Slide problem

I have 2015 36CKTS and never had issue with slides. The RV has set for all most two years because of medical problems. Iíve replaced the 4 6v batteries and they are reading 13.3v. The level up system works fine as well as other dc components.

When I tried the slide out the bedroom slide came out about an inch and pump turned off and wonít run now. So hopefully just a breaker somewhere I canít find. I checked the 30A fuse and itís fine. The two small breakers that I found I just pushed them.

Iíve attached pictures of what Iím looking at. The photo with the pump there is a switch, not sure what that is for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks...Bill

Under all that mess of red wires and bus bars in the first pic are at least 3 and maybe 4 breakers. They should have a small button on the side. It's a reset. Press them and see if that helps.

I found them, there are three. Feel pretty flimsy for circuit breakers. I pressed all three. I also checked with meter getting 12v on other side of strip

Thanks

The white switch in your second photo operates the slides

I know the pump operates for the level up system. I’ve never paid attention but I assumed because of the three valves for the slide outs left of the pump that the slide out system is hydraulic as well.

I’m appalled that something that cost as much as a beginner house has no documentation or diagrams of its systems.

Yes they are the solenoids valves for the slides (there are some for the jacks too) and are normally only used when something else prevents you from operating the slides and/or jacks electronically (such as loss of total power). You need a 5/16 allen wrench to turn the screw in the end of the solenoid and would do that in conjunction with using a drill with a 1/4 square adapter to drive the pump (have to break the seal ). If you don't have any Lippert documentation try googling for it.

You should also have a way to isolate them which most likely (not positive about this) will be in the same driver side compartment that has your water hookups, battery disconnect, dump valves, hot water bypass valves, etc. The knobs should all be in a bank next to each other pointed up. To prevent the slides from moving you would rotate the knob 180 degrees clockwise down. You can isolate in any combination, everyone but one if you want.

Side note about the front jack's solenoid as the tech at my dealer didn't even know about what you had to do to manually raise the jacks. On my unit it is on the top of the driver side jack and the screw is towards the front of the unit. You cannot see the screw, but have to feel for the hole and then slip the allen wrench into it (like being blindfolded). The best way I found to reach it is through my battery compartment and reaching in on the top of the jack and feel down a little along the front with your fingers till you encounter it. Don't ask me how I know (then- now-).

Good luck and be safe.

Thanks for all responding. If I’m picking up 12v on the right side of the bus bar with the circuit breakers then they must be good right? There’s a 30A fuse that is good as well.

I have battery battery to the reversing solenoid. The control wires run to the RF Alto component (GS-RLM-01). Checked out all the fuses on it.

Almost out of ideas

Since in your picture the bus/breakers are turned sideways I'm guessing that the right side should be the bottom, but in essence you should have +12 volts on both sides of the breakers when referenced to negative (ground). If you don't, then one or more of the breakers are tripped.

Another area to check is in the wet bay, are the slide controls turn off? At least on my Creek there are three switches to turn off the slide movement. This is so, you can move one slide at a time which I have done in the past.

Another area to look at is the control panel there is a switch that you can turn on and off that is labeled slide on and off. Make sure this is on also.

Just a suggestion to look at, since the unit has sat for two years!

I really appreciate everyone’s advice and suggestions, such a great forum. I’ve tried and looked at them all. I do have an appointment with a dealer to get some axle work done and they said they could look at it. I really want to figure this out though for my own understanding.

The level up system uses hydraulics and I’m assuming the slides do to, just through a series of hydraulic solenoids on which system should receive hydraulic power. That makes me believe it’s a control issue and not power.

Looks like a potted relay. I bet if you pulled it off the plate and looked at the side of it there are mfg. and model numbers on it.

Figured out there blocking diodes to isolate the Lippert level up system, according to Alta Components

Hereís a picture of the back of the mysterious black box. With everything Iíve checked I believe the GS-RLM-01 is defective. They do have a few left in stock for $200 plus processing and S/H. During my research seems like this is a common component subject to failure

That appears to be a custom part just for LCI. Blocking diodes makes sense.

Ordered the module today from American Technology Components - $220 and some change. Seriously thought of just building my own setup with $5 relays. That’s all it really is with remote capability that we never use,

A side note is they told they have 3 or 4 on hand. Once those are gone they will build a module, as long as the components are still available, on as needed basis. If the components are not available then that module is retired.

I have a 2015 38CK. My bedroom slide is Schwintek electric motor system. Other slides are hydraulic system. Try toggling slide switch from out to in an it should move aleast a couple of inches on each jog.
