You should be able to control the unwanted movement by disconnecting the controller for that slide or the dedicated fuse, so you can re-connect the batteries.
High humidity could be an issue.

Thanks I'll let the electrician know when he comes this afternoon. I know so little. I've been parked in Page AZ. Lost the 12v panel last weekend in the bathroom. Two bathroom lights and exhaust fan. Electrician had fixed that except couldn't figure out why one of the overhead lights in dining room, bank of flourescents and halogens over desk area in bedroom wouldn't go on. Heard funny noise under fridge this am and overhead 12v lights flickered. Ran outside and unplugged from power pole but beeping noise and slide srarted. We have had a lot of rain but now a/c doesn't work. Because of battery? And fridge is off. Sigh....:-(

Your t/stat & fridge control panel, need 12v power to operate.
So until you can hook up the batteries , you're in trouble.
My t/stat had a low battery , alarm ; something that wasn't in the owners manual, started beeping when battery volts got down to 11 volts, converter/charger had tripped 110 circuit breaker a couple of days before.

Well I had the electrician over. The 'circuit board' for the back slide went bad. I'm not moving the Moho since I'm here teaching...so he's going to find the part and install. He rehooked up battery so I have a/c, fridge etc. Yay!Thanks so much for all the good advice!
