Slide issues on AC Rev

Strange issues on two of our slides. First of all, full wall seems to work good. The curb side bedroom and living area slide are not operating as they should be. Large slide started having issues at the beginning of this year, would go out part way then stop. Did the inch by inch thing, but once I started up the Gen set it would work fine. Bedroom wouldn't go out at all this weekend, left it alone with the 50 amp plugged in, tried it about an hour later and it worked fine.
Batteries are less than a year old on the chassis side, lots of power, shows 12.8 on the gauge and 14 when charging. Going to look at my connections and see if there might be a corroded wire....was hoping someone might have had the same issue. Strange why the full wall slide has no issues going in or out. By the way, the issue only seems to be going out. Coming in has not been an issue.

The 14 volt is not accurate because it's the charger throwing volts at them. Have you tried switch on or with the engine running or with the batteries at full charge. Since it worked after being plugged in I'd say weak battery. Coming in is probably not a problem because it's been plugged in for a few days camping.

Thanks, yes, the engine has to be running for our slides to work. I was curious if the full wall slide is powered by the house batteries and the other two by the chassis? I may look into that, it would explain why the full wall works good and the other two on the curb side have the issue.

humm i would say one of your ground boxs is not doing so good

your wiring is good to your big slide

so some where under some thing is your ground box that if you have this type .. looks like some thing out of a AC home type box

a fuse could not be in all the way too

but really sounds like wiring

They all should be powered by house batteries.
