Guys we are home free. Thank you for all that knowledge you guys have. I went to the drawing board [tech library] and pulled a rabbit out of my hat. It took awhile to understand the prints. The panel the power came out of was c-21 the same that feeds the driving lights. Bad Board. Thank you Dave and Old Scout for putting up with my Ky ways.
Thank you all!!

Ok everyone here's what I have now. When I turn on head lights, rather its low beam or high beam when I switch the driving lights when motor is running on they come on. I'm happy. So I pull it out of the building and still playing and decided to bring slides out. I leveled the coach and rear slide came out and retracted. Front large slide in a bind and stopped. New job to start on. Not sure unless rubber stuck on one side. It came out about 2inches on side away from driver and the side closest to driver was stuck. It is raining now put back in my narrow building and read some on this. Is there only one pump on hwh for this. There where four manual handle valves there I saw. In the picture it showed two more for the slides. Just asking to get my bearing right. Thanks everyone for help on driving lights, need a little input on slides. I read you can open those valves but I only see four.
Thanks again

You "leveled the coach"--assume you mean you lowered the jacks to do so--on the 03, jacks must be down and coach level for main slide to fully extend. Also need to check fluid level in HWH reservoir [should be between marks on stick with all slides in and jacks retracted...."manual handles" are for releaving pressure so slides can be closed by hand.

ps-- how about starting a new thread as you find more issues?

Hello Larry, the larger Solenoid valves there should be four (4) with a T handle are for the Jacks. There should be six (6) smaller solenoid valves two (2) for each slide, for extend and retract. They have a -inch nut you must loosen per the Service Manual, which is available on the ACA web site Technical Library.

Yes, I will try and make a new thread. I keep changing issues. I know what I have learned with you guys may help somebody out. I looked at the old threads and saw a lot of issues but couldn't make it work with mine. I also saw what happens when someone has a different Brand trying to help. Old Scout I did read the manual and I did level the Coach with the Jacks. Sometimes I'm not clear with everything I do, the only thing as I read I didn't do was turn the power on the HWH panel. I wish I could of set around a camp fire with you guys and pulled a lot of info from you. I saw back threads about shocks and brakes. Again Thank You!

Well, everyone again all is well. Old Scout I went down your list and it popped loose. I guess no one has sprayed any dry powder are that spray that keeps it from sticking. All is well, thanks for your help Dave and Old Scout. Today I clean up all the mess I have made. I'm hoping that I winterized her right and no water problems. I came in the house last night heard a pop and the flex line on the hot water heater popped. I was just walking in turned water off and repaired. So life is good and if you ask the right people they can pull you through. One more thing I took her down to my tire dealer and had the tires checked and put the best as steer tires and had all balanced and new valve stems put in. They where the original stems and where leaking. She Drives great. Thanks everyone and I will start a new thread for my next problem.
