There's usually a separate 30 amp fuse just for the slide, underneath the trailer, along the frame.
At least on my Rockwood.

To add for those unfamiliar with the type of inline fuse used it often looks like this:



It's a waterproof holder and the fuse is under the rubber cap.

On my trailer it's on the street side and kind of wrapped up under the Propane tanks near the battery shutoff switch.

Hey Mike & Bikendan... thank you, thank you..!!!! I finally found that hidden 30 amp fuse next the frame, near the batteries. Works now as it should..
Saved me a trip to the RV repair shop !

My slide stopped working yesterday also. This has happened before at least five years ago. As mentioned the 30 amp fuse under the hitch frame was blown. New fuse, all is well. My trailer is a 2013 2109s.

If this becomes an ongoing issue, you can replace that fuse with an auto-reset type for a few bucks. Just make sure you get the correct fuse size.

Use the long legs intact and then wrap with self vulcanizing tape.

My slide didnt work this past weekend. Just where is this fuse located under the unit? I'd like to try to fix this myself.
Thank you for posting this information. I wouldnt have known about a second fuse!

Start with the fuse panel. If all are good, there's probably a separate 30 amp slideout fuse underneath the trailer, near the slideout.

Look within 18 inches of the positive terminal of the battery.

It was located behind my battery in my first unit (5th wheel). Visible above the battery in this one (also a 5th wheel).

Yours could be on a terminal block near the battery or near the umbilical box.

They got it. Just as you said. Reset was tripped.
