HELP - Stuck: slideout and jacks not working

I have a 2011 Monaco Knight and for some strange reason the front road-side slide out and jacks will not work. They worked great the last 3 months, but have decided not to work now - AND we are 900 miles from home!

Can anyone help? I checked all the fuses I know about - all look good. Did not realize the slide-out and jacks were part of the same system. Is there a breaker that could be tripped someone "hidden" inside the motorhome?

Right now I get all lights flashing on the jack control module as well as a dead font slide-out.

I must be missing a breaker somewhere - but where? Any help is great appreciated as we are literally stuck (the jacks are down!) 900 miles from home.

Thank you.

Check the basement doors under the slides to make sure they are closed and locked.

On some Monaco coaches, there is a switch on these doors that prevents the slide from moving if the door is not closed. Sometimes the switch looses its adjustment and fails to show the door is closed.

If the switch has removable spade type wiring connectors, disconnect them and connect them to an automotive fuse. This will make the circuitry appear that the door is closed and if that switch was the problem, then the slide should work.

If the front road-side slide and jacks are both hydraulic, that could be the problem. It also could be that the hydraulic reservoir is low on fluid. Monaco wires fuses in-line, under the chassis, right near the hydraulic pump on many coaches.

This could be an easy fix. Find the hydraulic pump and jiggle the cables while the other tries to operate the slide. Start with the thick black ground wire. Could be as simple as a corroded ground connection.

This may have the dreaded LCI jacks/hydraulic jack leak...

There is a swing switch breaker for this in the battery compartment which sits toward the rear on the left wall once you are in the battery compartment. ..Check there first and it may have to be reset. Hopefully the jack didn't fry itself because of the known leak issue like RV Ron's did...Check this breaker...then call LCI and get the hydraulic pump replaced...Monaco had a ton of these when the transition to Navistar occurred and they just used them...to our disadvantage.
