Slide Out Problem

Had a great weekend in the RV but after we got home my rear slide won't go out. There's nothing when I hit the toggle switch in or out. No movement, no noise at all. I'm assuming an electrical issue and maybe a fuse somewhere? But, I have no idea where to look. It's a 2008 Lexington GTS 255 DS. The front slide is working fine still. I don't have any books or manuals that show where fuses are located. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm having same trouble with one of my slide but fuses are good now trying to figure if there might be reset switches for each of them but don't have a clue as to where to look

Slides not controlled by fuses. They are are controlled thru a mini circuit breaker, one for each slide. Their located in or behind a panel marked Battery Control Center, and should be near the house batteries. The slides are powered by 12 volts, and if the circuit breaker is good, check the condition of your battery. Even if plugged into a 30 amp pedestal, if batteries are bad, slides won't work.

Well, my 2007 HTT's slideout blew its fuse all the time for awhile.
It was a 30 amp fuse just for the slideout.

Don't know what an HTT is, but class c mh use mini circuit breakers not fuses. Maybe older units use fuses, but newer, like my 2012 Lexi use circuit breakers.
There is also a main circuit breaker in the panel that has a small reset button. That may also be a problem, but doubt it since OP stated one of the slides was working.

HTT is a Hybrid Travel Trailer.
Most travel trailers I know of, have fuses for the slideout.
Newer ones too.

Thanks I've looked everywhere for circuit breakers and have found none I've looked in all compartments and behind fuse panel insid trailer nothing. I have a 31ft 5th wheel with RL and 2 slides in rear. I do know slides are 12 volt not hydrolic. Someone said that they might be limit switches on each slide that may be getting hung but a service center told me they have never heard of it. Idk

I had a fuse under the tongue for each slide that would randomly blow.

I was responding to the OP who has a Lexington mh, which, if like mine, uses mini circuit breakers in a seperate Battery Control Center.
