Breaker issue?

Slides go in and out on hooked up truck power. No lights IN RV and refer does not ignite on propane.

What am I not checking?

1) Bad battery(ies).

2) Bad converter.

3) Wiring issue, connection issue.

Silverback.
Are you connected to shore power?

Do you have a battery installed in the RV? Is it charged?

If not connected to a form of shore power, but do have a good battery, you can start here:

Just had battery checked; good. My unit only has 1. I carry a back up fully charged, just in case. Everything worked on shore power all week.
Going to investigate your ďlinkĒ tomorrow when I visit the storage area.

You just reminded me that there is a panel of circuit breakers near the battery in the front storage compartment.
Iíll start there.

I was about to ask if you have checked your fuse/breaker panel.

Sounds like your battery disconnect switch is off, or the inline circuit breaker is tripped. Your slide most likely connects directly to the battery and has its own fuse/ circuit breaker.

It was a tripped breaker. All good. Thanks for the excellent responses as usual. My ac quit in the truck 50 miles north of home. Fried my brain 🤪.
