Slides won't retract...

2002 Winnebago Journey DL w/two slides. Diesel, Cat 330 HP.

Of course, today was the day I leave this RV park by 10AM and just started the process by trying to retract the BR slide. Nothing. Dead. Pretty sure this is an electrical slide as the HWH book doesn't mention anything but the front slide.

The front slide won't retract either. And it is on the HWH hydraulic system. Desperate, I started the engine, check the BR circuit breakers, checked the under hood fuses and breakers, checked the 12 volt breakers under the refer.

Nothing is marked 'Slides' anywhere. If there is a fuse, or a 12 volt breaker, they've not marked it very well.

I'm searching the Winnie electrical drawings now...

Anyone know where I should look for the slide power and fuses or 12 volt breakers???

Help!

OK, never mind. I did have a HWD Series 310 book, and close examination of the drawings in there showed that there's a little 2 wire connection to the control box under the dash. Somehow, it walked off the connector. Pushing that back on restored operation. To both slides.

Funny thing is that I operated the BR slide yesterday to get to the hose easier and it was fine. Didn't crawl around under the dash afterwards so I'm at a loss of how that connector just jumped off there. I'll tape it on later today.

I also see I was mistaken in thinking my rear slide is electric and that I just couldn't hear the motor operate. The HWH takes care of that with a single hydraulic ram.

So, back up and running, and I'll be on the road in 45 minutes.

Thanks!
