.

If you have 12v power elsewhere, then it has to be a fuse of some type. You might have an inline resettable type that looks like a relay. It has a small black button to press to reset.

I have found inline fuses in the darndest places, so keep looking.

If all else fails, and you have a drill you can manually operate the pump, but you have to open the correct hydraulic valves to close the slides. You can find documentation on this at the lippert website.

Any mobile techs in your area?

Good luck.

Had my 5th wheel Jack's and slides stop at the last campground I was in. Called a mobile guy and he crossed out a buss bar and a contact on a re-setable breaker. Having trouble uploading photos due to bad coverage. Give me you cell phone number and I'll try to text them to you. One is what he crossed out and the other is a picture of a new breaker that you can get from any auto parts store. While he had it jumped I could operate jacks and slides. My cell number is 843-813-0145. Send a text and I'll reply.
