Lippert Slide Controls not getting power (Leprechaun 320BH)

Good evening. I am new to RVing I have a 2016 Coachman Leprechaun 320bh. I had to replace the step/bat box. After hooking everything back up I have power to the entire RV except the slide controls. Neither one of the controls has LED lights on and the slides are not working. I believe its an electrical issue but cannot pinpoint the issue. I cant imagine both controls going bad at the exact same time. Is there a fuse somewhere that I cannot find? I bought the RV used and I was not given an owners manual. Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Look for a resettable fuse in the battery area that provides power to the slides. Usually a rectangle shape with a button reset.

Thanks SeaDog. I have looked there but not able to find a resettable fuse. I have included pictures of the battery box in case I have missed it.

Have you checked the fuses in the red cases?

Lippert slides

I do not have a suggestion for your particular issue but am very interested in the answer as I have fixed my Lippert Slides for other issues and want to know the answer. Unless something has changed, there is now a dedicated slide expert at Forest River to answer all slide questions. In the last several months there was a posting with his contact info. Good luck.

Thanks TARVIDSON! I will go find that thread. I am at my wits end trying to figure this thing out.

Auxiliary Breaker Location

The auxiliary breakers for your RV are located in the wire connection section of your battery box (bottom picture that you posted). They are located in the bottom of that picture. You will see a large red wire connecting on the left of the picture which provides power to the breaker buss bar. The breakers are located under this buss bar with the studs facing out. In your case, you have 3 breakers: the one on the left has a black wire attached, the middle one has a green wire and the right one a red wire. The breaker that concerns me is the one in the middle (the one with the green wire) which does not have a nut on the stud to connect it to the buss bar. This may well be your problem but even if it isn't you need to replace the nut on this stud and snug it down. Most likely your RV has auto-reset breakers which do not have reset buttons, but reset themselves after a period of time.

After you replace the nut mentioned above, use a test light or a voltmeter to ensure that you have 12V on the wire side of each of the three breakers.

Jim you are a hero! Problem solved. If you ever pass through St George, Ut look me up and Ill buy you lunch. My inexperience made this process much more than it needed to be.

Thanks to SeaDog and TARVIDSON for your inputs as well.
