Twomed, if OP has the engine running and the generator running, can he toggle the "battery boost" switch and have someone else try to toggle the generator slide in. Would that boost help provide enough power to get that hydraulic pump going?

I had this happen to me 2 weeks ago. Yes there is a way to manually retract the genny.

It wouldn't be fun or easy to do for the first time at nite. But here goes

There are 4 electric/manual solenoids, 1 for living room extend, 1 for living room retract, 1 for genny extend, and 1 for genny retract. They normally operate electricly, but they each have a T-handle on the frt for manual operation in case there's a electrical problem.

Look low and to the left of the genny and find the HWH slideout electric motor and relay, pump, fluid resevour, 2 fuses, wires, and the 4 solenoids mentioned before. I believe the rightside lower solenoid is the retract solenoid for the genny. Turn open(ccw) the T-handle fully, push in the genny, then crawl under the coach and close(cw) the same T-handle fully.

You could have blown a fuse, or have a bad + or - connection at the connectors, or a bad connection(loose nut) at the relay that you see straped on the top of the electric motor.

Do your overhead 12 volt lights work. What else does work? If the dash lights are not working then the ignition system is not being powered as well it appears. My MH will start with the salesman switch off. Will yours normally??? If the answer is no head to the distribution panel below the drive outside. Snap a picture if possible. If you see a large device with a large wire on each post grab your voltmeter and check each post. You should see 12.5 on each large post if energized. If you see it on one side only, turn your batteries off, remove the cables and either stack them on one post or bolt them together.

One other issue that has not come up in a long time is a pair of splices made above the rear axel. These have been known to go intermittent. I do not remember the sypmtoms but will research that as soon as I post this. I am including a couple of pictures to help move things along. If you can post a few pictures it will really speed things up.

Go down a couple of post and you will see a picture of the chassis splices.

Worth a try. Hope that just running gen all night will get them up and running. Pretty sure though they are are on a trip to FL from up north so if he had been running all day and batts were any good they should have been charged. Assuming grounds are good. Hate stuff like this especially in a rest area when you want to be somewhere fun.

I suspect he has. I offered my home phone number in a PM late yesterday. Playing 20 questions over the internet while broke down would not be fun. A phone call can often sort things out much quicker.
