3 slides and not a one will come in...

We have a 2008 Gulfstream Independence and have been the owners for about a month. We recently changed the back-splash area and took care of a couple punch list items. Last night we decided to bring the slide outs in, due to incoming weather. Pushed the Bedroom switch...nothing! Pushed the Galley switch....nothing!...and you guessed it the living area, nothing either.
I've been looking at and for, breakers, fuses and beating myself up trying to think if there is something simple I'm forgetting (you know a brain fart) and nothing again.
We are plugged into shore power and the level indicator shows a full charge on batts.
I've tried running the generator to see if that would help.
Checked the driver's seat safety switch.
Funny thing is they worked a couple days ago....hmmmmm.

Unfortunately, the previous owner didn't pass all the manuals and information along. From the information I have, the slides appear to be Power Gear Electric Slides.

I am planning to check the batts in the morning to be sure they are fully charged. Until then......HELP! Am I missing something or is my rookie side shining through?
Thanks for any help in advance.

Just my experience! I found my problem to be a blown fuse in the main fuse area! Worth checking.

I don't know if it would apply to yours but my Winnebago has a key that locks all the slides. I once used the lock and forgot about it. Some time later I spent a bit of time trying to figure out why my slides wouldn't work. note to self: don't turn the key dummy.

Mine requires the ignition switch to be in the accessory position or the engine running.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Some I've tried and the rest I will try until I get this figured out before we hit the road. Fortunately we are in the drive and not stuck somewhere.

You may want to email Power Gear. They respond quickly and can walk you through some diagnostic tests. Their address is info@powergearus.com . Give them as much info as you can if you do.

On our Gulfstream, the drivers seat must be moved to the most forward position before the slides will operate.

I have power gear electric slides and the engine is supposed to be running when you operate the slide.
I also have an inverter with a very sensitive circuit breaker. When the breaker pops the slides will not open.
And number three is that there is a tv in the bedroom that has a contact on it so the tv must be closed for the slides to work.

By the way, do not push any buttons on the slide controller...That will be bad..don't ask how I know.
