no power to slides, where's the fuse?

"It was working when I parked it!" lol Re: a 36CKTS 5th wheel hooked up to shore power, there is no power to the slides, or the awning. Can anyone tell me where to find the fuse? or the reset button? or whatever I need to look for? My weekend adventure is in jeopardy!

check in the battery area along the frame for a resettable fuse on the heavy wire leading to the slides.

Look for one of these and push the little black button. Usually in the proximity of the batteries in the basement or wherever the rats nest of wires is

I had the same problem with my 2015 29RE. I pulled the fuses (on mine two 20 AMP) cleaned the contacts and reinstalled them. Problem solved. On my 29RE the fuse panel is at the base of the stairs. Hope this helps.

Your slides are hydraulic I assume. Check,the resettable breakers for the hydraulic motor. In the front basement behind the plastic cover against firewall. See pics below..

Iím pointing to the small reset buttons on side of brear

OP has a fifth wheel which typically has the batteries in the basement so most fuses, resettable, or auto reset, are there also. No need to run them outside on the frame.

Our 2015 Cardinal 3875FB had that issue that was resolved by resetting the knife breakers near the hydraulics in the front compartment. It is black on black, so a flashlight is helpful in locating it.

CC fuses

Dalford is exactly correct. Great pictures! A head lamp is helpful as it hard to see in the front storage area. Also check the electrical cables to your pump and tighten. These are the 1/4Ē battery posts on the solenoid. When they get loose, it trips the breakers. If that fails, you can try a jumper on the solenoid.

If this becomes a nuisance, replace the fuse with a thermal automatic reset one. Had this problem on my first 5th wheel's landing gear and living room slides.

Make sure you use the same amperage though...

Or you can use a manual one:

Post #5 nailed it for my Cedar Creek 5th wheel. The top picture is rotated 90 degrees though.
