Wiring backwards??

We have had our Prime Time Crusader on a trickle charge for the past month. Went to open the slides and now the in button opens the slides and the out button closes them. Also the retract button opens the awning. What???

Did you disconnect any wires anywhere? Somewhere something got physically reversed

Some awnings will just go as far as you tell them to. If you hold the open button it will keep rolling and close up reversing the open/close and the roll direction. Others will stop when opened all way the way only allowing you to do it the proper way and maintaining the direction.

That could explain the awning but not the slide so I am in agreement with others that wiring got reversed somewhere. If you look at the awning is the connection to the trailer at the top or bottom of the roll?

Chances are that you have the battery connected backward. You also likely blew the reverse polarity fuses in the converter, and possibly have damaged something else.

Post back and let us know if that's what you find, and we'll give you some assistance in finding the fuses and what else to check.

Battery hooked up backwards....had this happen last spring

You will need to unhook battery and change the two fuses on the panel and then hook battery up correctly

You have to changes those two fuses while battery is completely disconnected or it will happen again

We had no damage other than those two polarity fuses

Best to take pics of the correct wiring connections, so it doesn't happen again.

If you didn't change the reverse polarity fuses, and you notice that the converter isn't charging the batteries, it'll be those fuses blown. In some units they're in the power panel and in others the converter is remote from the power panel so the fuses are on the converter itself.
