HELP, don't know the circuit?
The problem description is a little unclear to me.
Usually, the awning, stabilizers, and slide outs are connected directly to the battery (or to the circuit breaker just downstream from it. They will each have an inline fuse. They are not connected to the distribution panel that has all the automotive-type 10/15/20 amp fuses in it.
So the first line of troubleshooting should be to either disconnect the separate wires for awning, stabilizers, and slideout, or to remove the inline fuses. Then:
--See if everything else works
--Re-connect one of the three items
--See if the problem returns
--Then try the next item, etc.
