Slide out failure - need help

Hello,
Camping in Florida in a Flagstaff 8528IKWS 5er and when breaking down to move the bedroom slide is not working.....won't come in.

I have looked at the cable chain mechanism and it "looks" okay. Seems to be getting no power. I checked fuses and breakers and all other electrical seems ok (other two slides)

Can I manually pull it in? How?
Any troubleshooting advice appreciated.

Thanks

Wdw0528

Oops.....now realize the front power jacks are also not apparently receiving power. All fuses that I know about are ok.

Suggestions?

Thanks Paul but don't see anything like that. Only thing I see similar is the battery disconnect.

Mine are separate....2 fuses located down behind battery, and 2 behind power dist. center. This 5er doesn't have the resettable type with the button

I know you are all talking about trailers, and I'm talking about our Lexi motor home, but I suspect that the systems are similar. That being said, I found a hidden re-set switch in the Battery control Center that supplies power to everything comming from the battery, including the slides.
In the pics of the battery control center you will see the converter breaker listed . It sits just below the 3, 20 amp mini breakers (gold color) that are for the slides. That converter breaker has a small (read VERY small) re-set switch that is almost impossible to see (black switch on a black housing), and if it pops, none of the slides will work.
Just something else to look for.

AbdRahim - see the pic that Ford Idaho provided on the 6th. That connection is located near my battery and mounted on the wall. It has a very small reset button on the bottom of it that I never noticed......very hard to see.
