Slide Outs On My Sanibel 3251 Fifth Wheel???

OK, so I need help. Three slides on this Sanibel. Front bedroom operates perfectly. Two living room slides went out perfect - no noise or binding I could see. Now the front went back in perfectly. The two living room slides are totally dead. I checked and found: hydraulic fluid full, no obvious leaks - battery 100% and plugged into shore power. No fuses blown that I could find??? Lights are bright, everything works. Level seems perfect with computer pulling it up and working levelers. But the living room slides are dead. Not a relay click, not a grind, not a lurch not a sound. I know there must be a relay or reset somewhere. Please - any help appreciated. Mike P.

Hello MikeyP. Hopefully I can help since I have the same model. You didn't mention what year yours is so hopefully everything is in the same location as mine.
In the very front compartment on the curb side you should find your battery, hydraulic pump, resovoir, solonoid, valves & a bunch of wiring. You'll trace the large guage red cable from the hydraulic pump solonoid to a Buss bar containing several resettable breakers. The breaker that you find the red cable going to may have tripped. Check it over thoroughly for a tiny black or red button on either end or side. Press the button to reset it & see if the slides operate.

Thanks!

Thanks Racer. This is the info I think I needed. FYI it is a 2015. I did check the compartment and did not see any resets - which is what I suspect it may be - but then I did not have the help you have offered. I am guessing since it was not readily locate-able at first, it is tiny and could be on the back of the relay out of sight? Will not be able to look right now as we left it on our site - open - down in Florida, and will not be back until Thanksgiving. This is the first thing I will try before calling in a $$$$ mobile RV mechanic. Thanks!
