It has to be something common to all 3 slides. Main Power, Batteries, Main fuse or breaker. Bad cells in House batteries. A good friend of mine found out his problem was a couple of bad cells in the battery bank. His meter said 12 volts, but With the dead cells there just was not enough power.

Corroded ground wire at the hydraulic pump was the cause of our slides not working. Wiggle the cables at the hydraulic pump while some one tries the slide out switch.

My 2002 has a black reset type breaker that is below the main switches. they are located in the last bay on the passenger side. it has an arm that pops out and you just push it in. mine has popped twice in the last year. hope this helps Art

I just completed a major troubleshooting cycle with my main electric slide going through the entire diagnostic path only to find it was indeed the motor.

As Cliff has suggested, I would contact Power Gear via email and outline your situation. They do respond very quickly, within the hour likely, and most likely put you in the right direction saving you a lot of head scratching and testing in the wrong direction.

My bet would be they will isolate the problem in short order...

Again, thanks for all your the advice, I greatly appreciate it.
LSC9901...no resolution yet...thanks for asking.

I was able to, with the help of a friend, get the slides in and that is a good feeling, albeit not totally. However, still nothing at the switches. We check connections, breakers, fuses (that we could find) and did a lot of head scratching. I'm afraid there is a fuse hidden that I haven't come across yet...ugh. I've searched through all the manuals I have and could find online. It would be awesome to find an electrical diagram for a 2008 Gulfstream Independence 8367 (just a little plug) to see if there is indeed a hidden fuse/breaker I haven't found. Maybe Mother Gulfstream can help...not holding my breath though.

I contacted Power Gear and as you've said, they responded within 5 minutes (very impressive). After a few emails and a picture of the "relay packs" that click when a switch is pressed, they believe it to be a voltage issue or a bad ground. I do not relish the search for a bad ground. The house batteries show around 13.6 volts when a meter is put to them. The chassis battery shows around 12.6 volts. We were able to isolate the motor connections to determine the (2 out of three, the third we closed manually and didn't check) motors work.

Maybe it's time I give into a dealership and see if they can find it. Not fond of that prospective.

TNT, Im sure you are looking at an interlock problem. Likely a fuse or brkr. They went out ok. Check power distribution for the slides.

Those fuses can be in tricky spots, in the early 2000's Southwinds and others, had a fuse on a smaller printed circuit board which was behind the bedroom breaker panel. You had to actually remove the breaker panel cover to get at it which sort of defies logic.

UPDATE: I spoke with the dealer and they had agreed to take a look at it tomorrow. However, I went out to, for some reason, open the backup camera and it wouldn't come out of it's sliding place, so time to check some fuses.
Found two 5 amp fuses and a 15 amp fuse that were blown, so I purchased some replacements. Put in the first 5 amp fuse and viola the backup cam was functional once again. Replaced the 15 amp fuse and heard a click, so I thought just for the heck of it I'd check the bedroom slide...low and behold, they all work once again. Replace the other 5 amp fuse, but do not know what it is for at this point.

Thank you to all for the help and suggestions. I was getting quite frustrated and worried there for a bit.
Hopefully, we can take a few trips before the next incident...better yet, hope the next incident is a long way off.
