Slides won't move.

Yesterday, as we were preparing to head home DW called out "the slides won't come in." Sure enough, all 3 slides are dead. One was in one was out and one was halfway in. Checked the fuses, all good there. Is there another fuse or breaker hidden somewhere? Everything else works.

You said you checked fuses but didn't say where?

Also, my Flagstaff 8529IKBS 5th wheel has no fuses for the slides in the power distribution box but does have a 12v circuit breaker for the slides in the front compartment. Have you checked and/or reset any there? (if equipped) There is also one for the landing gear there too.

They look like this and have a red rubber boot on them.
They have a reset button on the side (little black button)

That's it! Thanks!
Now another question... Where are the tools to manually retract the bedroom slide?

It depends on the slide you have in the bedroom but you may not have any.
I do not.

Our bed slide is a Lippert Low-Pro bed slide and it has a nut on the drive assembly (called manual nut in the schematic) that is the same size as the nut on the drive tube to lower the spare tire... 3/4". No tool came for either but I carry one of these and a cordless drill for both purposes...



Many folks buy these for their scissor jacks. (if equipped)
